Her works have been shown at brut Wien, Tanzquartier Wien, Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava Tallinn, Kunstraum Niederoesterreich, National Dance Center Bucharest and Schauspiel Köln to name a few. The performance “lonely lonely” was awarded by the Austrian Federal Chancellery and the Stockholm Fringe Festival.

Project description:

ANGRY HOUR

A performative encyclopedia of female outbursts that uses rage as an empowerment strategy.

In our society, women are still expected to remain friendly and keep their anger to themselves. However, there are countless female role models in mythology, history, pop culture and everyday life who have expressed their anger in an empowering way. Sööt/Zeyringer take these women into the spotlight: In minimalist scenarios they raise their voices and give free rein to profitable and destructive forms of anger and indignation. With dry humour, a rage archive is created that makes visible the manifold ways of being angry.

Angry Hour is supported by Kulturabteilung der Stadt Wien.
