Catch your breath as seven performers tumble through an astonishing spinning house whose inhabitants miraculously live life through 360 degrees, jumping, climbing or dancing.

Mixing circus, theatre, music and dance, this funny, touching and almost physically-impossible performance will make you think about the cycle of life in an entirely new way.

Zimmermann & de Perrot have played in major theatres across the globe. Hans was Heiri is their fourth production to feature at the London International Mime Festival and follows the success of Öper Öpis at the Barbican in 2010.
