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".
Martin Zimmermann was awarded the country's highest theatre honour, Schweizer Grand Prix Darstellende Künste / Hans-Reinhart-Ring 2021.
