JUSTUS NEUMANN & JOHN BOLTON

With a fast car slowing him down and a wealth of things to be buried under, an old man discards everything but his spirit

Award winning* writer & performer of Alzheimer Symphony, Justus Neumann is back with his new solo show A Snowman in the Desert. A black comedy about a rich man who disillusioned with society decides to part from his wealth and live on the street.  He trades his Ferrari for an old rusty bike, and his wardrobe for a pile of plastic bags.  He finds this absolutely liberating and it fills him with great joy.

“Justus Neumann’s work is vigorous, subversive and tragically funny. Even while watching it, I knew I would never forget its impact on my body and mind.”  Alzheimer Symphony – RealTime Arts Review
