Before their new performance More or Less will celebrate its world premiere at brut in April, performance duo Sööt/Zeyringer allow participants of the workshop Temporary Collections glimpses into their artistic practice. Tiina Sööt and Dorothea Zeyringer create rhythmic, poetic structures by using every-day movement, language and objects. The workshop’s subject will be collecting. The participants will join Sööt/Zeyringer in exploring how personal collections arise and how to transform research into poetic, humorous images. Objects telling private stories become the starting point for performative exercises. The workshop analyses how personal and collective decisions change the meaning, functionality and performative potential of those objects. Individually, in pairs and in groups, short performances will be created based on a number of tasks and subsequently shared with the rest of the group.
Artists Tiina Sööt and Dorothea Zeyringer have been working together in Vienna since 2012. At the intersection of visual art, dance and theatre, their performances discuss both societally relevant and personal issues in a poetic, humorous manner. Their work has been presented at such venues as brut Wien, Tanzquartier Wien, Sophiensæle Berlin, Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava Tallinn, Schauspiel Köln, Kunstraum Niederoesterreich and the National Dance Center Bucharest. Sööt/Zeyringer are winners of a TURBO Residency at the ImPulsTanz festival, the Federal Chancellor’s Office’s Performing Arts Award and the Stockholm Fringe’s Young Stoff Award. They were Resident Artists of Fleetstreet Hamburg in 2018 and part of Freischwimmen – Plattform für Performance und Theater in 2019.
