Performed by Jonas and Esther Slanzi
11 – 19 Feb
ZWÄI, the circus of Jonas and Esther Slanzi, is dedicated to their artform’s aesthetic, rather than its spectacle.
ZWÄI means “two” in their native Swiss-German. In a series of simple, graceful routines, using the bare minimum of equipment, a rope between two suspended pulleys, a small table and ten green bottles (sitting on the floor), the Slanzis play out an even-tempered story of teasing and enchantment – anything you can do, I can do better – between a couple.
Esther is an angel on a rope, slim, delicate and composed; Jonas, too, is no ordinary acrobat/strongman, with his pale skin and high forehead, he looks like a Werner Herzog character.
