17 years ago by now , 1987 , we decided to create a show , which should be different , – how that ’ ! In the show business many curtains were red , many legs were long and feathers on top of all. And yet , there was that vision and that urge to try – and since we do. With red curtains and long legs and feathers , too and with that one shining detail , which is by now CALYPSO’s trademark.
The human being’s natural beauty – live on stage.
We constantly strip down decorations and costumes to the bare necessities. We minimize choreographic ambitions and create choreographies , which highlight the specific talents and abilities of our actors and actresses. We do not cater to any markets or fashions or trends.
The overload and without any doubt the overkill of today’s frenzies of the media world are verifying our concept of reduction.
Daily training of physical stamina , daily rehearsal of the current show and new productions, try to regain daily our motivation not to copy , not to reproduce the traded cliches and stereotypes.
It’s said : If you’ve seen one , you ’ve seen them all. Well if you travel to Thailand and stay in Bangkok, plan to see our show. It will give you an unseen and unheard-of experience.
The revival of the art of entertainment!
