The Alchemystorium


The Alchemystorium Cafe dispenses coffee in a highly unusual fashion; more unusual still is the supernatural service offered as an accompaniment to your cappuccino.

Using silent physical comedy, puppetry and striking visuals Gomito present an original comic romance. Enter a curious world of absurd magic as the inhabitants of The Alchemystorium get their first taste of love.
