TOOLS – a hand job

2017 Bückling & Kröger

„Every time when an organ – or a function – frees itself from an old obligation, it invents something new. When the paw or hand is freed from the function of support of walking, it changes; it becomes the grasping organ and, finally reforms as a tool“ (Michel Serres).

My work ‘Hand Tool Interface’ was the starting point for the duet “TOOLS – a handjob” , in order to deal with both the evolutionary liberties that go with the upright walk as well as with physical activities.

Concept, choreography and performance: Florian Bücking and Raisa Kröger
Room: Fabian Reimann
