in order to prevent the coronavirus (covid-19) from spreading rapidly, we are forced to stop our performance schedule at the moment. these uncertain times have drastically restricted the art we all love. thats why we have set up a selected online program with films of our work until end of july. since the failure of events is a threat to the existence of artists, you can help us to overcome this crisis by buying soli tickets.
we thank you for your support. stay healthy and show solidarity. today more than ever !

»the struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man‘s heart. one must imagine sisyphus happy.« albert camus.
»every single day« is freely inspired by the myth of sisyphus by albert camus. the absurd is the tension between the absurdity of the world on the one hand and the longing for a meaning or meaningful action. sisyphos is a symbol of an attitude to life and throws us back to our vulnerability as a human being and its transience. camus has reinterpreted the myth – he drew a person who, while carrying the weight of his task heavily, found meaning and even happiness in the permanent monotony of his everyday life.
»for the futile longing of people, she finds fascinating, powerful images. monotony never arises because everything remains in a dangerous state of suspense, because the rebellion against the senselessness of this great ensemble is demonstrated with such strength and force that you want to keep on watching. music played a large part in the atmospherically extremely dense dance evening. in the end, deeply impressed spectators.« nürnberger nachrichten
like sisyphus, the interpreters are involved in actions that seem hopeless – not because they want to, but because they are unable to free themselves from them. in a time loop of recurring movements with slight, almost imperceptible changes, the situation escalates and inevitably leads to an outbreak that can lead to a possible resolution.
»every single day« is a poetic approach to the constantly growing absurdity. it drives everyday situations to the limit of the surreal and allows deep human characteristics to appear there. moving images in constant development like the cycle of life. sisyphos stands for the daily challenge of doing something »impossible«. the recurring combines hope and illusion at the same time.
