Hermann Heisig + May Zarhy / Mamaza


Hermann Heisig is currently the most colorful bird in the Berlin dance scene.

(Der Tagesspiegel).


In Next to Near, together with May Zarhy (IL/DE), he deals with intimacy and distance in times of videotelephony and low cost airlines: We feel connected with people far away buy yet simultaneously distance ourselves from our immediate surroundings. Do we need proximity to feel intimacy? A choreography about the growing absurdity of our relation towards proximity and distance.
