Credits Tour Press

Martin Zimmermann: movement artist, fervent tinkerer and reckless wannabe presents – for the first time ever – a solo creation. An attempt to fling the absurdities of his inner life inside out and get a grip on his bizarre thought processes. For the setting of this reation, Martin Zimmermann has chosen a frame structure, turning it into a shop-window-type space to showcase a tragicomic figure driven by the desire to become what he appears to be. The staid, seemingly static framework turns out to be much more dynamic, much more fragile than one thought. The performer tries to adapt himself to the ever more out-of-control world of appearances. Objects come alive and fly around his head, magic overflows the space, obliterating the border between fiction and reality. Martin Zimmermann has been appearing onstage for about 20 years. With Hallo he demonstrates the same passion for performance that he had at the beginning of his career. In the calamity-riddled Hallo, Zimmermann keeps trying to work his way through incessantly new, surreal circumstances. He loses the link to reality, mistakes himself for his own mirror image, folds himself up and becomes another prop on the stage. Martin Zimmermann’s worn out body develops a different, more urgent body language. The artist, trapped under his own spell and his unbridled passion, nearly trips and is saved only by his off-the-wall humour.
