    The performance-duo Sööt/Zeyringer has researched the archive of the Wiener Festwochen to examine the way in which women have been represented in the programme texts from 1951 to the present day. ‘Women who kill’, ‘Women who are mothers’ and ‘Women who leave’ are the categories the duo explores throughout this performance. Their subjective collection brings the usual and unusual roles of women into the spotlight. By adding a layer of their own thoughts, they turn their research into a humorous and poetic reflection on what is remembered.

    Women who kill and other categories is one of four works commissioned on the 70-year history of the Wiener Festwochen, for which the festival opened up its archives for research purposes. Inspired by a piece of Festwochen history, local artists are to present one sketch for the stage each, on four consecutive evenings. Artistic explorations of history will be created using various resources such as music, language, stage design, and performance.

    The performance is part of MITTEN am Abend, a four-day series that combines lectures, performances and music into a highly diverse programme.

      Under the name Sööt/Zeyringer, artists Tina Sööt and Dorothea Zeyringer operate at the interface between visual arts, dance, and theatre. Their performances address personal and sociologically relevant issues in ways that are both poetic and humorous. In their most recent works, they explored female anger and documented the forgotten history of female slapstick comedians.
