“Batida has made a musical and captivating performance about the fear of the unknown in both children and adults… ‘You can not be found if you do not get lost’ is the simple logic. Thematically, it is therefore difficult not to send Søren Kierkegaard a loving thought; ‘To dare is to lose your foothold for a while, not to dare is to lose oneself’. That’s exactly what this show is about, and it conveys its message so musically and captivatingly that you walk away happily – ready to take your life by storm. ”
