Danse Macabre

After his international successes "Hallo" and "Eins Zwei Drei", the renowned Swiss choreographer and director Martin Zimmermann is now showing his latest creation at the festival. "Danse Macabre" is a humorous evening reminiscent of Samuel Beckett's absurd theatre: three tragicomic characters beyond social norms get together in the no-man's land of a dump of discarded things. Another bizarre figure hovers over the fated community of the three outsiders: Death as a mischievous string-puller. Despite all their problems, the trio always manages to get back on their feet, find surprising ways out and help themselves with typical Zimmermann humour, of which he himself says: "My humour is the ridiculous form of the sad".
