Pink Tape – Yellow Tape – Black Tape – Repeat!
Performance

Open Mind Festival, Toihaus Theater, November 2017




WUK performing arts, January 2018


photos: Eva Würdinger

A strip of adhesive tape is a singular thing, a second one next to it confirms the first one.
A third one could indicate the beginning of a pattern. Patterns are created by repetition.
The performance Pink Tape – Yellow Tape – Black Tape – Repeat! focuses on the processes
of creation and discard of patterns, visualising them with the aid of adhesive tape.
In the black box, affixed dots and line structures build up between audience and performers
only to be transformed in the next moment or disappear again.
In Pink Tape – Yellow Tape – Black Tape – Repeat! the live musician Elise Mory handles
musical structures and repetition processes. Acoustic overlays and multilayer loops translate
the visual patternings into sounds and thus musically "glue together" the performative
adhesive-tape works.
A foot, a head and a hand interwoven with tape. The strips interact with the bodies of the performers.
Dot structures form a social tie with the onlookers, pulling them directly into the events by an
almost affectionate application of adhesive tape. Everything happens in a measure of disorder;
no repetition is similar to another; everything in the room might have become a pattern …

In her new performance Do-Undo, artist Lisa Hinterreithner and Rotraud Kern explore the
temporary trio of audience – performer – material. What happens when conditions shift,
when one group gets the upper hand, another succumbs?
Tin foil, blankets, dictaphones, … in Do-Undo two performers and the visitors form a speculative
community; sporadic, scattered, multiplied micro-situations define the space.
Between exhibition and performance situation a space for (collective) actions, adventure,
uncharted territory appears.
As the smallest events multiply and spread, the actual event could be anywhere. Neither
spectators nor performers are able to see the “complete” performance. Do-Undo is an attempt
to set the social fabric of audience and performers in motion.

It might be windy, it will be dark – a tactile search in visual silence
A 15 minute performance loop for 15 participants

International Transdisciplinarity Conference 2017,
Kunstraum Leuphana Universität Lüneburg, September 2017



photos: Jan Mitschulat

In It might be windy it will be dark the participant's attention is turned to a non human agent:
air as a moving body. Air is visually perceived as see-through and perhaps therefore often overlooked
as a material. Yet we sense it (unusually hot/cold/moving/still/damp/dry air may catch our attention),
we move through it, we breathe it. It supports our bodies and literally holds us together. It makes up
the void between. It connects us to each other, to all other objects, places and spaces in the world,
across the most minuscule and the vastest of distances.
In this manifestation of the ongoing artistic research project ‘WIND’ visitors are invited into a space,
where streams of air touching the visitors’ body parts allow for a sensorial experience exploring the
effects of wind and its affects on humans. We are concerned with how air can produce a spatial,
choreographic composition to be felt, not seen. Purely bodydriven mechanical movement of air gives
the audience a tangible and sensual experience of wind, as we strive to shift the attention to the
state of a matter which is - with or without our human presence - present in the space.
It may become windy...

A scripted situation
Performance

Tanzquartier Wien, Studios, May 2015




photos: Nils Olger

Wait until someone throws a bag into the waste bin. Then turn the page.

A scripted situation is a performance without professional actors or dancers and without spatially
separated spectators and performers. Everyone is simultaneously a spectator and an actor.
Playing cards invite people to carry out daily activities in the room. A social choreography – a scripted
situation – develops through the translation of simple, comical or absurd instructions into spatial
actions.
It is characteristic of a social choreography that it physically incorporates the participants in an event,
so that as a group they embody a specific social (dis)order. It arises out of the awareness that social
situations are never natural, but to a certain degree are always constructed and manufactured situations.
A scripted situation not only exhibits the constructed nature of the choreographed social situation,
but also seeks to facilitate a non-hierarchical being together that establishes itself through the physical
actions in the room, so that an imaginative space can open up in which group images can be distorted,
shifted and presented.
By working with everyday objects, transient scenes, groups and images crop up. Actions and threads
of actions overlap and contradict one another. Are the objects part of the social structure? To what
extent do they already define the parameters of a specific social choreography? What happens
by coincidence and what is staged? Who is following which instructions? Is what has suddenly started –
and cannot be guided by anybody apart from the participants – an everyday occurrence or a performance?
A fictitious situation? Reality?
In the foreground of this performance is the question of how social situations are co-produced or
caused by choreographic processes. A scripted situation attempts to combine the maximum limitation
of the possibilities for action with the maximum openness of the situation. What will happen is only
decided at the moment when the participants meet? Everything follows a script and is nevertheless
completely unpredictable.

