Marmalade is a delicious, tactile performance about meeting , mixing and blending. The two performers taste and feel in poetic movements and circus actions while creating an exquisite and visual experience together with the audience. Marmalade looks at the world through body, eye, feeling and taste in a room with fluffy skirts, soft circus and Fellini music.

Marmalade has performed over 300 shows in sold-out tours in Sweden since its premiere in September 2013. It was selected for APAP in New York City 2014 and IPAY 2015, Swedstage, SUBCASE and The Swedish Performing Arts Biennal 2015.  Following the first meeting with American audiences, Marmalade has been invited to tour in the U.S, Singapore, Japan, Africa, Russia and Europe.
