S-03 / Pulling Whool Over Eyes

Workshop with Emmilou Rößling
In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2020 - Meeting in the Virtual!

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.
