lonely lonely

In lonely lonely Sööt/Zeyringer investigates the tension between desired and undesired loneliness, the need for human warmth and the simultaneous need for privacy. Using dry humour, subtle irony and cardboard boxes, the two performers create a rhythmic-choreographic dialogue on being lonesome and being together, while in the midst of minimalist and accurate execution, moments of surprise and poetry flare up.

The artist duo Tiina Sööt and Dorothea Zeyringer deals with performance at the intersection of visual arts and dance. In their works, the two artists try to find beauty, poetry, wit and absurdity in every-day objects, acts and language. They have been presented at imagetanz 2013, Palais Kabelwerk, Raw Matters and VBKÖ, among others. Sööt/Zeyringer received TURBO Residency at the 2013 ImPulsTanz festival, as well as residencies at the Tanz*Hotel Vienna in 2014 and at the Transeuropa Work Residency Programme for 2015.
