Two beings living in an abstract world, Otus is rooted in human nature. Here is a unique perspective, a
glimpse into their lives, motivations, relationships and habits. Utilising circus, physical theatre, movement,
clown and set design Otus explores tension, the space between characters, objects and the wooden world in
which they reside. Immersed in their own nuances and rendered through acrobatics, juggling, rope, trapeze and staff manipulation, their world unfolds.
