This weekend at Villa Kuriosum, Scheffelstrasse 21, Busland presents:
September 30 17:30 to 19:00
“Born To Be Wild”  with Jeff Hess and special guests Alexey Mironov and Gustav.

Jeff Hess - physical comedy at its finest

Faster than a laughing hyena, Jeff Hess whirls across the stage at hurricane force, tearing the audience off their seats and triggering bursts of laughter with a mere wink. 

Experience magical moments with a master of slapstick! Jeff Hess has "Crazy for the Advanced". The actor and clown from New York City combines his unique form of  slapstick,  his  stirring  action  comedy , with a fascinating body language, leaving no one unmoved and no dry eye. 

The silver medal winner of the 21st  Koblenz Gauklerfest  Kleinkunst  Preis 2012  worked  among others with Til Schweiger and Richard Roundtree in the film  Joe and Max, was a comedy sketch artist on the Late Night with David Letterman Show and was hired as an entertainer for Bob Hope and Bon Jovi's birthday parties. 

Jeff Hess - "Master of all grimaces!" With irresistible charm and a grandiose energy, Jeff creates an unforgettable comedy experience through each of his characters   . 

"Madness has a name: Jeff Hess"

________________________________________________________________
Alexey Mironov     Alexi Mironov

He needs no language and only a few props to portray the bizarre world of his
partly melancholic, partly absurdly clumsy hero on stage

Trained at the famous Moscow State Circus School, where he learned the basics of the classical style of the Russian cloning school, ALEXEY MIRONOV became the predecessor of the type of clowning that combines traditional clowning techniques with modern theater.

Even as a very young clown, Alexey Mironov was able to demonstrate his comedic talent at numerous international festivals: Circus Festival in Tournai 1992, 18th Worldwide Festival of Circus of Tomorrow in Paris 1995, International Clown Festival in Moscow 2001, 3rd International Variety and Circus Festival in Dresden 2004, Slava's Polunin "Congress of Fools" in Moscow
2008. 

As a talented and promising young clown, he was discovered by the world-famous avant-garde circus Cirque du Soleil and for whose program »Quidam« took part in the North American Tour 1997-1999. Numerous engagements worldwide followed
: in the USA and Europe.


Mironov hardly speaks a word on stage. Although there is also a moment
when he actually speaks almost every language on earth, in one
report. But the language he knows best is that of gestures and
body sculpture.

"Bon voyage!" is the end of a story without the beginning or exactly
the other way around. Once upon a time there was a small man, and another medium man, and another large man, and another super large man, and another tiny bone man... Mironov doesn't play with masks, but with our identification cards.

The Flash Gonzalez Show
Screen Shot 2023 09 25 at 19.06.22

October 1st, 16:00

Before us stands a Tramp,drunken and clumsy, but yet fully aware of his audience. This subtle clown does not bring us magic in form of big illusions and expensive sets, but deals with the far smaller, more modest world of a tramp. His comical magic  is provoked by the problems he has with clothing, wine, pigeons and hunger!
Flash is a charismatic, elegant and spontaneous performer, trained in physical theater, dance and acrobatics. His art is full of detail, movement, precise expression and the ability to seize the moment!
This personality is so likeable you will want to take home with you!

Busland Program 2023

12. April Schattentheater "Die Falle" 20 Uhr

Mittwoch, 12. April   um 20 Uhr

Schattentheater "Die Falle"

von Riadh Ben Ammar
 
Das Theaterstück ist eine Geschichte über die geschlossene EU-Außengrenze und ihre Missverständnisse.
Man kann nicht an der Küste leben, ohne die andere Seite wenigstens einmal gesehen zu haben. In Tanger, Algier oder Tunis sitzen selbst die Katzen im Hafen und schauen auf die andere Seite. Alle wollen dahin. Die meisten träumen davon…

Die jungen Leute, die es schaffen in Europa zu landen, versuchen alles, um nicht wieder mit leeren Händen zurückzukehren. Illegalität, Kriminalität und die ständige Angst abgeschoben zu werden sind ihr Alltag.
 
Für das Recht auf Bewegungsfreiheit!
 
Eintritt 8-15 €
