In Jakop Ahlbom Company’s Lebensraum (Habitat), mime, acrobatics, illusions and visual gags are in constant flux. Reminiscent of Buster Keaton’s silent films, this award-winning dark comedy transpires without a word. Reinier Schimmel and Yannick Greweldinger play male roommates whose peaceful cohabitation centers on their obsessive neatness. Everything changes with the arrival of a not-so-efficient mechanical maid, brilliantly portrayed by Silke Hundertmark. This unlikely trio quickly descends into chaos within the walls of a meticulously designed, 1920s-era room. Holes, hidden cabinets and Dutch indie rockers Alamo Race Track — whose suits and makeup match the wallpaper, rendering them nearly invisible — make for memorable theatrics.
