Duet - Satz 1, 2, 3 et 4 - Conversations between Antye Greie (aka AGF) and Annie Abrahams


…we explicitly challenge one another. We push each other towards new terrains, and into unknown, unrehearsed actions. We did not aim to produce an intimate encounter for this work, but the fact that we enter unknown realms makes it intimate because we cannot control the image of ourselves that we broadcast to the public.
Annie Abrahams on "A Meeting is a Meeting is a Meeting" in Allergic to Utopias, interview for Digimag 58, October 2010 by Maria Chatzichristodoulou.

Performance: Angry Women take 3 & 4 with Anne Laforet, Annie Abrahams, Antye Greie, Bérénice Belpaire, Hedva Eltanani, Hortense Gauthier, Ienke Kastelein, Jule Chateauvert, Laurence Moletta, Laurie Bellanca, Lucille Calmel, Martina Ruhsam, Olga P Massanet, Pascale Barret and Simona Polvani

After two performances where 24 women of different nationalities, using their mother tongue, said their anger in front of their webcams at home until there was none left, the next step in the Angry Women research project is a series of two sessions of exactly 12 minutes. The limited time, the experience of the first performance and the fact that this time the ladies will use a single language per performance (One performance will be in English, the other in French), will make this a completely different experiment concerned female anger and networked collaboration and group dynamics.

The first Angry Women performances are now shown as an installation in Training for a Better World at the CRAC in Sète.
