It’s a plot made for a trashy novel: a young woman secures a job in the mansion of a reclusive aristocrat. Then she starts to fall in love, despite the rumours about her new boss. Has she been Cooped? Made up of two Brits, a Spaniard and a Bavarian, the Cirque du Soleil veteran group Spymonkey creates refined physical comedy pieces that exploit Monty Python-like British humour to the delight of audiences around the globe. This is the first time that one of their pieces has been shown in Germany. Through January 26.
