In Estonian “pung” means “bud”, but it is also the genitive case of “punk” – so it is definitely a mixture of buds and punk, plus something more. But no worries, it will all clear up during the performance. Or at least most of it. And, since in English “pung” is a synonym for “sleigh”, we kindly ask you to sit on the sleigh and ride into “pungworld”.”

The performance combines elements of physical theatre, new circus and contemporary dance. The audience experience frightening and also very surprising moments when performers play with characters and phenomenon, deformed bodies and witty remarks.

In the performances of Renate Keerd can be found untamed glamour and witticism. The characteristic elements of her work are clothes and other objects and with them she creates funny and interesting compositions of movements and that creates a whole story.
