Vlatka Hovat - This Here and That There

Vlatka is getting ready for her eight-hour performance This Here and That There at HKDW in Berlin, this Friday. I am helping her prepare which means for the most part I am sitting in the sun and watching her. Sometimes, with the stop watch on my phone, I have to time how long it takes for her to shift the 50 chairs into a new arrangement. The tech guy is great but he’s reluctant to believe that she wants to move the chairs all around the building on her own – he has someone that can help her. Vlatka says no; her shifting the chairs is the piece. He says OK, but he adds that there’s someone scheduled to be there – so its really OK for her to change her mind.
