Lots of movement, fun and rhythm is promised by company Hippana.Maleta with their piece Runners.

Two jugglers on a treadmill, they run and run and can’t get down, while a musician pushes them through a series of games and experiments. What motivates them? What moves them? In Runners, German circus performer and juggler Jonas Schiffauer and his Irish-born colleague Alex Allison team up with Spanish multi-instrumentalist Moísés Mas García to explore the real and perceived speed of time. In doing so, they address the evolution of the human gait as well as the ability of throwing in an increasingly immobile culture.

Central players in the production are two relentless treadmills, which are conducted by Moísés Mas García like his musical instruments, in order to set in motion and keep going the equally tense and grotesquely funny game between the three protagonists.
