We are presenting our short performance “Never Name the Shelf” at 17. Salzburger Performance Tage in the frame of Kontraste – Die Lange Nacht des Tanzes
08. April, 19:00
Ulrike-Gschwandtner-Straße 5 – 5020 Salzburg
In Never Name the Shelf, Tiina Sööt and Dorothea Zeyringer examine a notion of work which does not comply with the desire for a concrete result. The two of them observe the working process of assembling furniture with the utmost concentration and in the process shift the focus from the real aim of the procedure – the completed object – toward the sequences of movement for assembly. Each hand movement is translated into linguistic instructions and makes the proximity between work and worker clearly noticeable. A choreographic work sequence that revises the relationship between production and product.
Concept and Performance: Tiina Sööt, Dorothea Zeyringer
A production of Sööt/Zeyringer, supported by Estonian Culture Endowment.
