Hero 2.0 - The Show of all Shows
Gastspiel im TiB
If you don’t think you are the best actor, stop acting. If you don’t think you are making the best show, don’t make it. If you don’t think you can be selected for the programme, don’t apply. Hero 2.0 talks exactly about this, it’s not a question of faith but complete and blind conviction, that Hero 2.0 IS the Show of all Shows.
Hero 2.0’s main theme is ambition. We talk about it through problematizing theatre. How we make it, how we perceive it, how we perform it. Its metatheatricality is honest and inclusive. The two performers do everything by themselves. Their genuine and humorous modus operandi becomes their theatrical modus vivendi.
Two naked actors, stripped of everything but their desire to achieve the Show of all shows.
Our projects are generated through research, experiment, learning and reflection, in constant search of possibilities and capabilities of expression. We don’t want to divide or restrict theatre. We understand it in its entirety, with a tendency to learn from each other. Our goals are accessibility for a diverse audience and spreading theatrical awareness among all classes and generations.
"There is no doubt, that the second part of the theatre series Hero by Vito Weis and Uroš Kaurin is an ultimate performance. It is actually humbly subtitled as the performance of all performances”.(...) But do not let any of this mislead you: Hero 2.0 truly is the performance of all performances.(...) Naked as the stage, mute as the light. - Rok Bozovičar, Dnevnik, 28. 2. 2018
Without pathos, what most captures them is the syntagm love for theatre. - Melita Forstnerič Hajnšek, Večer, 13. 6. 2018
