A scenic programme after Gerhard Mensching
»Handwork« consists of 20 short humorous dramas. They are exclusively performed by four hands and feature a kaleidoscope of human wishful thinking, contradictions and inadequacies: odd, funny and sensuous. The playing is sometimes minimalistic, sometimes emphatically physical, and Gerhard Mensching’s onomatopoeic fantasy language leaves ample space for individual associations, giving the scenes their peculiar and unique fascination.
Marc Schnittger and his long-term co-performer Arne Bustorff deploy fine craftsmanship, skill and passion to fuse the interplay of human gesture and reduced figures into a sensuous theatrical experience. A very amusing programme with design that is equally expressive both aurally and acoustically was created under the direction of Mac Lowitz, Almut Fischer and Cora Mehlich.
Marc Schnittger and Arne Bustorff have been invited to many international festivals. They have already performed in countries including France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Poland, Bulgaria, Egypt, Brazil and Israel.
