About

“Hin und her/Here and there” is a sharp critical satire on a topical issue within the European space, i.e. borders and absurd bureaucratic situations faced by ordinary people; this time, it’s not about emigrants reaching Europe, but about European citizens themselves.
The action develops on a small bridge built on an equally small river, which one way or another connects two small states. This no man’s land between the two borders at the two ends of the bridge is the place where the main character, Havlicek (played by Daniel Bucher), is held captive.
Expelled from the country where he lived his entire life and having lost the right to enter the country where he was born - in both cases for purely bureaucratic reasons, Havlicek faces the possibility of spending the rest of his life on a bridge, between the two frontier crossing points.
In the society imagined by Horváth, clerks, politicians and criminals seem dominant in number. Is there room for the forbidden love between the daughter of the customs officer on the right bank and the customs officer on the other bank in this landscape full of small people? Or is this the only thing for which there still is room? Or perhaps the only thing for which there is time?
