A poetic world

“It’s an art to use so little and have such a great impact.” With almost no props, only through strong presence, intense play, and a direct connection to the audience, we create a tender and poetic world which unfolds its full magic as a counterpoint to the hustle and bustle around.

Suitable for any event

The Greatest Thing isn’t a festival-only show and can be played at pretty much any event. It’s a beautiful addition to themed markets and Christmas or winter markets, it can be performed in theatres, at galas or private events. And since The Greatest Thing tells a unique love story, it is also a fantastic wedding show.

Additional, we can play an excerpt of the whole story, a short best-of piece that captures the essence of our fairytale and delivers 7 mesmerizing minutes of live music and mime theatre.

Staging options

The Greatest Thing can be performed completely self-sufficient out in the open, but works best on stages with good light and PA. We also love to play in unusual locations: castle garden, park, at the beach, on board of a ship… Let your imagination run wild on where to place us.


Miss Walker’s music

Miss Walker wrote, composed and performs all her songs, and we are really proud of The Greatest Thing’s original music. To get a feeling for the sound of the show, check out Miss Walker’s album He(a)d Zirkus on Bandcamp, Spotify or Apple Music.
