Quim Bigas: Hippos
Sat 20 July, 1pm & 3pm
Fun fun fun - join these gorgeous hippos on a crazy philosophical journey!
In a world where animals and people live together, we encounter hippopotamuses that choose a middle path. Are they humans disguised as they animal they wear? Or are they hippos that are searching for themselves inside of the individual that inhabits their body? Join these hippos on a physical journey that could be a fable, a metaphor, the preliminary reflection for a doctoral thesis on humanity and animality or, simply, a chance for all audiences to find themselves, and be a little lonelier, but in better company.
About the Artists
ZUM-ZUM is an artistic project based in Catalonia, Spain, that, since 1994, has been dedicated to the creation, production and diffusion of works of theatre for all audiences. During this time, the company has produced 18 shows, performing them on more than 4,500 occasions. The most recent shows of the company are: The Shirt of the Happy Man, The Girl that Lived in a Shoebox, and The Hen that Laid the Golden Egg.
Under the artistic direction of Ramon Molins, ZUM-ZUM has always sought to make each and every one of its shows into a unique, one-of-its-kind experience that expands the limits of imagination and challenges the way in which the young and the old alike view the world through the lens of theatre.
Holding a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts with a specialization in Choreography and New Performance Practices from the DOCH/UNIARTS (Stockholm), Quim currently lives between Barcelona and Copenhagen.
His work is developed principally from his interest in choreography, play-writing, information sciences and writing. Since the start of his career, he has worked in numerous creative formats, which has given him an awareness of the fact that the constellation of people and roles within a given format affects both the aesthetics and the ethics that they bring with them.
