Suitable for Non-German Speakers
Get ready, take a run at it and completely fail – with the help of various comedians’ gestures and made up Brazilian dances, Hermann Heisig dedicates SLAP/STICK to the physicality of absent-mindedness, exaggeration and mechanical movements. A solo about the vastness of space, and the constant denial of efficiency. Coercion as the motor of a journey through non-sense, naivety and ecstasy.
