An extremely talentless, yet enthusiastic follower of the world-famous alchemist Heinricus Cornelius Agrippa, has settled in a theatre basement of a small provincual town. In addition to all his life failures, the young man is now madly in love with the theatres prima donna. Magic and alchemy are the only things that can help him win the heart of the admired beauty.

Nothing will stand in the way of his love. The situation quickly becomes dangerous for himself and for everyone who comes near him.


This speechless story was born as an inspiring collaboration between director and playwright Vahur Keller and magician Meelis Kubo. This is where theatre, magical realism, and magic illusions meet and intertwine into a thrilling theatre experience.


Life is a crazy illusion triggered by love – sometimes it can be funny and sometimes you can laugh out of fear…
