Reckless Sleepers - A String Section

Thursday 14 February 2013, 18:30 Arnolfini
Free

A symphony for saw and chair.

Five empty wooden chairs stand in a row. We (the audience) wait. Five women walk in carrying handsaws. They each stand beside a chair, bow and take a seat.
They start to saw into the legs of the chairs that they sit on. Each has her own rhythm, her own style. The piece ebbs and flows, rises and falls. The audience is free to come and go, though it's pleasing to stay where we are. They finish up and leave. Only the lopsided chairs, bits of wood and the sawdust remain.

Part of IBT13 Opening Night.
