Three men and their individual stories of shame carry the production from the start to the end.

The fear of failure and the sense of inferiority are hanging in the air naturally intertwining with the shame inherited, carrying one’s own parents’ mistakes made. Poetry,juggling and knife throwing add flavour to the stories in Shame - cabaret.

“The performance is funny and awful, it’s sickening, and at the same time amusing”. -Helsingin Sanomat, Jussi Tossavainen
