Red Haired Men
Four performers will be interweaving the micro-prose of Kharms, with
elements of dance, circus, contortionism, puppet theatre, magic and ventriloquism.
There was a red-haired man who had no eyes or ears. He didn't have hair either, so he was called red-haired theoretically.
He couldn't speak, since he didn't have a mouth. He didn't have a nose either. He didn't even have any arms or legs. He had no stomach and he had no back an he had no spine and he had no innards whatsoever. There was nothing!
Therefore we don't even know whom we are talking about. It's better that we don't talk any more about him.
