We can’t recommend Hans de Hieri by Zimmermann & de Perrot highly enough! In the director’s note, they describe the show as “…building on the insight that 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?”
The five cast members approach this question, by way of a number of hilarious characters who live within the world of a revolving house! The 80 minute show keeps you transfixed as they dance across the stage, perform amazing acrobatic feats, amuse with puppetry, and make you laugh out loud as they humourise characters we are all familiar with. We especially liked the gospel preacher!
On the side lines is a DJ, dressed the part in full tuxedo, who keeps the music flowing and even mixes the audience sounds.
Here’s a link to the trailer:
It’s on until tomorrow at the Barbican Theatre…so go and see it if you can!
