The Catastrophic Theatre


written & directed by Greg Dean

Legendary local theatre weirdo Greg Dean is known as an actor, director, and designer, often all at once. With HERZSTÜCK, he turns his singular aesthetic to film, realizing a project nearly 10 years in the making. A pair of clownish musicians attempt to perform a duet for violin and piano, but a series of interruptions and distractions leads to gruesome complications, and hilarity ensues in this bleak meditation on the futility of love and all other human endeavors. Inspired by a 14-line theatrical fragment by the late East German playwright, Heiner Müller, HERZSTÜCK is a deconstruction of old, b&w silent film comedies — think Laurel & Hardy meets David Cronenberg.