Performance series: THE CALL OF THINGS / THINGS and MEZZANIN
Performance

THINGS, Galerie 5020, March 2015




photos: Erik Hable

In their performance series THE CALL OF THINGS, THINGS, and MEZZANIN the two performance
artists Lisa Hinterreithner and Jack Hauser engage in the performativity of things, setting out from an
artistic performance as a collaborative gathering of heterogeneous elements (humans, things, organisms,
and objects).
Materials, things and objects are acting next to, and performing with the two human performers as
independent and collaborating or disturbing participants. In this sense, Hinterreithner and Hauser investigate
the possibilities of a performance model, the human-nonhuman workgroup. They spend a lot of time with
the things. They hang around and roam the rooms they selected together with the things and objects in
order to get an idea of the loitering things’ vitality. The things speak up in one way or another (the call
of things). Groups of ‘bodies’ (human and non-human) establish themselves in juxtaposition, mutually
affecting and being affected by each other. However, Hinterreithner and Hauser themselves do not become
things, but perhaps somehow thing-human. The human–nonhuman workgroups move from boiling kettles,
over wet, hot items of clothing, books, human urine, a wall clock, quick-frozen trouser legs, a vacuum
cleaner and television sets playing possum, even to dawn itself.

MEZZANIN, ImPulsTanz, Vienna International Dance Festival 2015, Odeon workshops, July, March 2015



photos: KatReynolds

What happens when people and objects engage in artistic, performative complicity? To get to
the bottom of this question, Lisa Hinterreithner and Jack Hauser explore parts of the Odeon theatre
that usually stay hidden: under the stage, in the workshops, the store-room, the depository
for costumes and props – the mezzanine. A mysterious transformation takes place there: the
objects become alive, and the living performers take on an object-like quality. Both sides
come together in their states of materiality. They become a human/non-human working group
that generates exceptional assemblages.

Automatisch Idiotisch - als ob - genau
Performance

Sommer SZENE, Salzburg, June 2014



photos: SZENE Salzburg/Bernhard Müller

"Geh in die Scule und lass die socken tanzen; gib mir deine hand damit es nicht zu regenne beginnt.
Das warten macht immer sinn. Der strohkopf ist ein druckwampier und ietatsache dass du spinnst
ist eine kleinigkeit die mich nicht kümmert ...“


Lisa Hinterreithner writes automatic texts and completes these with automatic speech, dance and
weeping. Julius Deutschbauer approaches her automatic creation like an explorer and extracts
categories from it: desperation to madness, father/mother/child to sex, dry ice to farting machines.
From this emerges, almost by itself, a show made up of attractions and performances somewhere
between the automatic and the machine-like, car-driven planchette, recorder of souls and
Werner-is-Dead keyboards. automatisch – idiotisch – als ob – genau sees itself in the first part
of the evening as a self-driven performance and in the second part as a mechanical installation to
be played by the audience.

Roaring Matters
Performance

Radhusparken, Aarhus (DK) September 2014

A park, a public area dedicated to relaxation, rest, and leisure, determines the setting for the visual
installation roaring matters.
Performance artists Lisa Hinterreithner and Rotraud Kern and visual artist Daniel Zimmermann
explore actions and movements of people inside a park and its given structures. The project questions
social codes and behaviours of relaxation and rest.
Red shining viewers are installed in the landscape. Five stereoscopic viewers, a kind of telescope,
give an insight into a different reality – a territory of new perspectives.
The spectator encounters different approaches to human bodies that gather in a park, mark a territory,
or occupy a green area in the middle of the city of Aarhus. Roaring matters proposes a community
freed from its humanity.

Open Mind Festival, November 2012

POSTERS is a continuation of the project Watch! The Poster Show. Both projects collect performances
by different performance artists who choreograph for the two-dimensional surface of a poster rather than
the stage: Compositional and choreographic action applied to a flat surface. Performance, documentation,
and archiving in one = Performance Poster. Only an empty wall is necessary for the performance, or,
as Julius Deutschbauer puts it: “Four strips of tape are enough to perform it!"
Cheeky Theatre stages are problematic spatial construction sites for contemporary art, and they eat up
lots of economic resources. A historicised, inflexible, costly framing for 21st century performing art. An
alternative: choreographing on a sheet of paper.

