Martin Zimmermann shows us this magnificent clownesque circus theatre for the first time in Germany. The three actors, dancers and clowns inspire with weird humour and amaze with almost unbelievable body art.
The setting: a museum. The characters: the curator, the artist, the technician. Or three clowns – none of them with red noses but three virtuoso artists cast in a vicious triangle. When they clash and get caught up in power struggles, running up against conventions, walls and their own boundaries, the result is a marvellous uninhibited delirium. In Eins Zwei Drei Martin Zimmermann, one of the most celebrated exponents of contemporary circus, reinvents the mythical figure of the clown. In his tragi-comedy about authority, submission and anarchy, he draws a burlesque portrait of the limits and rules that we apply to ourselves and our bodies.
