Printed on silver metallic card stock with navy lettering, this rare poster is an advertisement for a show at Rote Fabrik, a performance venue in Zurich, titled Manntje Manntje Timpe Te. This title is derived from a German fairy tale about a fisherman and his wife.
The poster is clear about the unique nature of this performance, as it states in English, “NOT A DANCE AND NOT A PLAY.” Rather, it is promoted as a meeting of dance and talk that draws on the talents of both dancers and speakers, as coordinated by the choreographer Tina Mantel and the director Alice Thaler.
Kurt Thaler designed this poster.
