Female Utilities #1-#5 Wehr51

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