In episodic snapshots, WIR WOLLEN NIE NIE NIE tells the visually stunning myth of two inseparable bodies, stranded in a cold world. On the steps of a mysterious staircase that continually opens new spaces for them, the two beings live through a whiplash dream of raw brutality, deep trust and bizarre poetry, constantly fuelled by the fear of cutting the cord to each other. But soon a third person forces his way into the dichotomous togetherness of two. A small stranger in the grotesque world of larger characters, whose vague intentions raise the question of who is manipulating whom. Skilful puppetry, masterful artistry and dance captivate the viewer through these mysterious creatures. This abstract world feels strangely real and familiar, warming and disturbing at the same time. It opens up space for questions about individuality, community or authenticity. Hidden behind the masks of these figures are the puppeteer Jarnoth and the aerialist Moritz Haase. Under the direction of Philipp Boë, they have devised this evocative and ironic spectacle, brought to the stage with great dedication and skill.
The show WIR WOLLEN NIE NIE NIE is 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.
