Hippana.Maleta, Germany / Ireland / Spain
Two jugglers on two treadmills, they run and run and run - can neither stop, nor advance. In "Runners", circus performers and jugglers Jonas Schiffauer and Alex Allison deal with the real and perceived speed of time. Together with multi-instrumentalist Moisés Mas García, they explore the evolution of human gait in an increasingly immobile culture. Central players in this stunning show are the relentless treadmills and assembly lines, conducted by Moisés Mas García like his musical instruments. He precisely orchestrates music, movement, machines, and people through games and experiments. In this way, the exciting and grotesque interaction of the three protagonists is set in motion and kept running. After the success of "Tunnel," "Runners" is the second creation of Hippana.Maleta.
The production is selected and supported by Zirkus ON, the creative alliance for circus arts in and from Germany. Ruhrfestspiele are a partner and jury member of Zirkus ON.
