‘The Tiniest Act’ is a performance based on the book ‘The Passion According To G.H’, by Clarice Lispector.
‘The Tiniest Act’ is a performance based on the book ‘The Passion According To G.H’, by Clarice Lispector. The stream of consciousness of an unknown female character and the poetics of the author’s text is translated within the artist’s own practice; movement of words are a source for physical explorations.
Tamir decided to work with two female performers of different generations, to interpret one life, one flow, Instead of creating the piece with one character. The work seeks to investigate the body in its vulnerable possibilities, such as inexpressiveness and depersonalisation.
In the research residency at SHIFFT Utrecht, Tamir is exploring how to stage the story of “The Passion according to G.H.” by Clarice Lispector in his own way. He has staged this story before, at the time with two male performers. He sees this trajectory as an opportunity to create a second chapter.
Tamir Eting (Israel, 1990) is an interdisciplinary choreographer who works at the intersection of dance, philosophy, installation and performance. He danced with Batsheva Ensemble Dance Company for three years and graduated from the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in Amsterdam in 2020, from where he participated in a residency at Sense Lab at Concordia University in Montreal. In addition to his own practice, he collaborates with and performs for other artists. Tamir is a certified Gaga teacher and works with actors, movers and dance companies in the Netherlands, Russia, Italy, Israel and Germany, among others.
The Tiniest Act is part of the SHIFFT artist in residence program, in which (young) makers get the chance to research, show and / or produce new work. These makers have the opportunity to test their work against audiences through open studios or public presentations. For each residence, the format is tailor-made to help the creators as best as possible in their artistic search.
For The Tiniest Act, SHIFFT organises open studio presentations in collaboration with Utrecht University and meetings for the makers with the professional field.
