Reckless Sleepers: A String Section

  • Performance

Five women. Five chairs. Five saws. 

Five women, each with a handsaw and chair, engage in a slow dance with destruction as they saw the legs off the chairs. As they labour, elegance, dignity and sophistication give way to absurdity as the pull of gravity takes over.

Live and pre-recorded music by Alistair MacDonald.

Please note, this performance is part of a wider DanceLive event featuring additional works.

A String Section was made with the support of INTEATRO Creative Residency and is supported by Arts Council England and the Flemish Government.
