After Krisztina de Châtel worked with garbagemen in Zooi and with firemen in Fire!, in ÚT (OET) she finds inspiration in the strenuous job of road pavers.

ÚT (OET), Hungarian for street, brings together three elements: the job of the road paver, dance and visual art. Krisztina de Châtel and Wouter Klein Velderman use the endless repetitive movements of the road pavers and the large quantities of paving stones they use as starting points for ÚT (OET).

…recognisably a De Châtel production, all about resistance, perseverance and the battle against the elements, as a metaphor for personal development. (Trouw)

That she got the street pavers onto the stage deserves deep respect – and then to top it all, the gentlemen steal the show. (Theaterkrant)

Rarely seen street pavers move so beautifully in slow motion… (Parool)
