FM Cultural Calendar | Starting Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Zimmermann & de Perrot
FRIDAY SOLD OUT. 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. 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.

Zero Cost House
Zero Cost House is a collaboration between Philadelphia's Pig Iron Theatre Company and acclaimed Japanese playwright Toshiki Okada. Awkward, personal, and idiosyncratic, this is Okada’s most autobiographical work, and his first work created for an English-speaking theatre company. It's a meditation on how Thoreau's Walden changed Okada's life; on the disruptions and re-imaginings that accompany a national disaster; and on the uneasy compromises between radical idealism and contemporary living.
