A collection of visual-artistic anecdotes about the meaning and madness of life. The stories are sometimes concrete, sometimes abstract, sometimes loud, sometimes quiet, sometimes silly, sometimes gloomy, but always funny and right from the heart of life. Romir thematizes, almost without words, the worries, fears and hopes of a man who wants to free himself from his constraints and yet is looking for a foothold.
For over 20 years Matthias Romir has been creating short pieces on the borderline of juggling, object theater, clowning and video art. The show "Life is short stories" has grown up with its creator and will probably continue to do so. In 2013, the 80-minute theatrical version premiered and the first awards were not long in coming.
