This trip is a race whose true reward is experience. In this respect, these men are the best competitors – real champions. They are even better than they think. Two cross-country skiers off the map, side-by-side in a single ski run, undergo a cross-country odyssey – a wandering journey with an obscure course and an unclear ending. Grab your ski poles, wax your moustache, take an encouraging shot of tea and let’s go! Cross-country Odyssey draws upon The Trick Brothers’ extensive experience with street theatre and makes full use of their strengths: self-irony, juggling, object manipulation, moderate acrobatics and gentle humour. As the popular German proverb says: “Langläufer leben länger” – “Cross-country skiers live longer.” Laughter and humour are also said to prolong life, so come discover the elixir of immortality with this performance!
