Tiina Sööt and Dorothea Zeyringer at Image Tanz festival at Brut Wien.
18. and 19. March 2013
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 and Dorothea Zeyringer
