Enthusiasm and an irrepressible love of comedy
“The characters are zany, but real”, according to one critic’s praise. Another admired how Theater Irrwisch play down “their fascinating artistic skill as inessential, while they exuberantly live out their imagination and disguise ardent human love with brazen cheekiness”.
Since 1992 the group has been touring the summers of this world with their colourful programme. In their productions the focus is not only on acrobatics, or stilt-walking .These elements are only used to transport stories about being human, stories about zaniness, about life in society and things about which we try to fool ourselves and others.
The off-beat characters change the audience’s way of looking at things. Spontaneity and improvisation are characteristic elements of the art created by Irrwisch. The company breaks taboos and pushes back borders; they win us over in a rare and heart-warming way. Wherever they appear, the actors from Irrwisch inspire general enthusiasm
Irrwisch is: Stefan Novak, Stefan Grassl, Rudolf Hebinger, Christophe Dumalin, Manfred Unterluggauer, Isabella Heugl
