“Encapsulates the festival’s welcoming spirit” Matt Trueman, The Telegraph

When Ivan Hansen’s neighbour suddenly passes away, he realises how little he knows about him… A blend of personal memories, shared stories and melodies to remember, Next Door is a joyful celebration of the imagination. Join Ivan and his good friend Pekka on an adventure through the past, as they explore what really connects us.

Founded in 2006, Out of Balanz is an award-winning international theatre ensemble based in Copenhagen, Denmark. The company is led by Katrina Bugaj and Troels Hagen Findsen.
