The Wonderful and The Ordinary

Tanz im August | HAU Hebbel am Ufer (HAU1)

Production Details / Press Releases

Is it true that we tend to remember the big events rather than the ordinary ones? That we recall battles and revolutions, kings and queens? And what remains of all the apparently irrelevant details of daily life? In “The Wonderful and The Ordinary” the Swedish choreographer Gunilla Heilborn and the Theater im Bahnhof Graz search for recollective techniques for the every day. With an array of means, with movement, aromas and pop songs, the performers attempt to call up their memories – and reveal the wonderful in the apparently ordinary.
