{Walk and listen} {personal degrowth} {poetry and humor}

Sööt/Zeyringer invites you for a walk through your own neighborhood. A walk that you can start right from your home: an area that you have strolled through a hundred times, a district that you think you know well, a route that has nothing new to discover. More or less works with what is already there, what is overlooked and what seems to be of no use. Based on research and personal stories the audio walk uncovers possibilities to refuse the cult of productivity. When effectiveness is demanded in every aspect of life, doing nothing can be an act of resistance. Through poetic images and minimal collaborative tasks More or Less seeks strategies for personal degrowth.

This poetic and humorous little story will invite you to reflect, quite personally, what it means to do less. During the walk, you will receive simple instructions and tasks that reveal the hidden value of inconspicuous things. More or Less will direct your attention to what is already there, to what has been overlooked so far and to what is apparently of no use. Based on research, personal stories and poetic experiments, this audio walk will uncover possibilities and strategies of deceleration. When efficiency and productivity is required in every area of life, doing nothing becomes an act of resistance.

Pressestimmen

"More or less is high-spirited nihilism to go."

Martin Pesl, FALTER Die Wochenzeitung

"The sloppiness that is frowned upon in every capitalist household releases new strength. Simultaneously to trends such as slow food, slow living or slow travel, Sööt/Zeyringer also plead for stepping back o, for a different way of looking at things. So More or less is – against all of Brechts wisdom – the license for romantic gawking. The landscape opens up for a four-minute play."

Margarete Affenzeller, Der Standard
