Circus - Dance - Theater of the Generations
1482: Jasper v. Barckhausen, Melina Küchler, Edgar Kenneweg, Paula Dieken, Eva Besler, Reinhard Brettel, Tania Freitag, Christine Kölbel, Elias Bökenkröger, Mia Weng, Anne Leipert, Sabine Rieck, Kathrin Mlynek, Christin Elchlepp & Adrian Grzymkowski

Age is just a number, or is it really more than that? Using the help of dance, theater and circus, 1482 researches the stigma of growing old and being young in all of its facets. Biographic stories are the point of departure for this colorful journey. Somewhere between juggling, tap dance and magic, very young acrobats meet up with older circus artists and even older actors. Together, they move along the wheel of life.
