Alexander Vantournhout takes the stage as Thor wielding his own Mjölnir. Will the hammer be controlled? The relationship between performer and hammer soon becomes ambiguous. Where does he get the strength to manipulate this heavy hammer and when does the hammer take over and become uncontrollable?

The concerthall of Wintercircus is wheelchair accessible. You can reach the entrance via the stairs of the Platteberg or by taking the stairs or elevator down at De Krook. The entrance is accessible for wheelchairs via the elevator opposite the library.
