correction

weldfilmCORRECTION consists of close readings from the novel Correction by Thomas Bernhard. The performances are about understanding and interpreting a literary work and in a wider perspective about understanding, interpreting and making corrections in life and work. In our performance we are alternately reading and actively working to knot an indigo-coloured rug in a staged room environment that includes a projection of filmed material from an empty apartment. The situation is arranged differently each occasion.

The rug is emerging with one square at a time, and it is intended to be twenty square meters, an area as large as the surface of the Hoeller garret/the Hoeller hut.

The readings from the novel Correction is not the overall focus in our performances. The readings are subordinate. The main thing is the process of interpretation and correction and the process of a new work.

Shortly about the novel:

The main character in the novel goes straight into the so-called Hoeller garret/hut, to begin sifting and arranging the literary remains of his friend Roithamer, after Roithamer’s suicide. Roithamer (also a friend of the taxidermist Hoeller) willed the literary remains to the main charater who the reader follow in his work and thoughts sifting and sorting the papers consisting of thousands of slips covered with Roithamer’s handwriting plus a bulky manuscript entitled “About Altensam and everything connected with Altensam, with special attention to the Cone”.
