Physical, Funny, No words

"Fish and Ships" is a production that combines visual theater and situational comedy using pantomime and tells a lively story without words. The focus is on a patient who rushes home because he is expecting a delivery that is of enormous importance to him: his long-awaited smartwatch.


In this performance, humans and smartwatches harmonize perfectly with each other and even seem to communicate with each other. The protagonist hopes that the constant updates and advice from his “watch” will ensure that his life goes optimally, but of course everything goes differently than planned. With his own smartwatch he gets into situations that are sometimes funny, dramatic or even misleading for him.

The piece revolves around the concept of desire and fulfillment as well as the powerful influence of media advertising. The solo performance presents various aspects of mechanization and automation through pantomime and dance.

Jannis Eggelsmann is a performer and researcher in the field of performing arts who develops non-verbal stories from pantomime. His style combines experimental pantomime and physical theater through choreography, improvisation and illusionary theater elements and moves at the interface of dance and performance.
