• Place BRONKS

5 women, all in little black dresses, sitting on 5 chairs.
Elegant like the string section in a symphony orchestra, but equipped with saws instead of violin and bow.
Their mission is rather simple: to saw off the legs underneath them without falling over. Sitting on the chair, lying stretched out, wrapped around the backrest, head down, legs split. The bodies are twisted in order to find the optimal working position. The task is tough, the chair legs put up a struggle, but the women are so dedicated and so ready for battle. The rhythmic sound of the saw blade into wood foreshadows destruction. Sweat is mixed with sawdust, the muscles burn, and they desperately fight to keep up the facade and balance when the chair legs break and the chairs tilt over. We shiver when the saw slips, and we laugh when they lose their balance and fall to the ground with a bang. We are all mesmerised as we follow every single movement, each cut with the saw, while we wait in excitement for the ultimate and inevitable self-destruction
