Running gag questions power and gender relations in humour – who is allowed to be funny and who laughs at whom? While looking for female role models in the history of humour, Sööt/Zeyringer deals with the slapstick comedies of the 1910s and highlights gender and humour at the time of great change in the role of women.
The performance premieres in April 2018 at brut Vienna. At the Fleetstreet residency in Hamburg Sööt/Zeyringer presents a work-in-progress showing.
Tiina Sööt and Dorothea Zeyringer work in Vienna as a duo since 2012. Their performative work is situated at the intersection of visual arts, dance and theatre and has been presented at imagetanz brut Wien, FEEDBACK festival Tanzquartier Wien, Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava Tallinn, Kunstraum Niederoesterreich and Schauspiel Köln among others.
