The creator is sitting at his small work table and playing with clay. What will he make this time? What life is hidden in a lump of clay? Dream-like landscapes? Exotic plants? Magical creatures, monsters, fairies? The creator sets to work: he cuts, slaps, squeezes, splits, kneads, forms, bends, layers, peels, bends, glues. And the clay? Is it really going to put up with all that? On the other hand, if something gets broken, is it really the end of the world? Not at all! With his unique theatre productions, Joachim Torbahn is one of the rare artists who has managed to create an internationally acclaimed, innovative synthesis of visual arts and theatre. His new piece is devoted to one of humankind’s earliest means of expression. Clay offers a myriad of creative possibilities and handling it is a very primal, sensuous pleasure.
