STAFF is Ingrid Berger Myhre and Andreea David in their first choreographic mission together. STAFF is its own employer as well as employee. STAFF is about patenting and claiming the ownership of ones own activity, despite the degree of competence. STAFF recycles its questions and educates itself. STAFF investigates complex concepts with simple tools. STAFF names what we cannot put our finger on, as well as what defines itself. STAFF is unemployed up until the moment their labour is being appreciated. When this eventually happens, the work justifies itself as art, and the hierarchy of value dissolves.

STAFF is a choreography existing in the future. We are its resources. Our job is not to create it, but rather to render it visible. Its not about creativity, its all about archaeology.

Andreea David is an architect, performer and ex-follower of the ex.e.r.c.e master at CNN Montpellier. In this edition of eXplore dance festival you can see her perform in belgian choreographer Thomas Steyaert’s score#21 — method of elimination.

Ingrid Berger Myhre is a performer and choreographer, whose recent artistic encounters and influences have encouraged her investigation in finding an autonomous power of the performers body and voice, and resulted in her first independent works.
