Sayaka and Jenny are walking through the desert. They are very thirsty. Jenny kills Sayaka, then she turns into Sayaka’s dog.
In Tableau Doublé two dancers alter the old parlor game of tableau vivants, in which images are recreated by real people to then be interpreted by the viewers. The multitude of copyable images and the increase of the repertoire by photographs and film sequences enable the dancers to create new images employing only minor bodily changes, thereby prolonging the moment of recognition.
"With a soft touch and gentle irony, the Hamburg-based choreographer forces her audience to concentrate, to enter into a dialog with her subtle body images that she casually throws out, poses, brushes into the room. (…) Beyer challenges time and tries our patience amidst the permanent bombardment of colorful pictures so that we may learn to see again, to really look at something. This crystal-clear example of conceptual work committed to the visual arts is based on great dance talent that is never overtly touted – its mysterious fascination stems from the dancers’ consistent restraint."Klaus Witzeling, Jahrbuch Tanz, 2008
