Speaking Of Which

On The Other Hand

 

 

 

The terror of normality and the normality of terror.

 

In On the Other Hand, Navaridas & Deutinger work with two life-sized puppets, which they touch, move, treat and mistreat with the help of long sticks. The relation between the human performers and their inanimate counterparts is characterized by active manipulation and passive resistance. The puppets´ subjection to manipulation – in movement and in stillness – in combination with the texts and the live music lends them a contradictory strength: They seem impassive yet needy, indifferent yet demanding, vulnerable, distressed and threatened, yet indestructible.
