Coproduction "STAFF" by Ingrid Berger Myhre
STAFF is Ingrid Berger Myhre and Andreea David in their first choreographic mission together. STAFF is its own employer as well as employee. STAFF is about patenting and claiming the ownership of ones own activity, despite the degree of competence. STAFF recycles its questions and educates itself. STAFF investigates complex concepts with simple tools. STAFF names what we cannot put our finger on, as well as what defines itself. STAFF is unemployed up until the moment their labour is being appreciated. When this eventually happens, the work justifies itself as art, and the hierarchy of value dissolves.
STAFF is a choreography existing in the future. We are its resources. Our job is not to create it, but rather to render it visible. Its not about creativity, its all about archaeology.