Posters partakes in the change of the theatre, understands itself as a choreographic departure. Posters
is a plea for choreographic acting conscious of the crisis not only of the theatre, but in the face of current
close-downs of cultural institutions all over Europe.

Shift of playing areas Choreographers shift their playing area to paper, inscribing performances on posters.
An intriguing act of overcoming thinking in movements which experiments with the special complicity
between performance and audience.

Exercising the impossible. Experimenting, acting as if; there are no limits to choreographic thinking and acting.
Gaining freedom through a change of practice.

Producing singularly in community – the poster workshop A facility for the design and production of poster
performances. It is a quick, singular fabrication that happens in a group or in being-with-others.
A lab-research-production format.

Staging of the posters and bodies in three-dimensional space – the presentation The poster workshop is
equally exhibition and performance site. Traces of the artistic process will remain in it, tools, dances, texts
and pictures; glue, scissors, the performances, the posters. The audience is invited not only to experience
the posters, but also materials of the poster workshop and live actions by the artists.

Site-specific installation at Kapuzinerberg

Sommer SZENE Salzburg, July 2011


photos: Paul Wenninger, Daniel Zimmermann

No other city has, in its center, such lush, picture-perfect natural beauty; no other city has Kapuzinerberg.
A long, steep path helps you relax and slow down. Then it takes you into the forest. Friendly and peaceful
yet mysterious, Kapuzinerberg is a place to contemplate, to hide; a secret jungle almost forgotten in the
midst of the hustle and bustle of Salzburg. There, your senses are stimulated as they take in the intersection
of different views: of the distance, of the city, of the mountains and the details of the flora.
Here You Are is an installation which expands these horizons and puts completely new views in them.
It manipulates reality, implies associations, and gives free rein to the imagination. The artists' instrument
is the telescope which allows them to create additional worlds and set free the creativity of the viewer.

Watch! The Poster Show collects performances by different artists who choreograph for the
two-dimensional surface of a poster rather than the stage. Five artists design performances in
poster format. The pieces will be exhibited together in the Salzburger Kunstverein's Cabinet
as a premiere and can then be purchased online.
Five choreographers transfer the stage to paper and inscribe performances on posters. A delightful
breakthrough in thoughts on movement takes place that experiments with an unusual complicity
between performance and onlookers.

Tree me tree
Performance

Tanzquartier Wien, Studios, January 2010



Fotos © Nils Olger

The spaces in which the actors in Tree me Tree move are multiple. Remembered, just happening
or medially constructed, in the work of the choreographers indoors and outdoors, natural and
stage space, here and there, windows and view openings, standpoints and perspectives, details
and excerpts overlap and interpenetrate. In the confrontation of choreographic and film material,
in the negotiation of presence and absence, the artists interweave experienced stories and
turn the stage into a place of ever new relationships of demarcations and connections, of attribution
and belonging.

Biography

The performance artist Lisa Hinterreithner in her works addresses bodies, materials and objects. Her performances and installations have taken place on stages, in galleries, in the woods, and on paper. Her latest performances include, e.g.,
Pink Tape – Yellow Tape – Black Tape – Repeat! (2017 Open Mind Festival, Salzburg; 2018 WUK performing arts, Vienna), where she focusses on the processes of creation and discarding of patterns, visualising them with the aid of adhesive tape.
In the performance Do-Undo (2017 Galerie 5020, Salzburg; ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival)
Lisa Hinterreithner and Rotraud Kern explore the temporary trio of audience, performer, and material.
In 2014–15 together with Jack Hauser she developed the performance series The Call of Things / Things (Tanzquartier
Wien; Galerie 5020, Salzburg; ACF London amongst others) as well as the performance Mezzanin (ImPulsTanz – Vienna International Dance Festival). Hinterreithner and Hauser engage in the performativity of things, setting out from an artistic performance as a collaborative gathering of heterogeneous elements.
In 2014 together with Martina Ruhsam she created the work A scripted situation (2015 Tanzquartier Wien and others),
a performance where there are no dedicated spectators, since all the participants are equally onlookers and performers.

From 2006 to 2008 Lisa Hinterreithner was head of the Training and Workshop Department at Tanzquartier Wien under the direction of Sigrid Gareis. In 2014 she taught Performance at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. She teaches performance and research at SEAD (Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance), at the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna and at the Danish National School for Performing Arts in Copenhagen. Since 2007 she has been curating the research platform tanzbuero together with Elfi Eberhard. Also in 2014 she did her master’s (MRes) in Performance and Creative Research
at Roehampton University/London.
