Olli Hauenstein & Eric Gadient
In Olli Hauenstein’s “Clown-Syndrom”, two artists of a different kind stand together on the stage. Eric Gadient is an actor with the Down Syndrome. Together, they create the “Clown-Syndrome”.
The unusual duo “Clown-Syndrom” charms and baffels the audience, reaching their hearts. They were highly praised in more than 150 shows. Olli Hauenstein and Eric Gadient act skillfully and at the same level, rearranging hierarchies and questioning common models, which is both charming and moving. No, it is not a pedagogical theater: the actors make their differences become irrelevant if not even invisible. Simple means, genuine feelings and a profound sense of humor: these are the main characteristics of “Clown-Syndrom”.
