Sinopsis:  Performance video “Tetralogy” by Roos Hoffmann, made during PAS | 39, “Creaking Wooden Fish”, Venice, Italy. With special thanks to BBBJohannes Deimling and Kirsten Heshusius. A tetralogy (from Greek τετρα – -tetra, “four” and -λογία  -logia, “discourse”) is a compound work that is made up of four distinct works. The name comes from the Attictheater, in which a tetralogy was a group of three tragedies followed by a satyr play, all by one author, to be played in one sitting. This performance video was made during PAS|39, “Creaking Wooden Fish”. It is based on a series of short life performances. PAS|39 was organized in the framework of the Learning Program of the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK
