Lasts 80’; no intermission.
Like magicians conjuring up something out of nothing, Zimmermann & de Perrot elicit hidden meanings from objects, bodies and sounds. Hans was Heiri builds on the insight that we humans are surprisingly similar when it comes to basic needs and desires. Does life often seem to fail simply because we, as individuals, try so hard to be unique and different? In Hans was Heiri, Zimmermann & de Perrot approach this conundrum with wit, humour, frustration and philosophical depth.
