Monkeymind is a Buddhist term and refers to a fickle, capricious, imaginative and creative spirit.
Simon Mayer, former member of the Vienna State Opera Ballet, P.A.R.T.S. graduate and former member of the dance company ROSAS, peasant performer and artistic director of “Spiel“ festival at the organic farm “Schlossergütl“ in Upper Austria, assumes the role of Monkeymind in this concert performance.The odd eccentric struggles desperately to be understood. Together with his unusual stage comrades he tries to tell something in a very humorous and touching way and to get the essence of things.
