Description

Work Work is a performance that combines different genres of art. The piece strives for a community built by working together. The team will experiment with dance, performance, sound, video art and woodwork. Work Work raises the work itself as a research subject, displayed in front of the public. During the residency, a sauna will be built on stage. The structure of the performance fluctuates between construction and other noisy, moving and spatial elements.

Our team of dance artists, sound designers and media artists work collectively, building an ecologically and mentally sustainable world. Our team objects to the assumptions about productivity and market value associated with artistic work and art objects. With our work, we set out to defend the artist's right to work on various topics without the need for financial returns. We want to bring out the joy of working together, of crafting and of effort.
