Craftsmanship confronting circus.
In Sawdust Symphony Michael Zandl, David Eisele and Kolja Huneck combine their passion for crafting, object manipulation and the smell of fresh wood.
In a society where craftsmanship seems to be disappearing, this contemporary circus performance talks about the human desire to create: the process from vision to construction, the tragedy of work and the relationship between tools and humans. Three obsessed characters discover and transform their space and themselves to take the spectator into a unique DIY experience.
Sawdust Symphony is an intense dialogue between satisfaction, frustration and the smell of gasoline.
The fact is that Sawdust Symphony is unique; I have not seen anything like it on stage, in the circus ring or anywhere else. I guess the nearest thing to it would be Cirque Berserk. There were echoes of Dada, Samuel Beckett and even Alien and moments of breathtaking brilliance, inspired originality and astounding wit.” “Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.
