Since 2007, Navaridas & Deutinger have been developing performances combining text and movement vocabulary in multiple ways, constantly having as a background the idea of how meaning is manipulated via rhetoric and gesture.

In On the Other Hand, they work with language textbook sentences and two life-sized puppets, which they touch, move, treat and mistreat with the help of long sticks. The relation between the human performers and their inanimate counterparts is characterized by active manipulation and passive resistance. The puppets´ subjection to manipulation - in movement and in stillness - in combination with the texts and the live music lends them a contradictory strength: They seem impassive yet needy, indifferent yet demanding, vulnerable, distressed and threatened, yet indestructible.
