A tale outside of specific time and place that explores connection and intimacy in the urban environment. Through visceral movement, subtle theatricality and an eclectic musical score for electric guitar, we follow the lives of three people violently intertwined by a sudden collision in a dystopian crossroad. In the effort to dismiss the incident as trivial an unexpected dialogue emerges. What was seen as an obstacle is now an opportunity and the crossroad the setting for a unique bond to develop. Is this a trivial encounter or one that will change their course forever?

'Trivialis is shrouded in mystery, but for me, that's part of this show's charm - it appeals on a purely instinctive level. A constant struggle is after all part of the human condition, and one to which we can all relate. Trivialis is a captivating hour of original dance and music, delivered by some very talented performers…’
