What is success? Is failure a state of mind? Can I find joy and happiness in my struggle? If the object doesn't care if I beat it, am I really beating it? "Absurd Hero" reveals a dead-pan delirious drama between artist and large 25 kg heavy red walking globe. The hero is confronted with different game situations, which he can overcome only through his perseverance. Inspired by the Myth of Sisyphus from Albert Camus, the circus is presented as a potentially joyful, yet endlessly futile endeavor.

"Fine research and poetic language" - Teatro San Materno (CH)
"Very interesting work combining the technique of circus, silent movie, and the taste of beckettian paralogic." - Between the Seas (GR)
