Gesundheit! is an intimate gathering of individuals coming from different paths of life. Stepping in and stripping off conventions, the performers invite you to join in the circle for a 360 degree experience of dance, music and spoken word.

A raw, honest and unbridled meeting point, this intense encounter takes the audience into a unique world where three characters explore and unravel their relationship.
