In Angry Hour the performance duo Sööt/Zeyringer approaches female anger in their usual minimalist style.They look at women in mythology, history, pop culture and everyday life who express anger: Serena Williams destroying her tennis racket after an argument with the referee, Martha Rosler using kitchen utensils in a threatening way in Semiotics of the Kitchen, or Carrie in the eponymous horror classic whose suppressed anger culminates in brutal revenge. Tiina Sööt and Dorothea Zeyringer examine and
deconstruct instances of female anger, they uncover the potential for empowerment as well as the destructive and self-destructive elements that anger can contain.
Angry Hour is a collection of 28 forms of anger that together form an unstoppable storm of outrage.
