•       The little guy with his mustache, his bowler hat and his bamboo cane is world-famous. But who is the man behind this figure? Mario Schröder wondered the same thing when choreographing Chaplin.

•       “Schröder’s ballet, Chaplin is a grand, marvelous dream of a man in search of himself, in search of a language to deliver a direct message; for the indirect ones, he finds body language and thus his tone of truth.” –Tanznetz
