IBT 13 International Festival of Performance: A String Section

A symphony for saw and chair.

Five empty wooden chairs stand in a row. The audience wait. Five women walk in carrying handsaws. They each stand beside a chair, bow and take a seat.

They start to saw into the legs of the chairs upon which they sit. Each has her own rhythm, her own style. The piece ebbs and flows, rises and falls. The audience is free to come and go, though it's pleasing to stay. They finish up and leave. Only the lopsided chairs, bits of wood and the sawdust remain.
