A tragi-comic performance about the art of failing!
WINNER OF THE AUDIENCE AWARD AARHUS 2017
A SNOWBALL'S CHANCE IN HELL
In A SNOWBALL'S CHANCE IN HELL DON GNU travels back to the 1920s to examine the beautiful art of failing.
Two men in the form of DON (Jannik Elkær) and GNU (Kristoffer Louis Andrup Pedersen) throw themselves into the robes of classic film, in order to describe the clown inside us all. The scene is set in the iconic universe of silent films from a time with specks of white dust on the screen and Charlie Chaplin on the loose – the questions is, however, whether DON and GNU can manage to stay within the frame..?
In an intimate, entertaining and expressive performance where dance, video, music and interaction with the audience interplay, we are drawn into a world of simple human conflicts, failures and power-struggles on micro-level, where it is difficult not to recognize and laugh at the clown within ourselves.
"A masterly theater gem"
