Dilemma

WE ARE INSIDE OF A MENTAL INSTITUTION. THE FURNISHINGS AND EQUIPMENT CHANGE IMPERCEPTIBLY IN THE HANDS OF THE INSANE, SOMEONE THROWS A BALL OR PLAYS THE VIOLIN, THE ENDLESS SHEETS ARE ACTUALLY A LABYRINTH OR A SCREEN? ARE WE STEPPING ON EACH OTHER'S SHOULDERS AND PLANETS FLITTING AROUND US. ARE WE INTERPRETING THE THEORIES OF PHILOSOPHERS OR PHYSICISTS, OR WITNESSING A MURDER? THE QUESTIONS ARE POSED IN DÜRRENMATT'S PHYSICISTS OF PERPETUAL MOTION, USING A COMBINATION OF THEATRE AND NEW CIRCUS LANGUAGE. TRAGICOMIC GROTESQUE ABSURD, OR SURREAL, OR IS IT REALITY ITSELF THAT WE ARE WALKING AROUND? WE INVITE OUR AUDIENCE TO A THEATRICAL PLAY THAT IS CHILLING AND LYRICAL, HUMOROUS AND THOUGHT-PROVOKING!

"The Simorág Dance Circus' performance is a clever reminder to start thinking urgently about our common concerns, to take the time and effort to inform ourselves, and to choose well which sources of information we trust. As scientists and experts try to raise awareness of the threats to our whole known world, for example here and here, the arts, especially theatre, can help us to be receptive to these issues, to pull our heads out of the sand, to think and act before it is too late."
