Red Haired Men

Alexander Vantournhout

created in 2018

Alexander Vantournhout’s piece focuses on the work of Russian writer Daniil Harms. With three other performers, they transpose "Harmsian" features on stage: miscomfort in movement, physicality, a certain nonsense and the substantiality of language.
A mix of dance, acrobatics and theatre, Red Haired Men creates an atmosphere in which characters appear and disappear, where wonder and humour never come without a risk.
