GAP of 42 by Chris & Iris
With humour and emotion, Chris and Iris show how they approach their difference in size, creating images and situations that relate to other areas of life and broader relationships. GAP of 42 unites extraordinary acrobatics with situational comedy. Philosophical questions are raised, bizarre images and absurd moments are created. Acrobatics with precision and lightness - impressive, touching, and profound.
TUNNEL by Maleta company + Hippana Theatre
Two jugglers fantasize about social advancement in order to experience a moment of shared greatness. In the process, they encounter a disenchanted world and raise their utopian demand of a society filled with poetry. On their common path, they must face the challenge of revealing personal ideals, fears and idiosyncrasies to their counterparts. TUNNEL addresses both rivalry and sworn friendship, the desirefor advancement and the fear of falling. In collaboration with Cie Maleta, Hippana Theatre presents a juggling show about the genius of the impossible and the belief in fantasy.
The shows GAP of 42 and TUNNEL are presented within the series of guest performances PLAY. The program is a powerful and contemporary homage to circus. Young, up-and-coming companies from Germany, cool insider tips, and renowned award winners from the last festival year perform in the span of two months. The scheduled pieces represent a wonderful collection of different circus styles, are all outstanding creations, and a unique opportunity to travel the world of New Circus without a moment's stress.
"Seldom has one seen a dance or artistic couple that presents the great themes of being so subtly, so poetically" (Bernd Guido Weber - " Schwäbische").
