BALSAM is a sensory and musical performance. An alchemist concert. A seductive laboratory where live music mixes with intoxicating aromas and flavours and physical and visual experiences.

Against a musical background, the audience witnesses all sorts of experiences, in which ingredients are transformed into something else using an alchemical process of dissolution, fermentation, distillation and so on. Liquid becomes solid, wet becomes dry, cold becomes hot and vice versa. The oil hardens to form edible pearls, a bud produces an electric sensation, a mineral ends up turning into a sweet...

The result of this visual show is an experience of balms, powders, drinks and canapés of all scents, colours and flavours, served to the public by the performers. Company as a consolation, because the question remains: will the "true gold" be found someday?
