Awards ceremony of the Foundation Heinz Spoerli Preis with glanz & gloria



Awards ceremony of the Foundation Heinz Spoerli Preis on May 9, 2013

21.04.2013 NZZ am Sonntag
Das international erfolgreiche Schweizer Theater-Duo Zimmermann & de Perrot verbindet Akrobatik, Musik und Poesie. Inzwischen sind sie weltberühmt.
Aber sie haben immer noch etwas Lausbubenhaftes. Am 9. Mai erhalten die beiden Künstler den Spoerli – Preis.

Manfred Papst

Artikel NZZ am Sonntag



Foundation Heinz Spoerli Award goes to Zimmermann & de Perrot

“The “Contribution to Preserving the Dance Artform” from the Heinz Spoerli Foundation will be awarded for the fourth time – but this time,
contrary to its stated purpose. In giving it to Zimmermann & de Perrot, it is not dancers who will be acclaimed, but an ensemble that breaks through the limits
of the genre and plumbs the depths of its possibilities. Zimmermann & de Perrot are consummate trailblazers; their work bears witness to an overwhelming
interest in developing new forms of expression, characterised by a drive to innovate and a revolutionary pioneering spirit.
With their distinctive amalgam of dance, theatre, music, circus and movable stage sets, they have established a new species of performance."
Foundation Heinz Spoerli

The awards ceremony will take place on May 9, 2013 at Schiffbau (Schauspielhaus) Zurich

Depuis plus de 10 ans, de Gaff Aff (2006) à Chouf Ouchouf (2009) en passant par Öper Öpis (2008), ces deux-là inventent une forme de théâtre-cirque au burlesque très contemporain, qui explose avec leur nouveau spectacle, Hans was Heiri, au Théâtre de la Ville à Paris où il a reçu un superbe accueil le soir de la première.

Swiss Dance and Choreography Award 2009 for ÖPER ÖPIS

Martin Zimmermann and Dimitri de Perrot received the Swiss Choreographic Price for their creation Öper Öpis.

The awarding committee justified their choice as follows: »With Zimmermann & de Perrot we are honoring a duo for developing a unique artistic language through the synergy of music and movement. Their ingenious stages manage to create their own worlds, transforming suprisingly and playfully, thereby starting to dance on their own. 
In their newest play „Öper Öpis“, they move masterly between the genres of Circus, Artistry, Dance and DJing, while creating stories and characters downright human and touching. Martin Zimmermann and Dimitri de Perrot reflect means and media without losing their lust for play. Their work is distinguished by professionalism and independence, unites highest aesthetic expectations with broad effect and has international appeal. »
