Hans was Heiri

28 October 2013 / , , ,

Wonderfully erie, funny, outlandish, and mesmerizing Hans was Heiri by Zimmermann & de Perrot is part theatre, part performance, part circus all set to dreamlike downtempo house music played live. If not already awesome, the main stage prop is a rotating four room diorama fitted with furniture and filled with performers tumbling gracefully from floor to wall, wall to ceiling, and back again with acrobatic delight. It’s as much childlike as it is lunacy, as performers interact with each other intimately in an incoherent language of gestures and sounds. What’s really striking however is the ease, fluidity, and grace in which our seven performers move around and interact with the space—dazzling with each move they make. Hans was Heiri is a brilliant visual and physical take on relationships and human nature, check out BAM’s site where it was performed and view Zimmermann & de Perrot’s site for even more info.
