Welcome to the backfacing reality of the inback physical illusion!
With their unique and never before seen performance approach, inback characters tell humorous and exciting stories and create a fascinating illusion art for both young and old audiences. The non-verbal performance leads to a wide range of audiences on an international level.
Since 2016 we are travelling around the world to make audiences laugh, reflect and be amazed at our physical illusion.
We traveled to more than 50 festivals in 10 countries on 3 continents.
In 2021 the inback company started into a new chapter, creating a mini-series of 3 episodes.
It’s also the first time including a whole film team and partners for idea, story concept, sound and production.
The series “Hinterhofgeschichten” is currently growing in the postproduction, coming out soon!

With the new movie section also our mission is shifting from creating nowadays’ stories to taking active responsibility for possible futures.
Our mission is to develop narratives that strengthen empathy and understanding of human differences, as well as environmental concerns. With a playful approach our mission is to develop characters that with their physical peculiarity elude usual categories, going beyond social norms and ideals, shifting the discourse of the "normal" and creating new role models.
