Just imagine:an action movie, but for real. And it stars one of the most booorrring action heroes ever. An egg that no one is allowed to touch. No one! Just a boring egg. A boring egg guarded by two ultra-boring attendants (attendants are boring guards who watch over art objects, and art is…uh…we’ll talk about that another time). And just at the moment that it gets so boring that you begin to fall asleep, we end up in a chase scene.
A: A chase?
A: With an egg?
B: Uh huh.
A: That no one is allowed to touch?
A: But how…I mean what…I, uh…hhmmm…and, uh, and?
B: Can’t tell you anything more, I am afraid.
Two deadpan, boring mime players watch over EGG-tion HERO. With minimal means and a lot of house, garden, kitchen magic they let themselves, each other and the egg vanish into thin air. That’s certainly dangerous, so do try it at home.
Willemijn Zevenhuijzen about EGG-tion HERO
“I found it really boring going to a museum when I was a child. At the same time, I found it awfully exciting because there were things there I wasn’t allowed to touch. I liked to imagine what would have happened if I had stuck my finger into a picture. I fantasized about an action movie in which everything goes really fast, faster than you can think.”
