aRzu Saglam & Maria Lapistö

This is a restaurant
We are not here to give you what you need. We don’t move our mouths. And you don’t move your mouth. The voices move. You want to follow them. But they are not really here. Nothing you really need is here.
‘This is a restaurant’ is a work about hypothetical desires, suggestive needs, imagined tenderness and traitorous wishes that only offer dissatisfaction. This is a monologue of a waiter that can’t wait to wait on you, serve your ear and secure the service, free of charge (free entrance)


Antonia Barnett-McIntosh & Emma Bennett
« Accent »
« the superficial front-facing way of putting it out there »

Accent, began as an attempt to understand our differing techniques of pronunciation by imitating one another’s accents (Antonia is from New Zealand, Emma from the UK). It became at once an enactment and discussion of our tactics, techniques and habits of speech. We listened to ourselves as we spoke, then listened again to the tapes, noticing anew the musicality of our shared hesitations, songful agreements and tetchy misunderstandings.
