S-03 / Pulling Whool Over Eyes
In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2020 - Update coming 5.6.20 ||
In this workshop we will look at the connections between textile making and choreography, exploring different fabrics, felts and weaves and the philosophical implications of the single fibre’s relation to a larger structure. What can we learn from textiles in terms of craft, technique, structure and compo- sition and how can this knowledge be transferred to the dancing body? A weave, for example, follows a regular pattern and is precisely delimited, while felt is a supple, solid product, which means no cutting of threads, no braiding, just tangling of fibres joined by walking. If a weave relates to a classically set composition of phrases (i.e. ABC, CBA, BAC) then how would a felted composition come into place, where each phrase would be contingent to the next?
In the frame of "Down To Earth“ Emmilou Rößling invites all to participate in the creation of a collective and public Felt work.
Emmilou Rößling is a dancer and choreographer based in Berlin. Her work evolves around questions concerning representation and perception, searching for a performance mode beyond the specta-cular, striving towards different forms of camouflage. The formation of identity and visibility functions as context for her research into processes of determination and camouflage. Recent pieces include FLUFF (2019) Water Cooler Chat (WT) (2018), CASCADE (2017), Zegnaj Olimpio (2017) and Talk.Talk (2015) presented in different venues such as Uferstudios Berlin, Arsenic Lausanne, Mousonturm FFM, Sophiensaele Berlin, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Arsenic Lausanne and Palais de la Porte Dorée Paris. Emmilou works in different constellations with Antonia Baehr, Valérie Castan, Ivana Müller, Lilach Livne, Rūta Junevičiūtė, Mette Edvardsen, Tom Engels, Xavier Le Roy and others. In 2017 she was recipient of the DanceWeb scholarship and started PAP Berlin’s three year Mentoring Program with Alice Chauchat. She studied dance and performance in London and Choreography in Gießen and Amsterdam. www.emmilouroessling.com
