Solutions for Problems
work in progress by Sööt/ZeyringerSolutions for Problems deals with the process of finding creative solutions to situations that appear to have no solution. Sööt/Zeyringer explore not only how to solve problems and overcome obstacles but also examine other strategies to relate to an obstacle.

Sööt/Zeyringer (Dorothea Zeyringer and Tiina Sööt) is an artist duo that collaborates since 2012. The artist duo Tiina Sööt and Dorothea Zeyringer deals with performance at the intersection of visual arts and dance. In their works, the two artists try to find beauty, poetry, wit and absurdity in every-day objects, acts and language. They have been presented at imagetanz 2013 and 2015 (brut Wien), Wir lassen sie einfach angelehnt (VBKÖ), fresh – Tanztage Braunschweig, In-Formation Performative Month (Künstlerhaus Passagegalerie) and Ve.sch (Vienna), among others.
