“Happiness is the only thing that doubles when it is shared” said Albert Schweitzer. The work of Swiss performer and choreographer Martin Schick is based on this premise and blurs the boundaries between the stage and real life. HALFBREADTECHNIQUE is a strikingly simple but original way of addressing the injustice in the world. Schick asks: why keep everything for yourself when there’s enough to go around? His answer is to give various other artists – dancers from countries shaken by economic crisis – the chance to present themselves and their work on his stage. In Zagreb, one Croatian dancer is due to showcase his talent alongside Martin Schick. His thrilling performance tell us much about the art of surviving as an artist and as a human being in our money-ruled society. This intelligent and enjoyable induction into post-capitalism à la Schick provides audiences with food for thought.

Concept and performance: Martin Schick
