FEMALE UTILITIES#1-#5

We live in a world of things. Partly we do not function without them, partly it is a sham dependence. If we dedicate ourselves to these things, we rediscover our relationship, both positive and negative. What role do these things play in a female life, how are we determined by them? What do they say about women in society and what roles do we give them or let them press us into role models. Two dancers explore the boundaries between dependence, status and necessities. Like flashes of lightning, the miniatures are shown in 10-minute performances at different locations and the respective object is examined critically, comically and stimulatingly.
