"4 STARS. Boisterous, off-the-wall humour and fizzy, rollickingly good entertainment."
"Zimmermann & de Perrot create absurd, surreal masterpieces of visual theatre."
–Total Theatre Review
With a great deal of mischief but at the same time anger and depth, the duo Zimmermann & de Perrot present a disconcertingly original marriage of theatre, circus and dance. Supported by five circus artists and dancers, these two directors, who now enjoy dazzling success, have far exceeded all expectations in their new work. Poets as well as magicians, they keep a piece overflowing with humor regulated to the nearest millimeter. The stage design, which revolves on a horizontal axis, forces the performers into the most unlikely positions. All this is put at the service of a caustic story, which makes Hans was Heiri a work that has broken down barriers among the public to an extent rarely seen.
