STAFF is Ingrid Berger Myhre and Andreea David in their first choreographic mission.
STAFF is its own employer as well as employee.
STAFF is about patenting and claiming the ownership of one’s own activity, despite the degree of competence. STAFF recycles its questions and educates itself.
STAFF is not innovative but is happy to state the obvious. STAFF names what we cannot put our finger on, as well as what defines itself. For it is by naming the evident that it is truly brought into being.
STAFF plays with the artist as hired in her own universe. STAFF is unemployed up until the moment their labour is being appreciated. When this eventually happens, the work justifies itself in the name of art and the hierarchy of value and purpose dissolves.

STAFF was born in Montpellier and together with DUET (created in collaboration with Adriana Gheorghe) represents one of her first own works.
