Two men in grey suits stand next to a black box. A grey triangle hangs behind them in front of a black curtain. Between the two men sits a life sized wooden artist's model, with a juggling baton under an outstretched arm.

Like cogs in a machine, these dreary office workers must repeat the same repetitive tasks day in, day out. They don’t speak, don’t interact – until Statue arrives and brings their daily grind to a screeching halt.

Do you still remember playing games as a child? Do you remember who won? Or just that you played? When the drums sound, the game officially begins!

From Taiwan's FOCA - Formosa Circus Art, comes Mr. III三III (Mr Three), a juggling, music, and acrobatic adventure about ditching the suit and tie and reclaiming joy.

Fringe Focus Taiwan is supported by The Ministry of Culture, Republic of China (Taiwan) and Cultural Division, Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Sydney.
