A complete small world with ushers, amusing characters and, of course, the theatre performance itself – all in just one box. Come on now, come on in, 10 seats available for each performance.

A yo-yo is more than just a toy - Naoto Okada from Japan delivers the proof. Perfect timing, total precision and lightning speed are the amazing features of the performance given by this Asian professional. The yo-yo world champion of 2009 and 2011 is the winner of the first-ever Freiburger Leiter in the category street theatre!
