The Fraternity

Dance Performance · Premiere by Emmilou Rößling
In the frame of Open Spaces - How to get in Touch with…

there is something stubborn and awkward about felt, that carries and facilities this dance. about it being the oldest textile in the world. and about the felt’s time being always now, like a teenage punk - it has no future and no past neither.
the woven fabric on the other hand knows time how we know it, it knows about the past, the present and the future. it knows about saving plans and photo books. unlike the felt it knows about anticipation, reminiscence and regret.
In THE FRATERNITY three women come together in an idle search of suspending time in which dance becomes a smokescreen for an experience that is more like the felt and less like the woven fabric. They offer a texture that one can rest upon a little, that comes with no expectations except for the time that is spent together.

Emmilou Rößling

Emmilou Rößling’s work evolves around questions of representation and perception, often exploring different forms of camouflage, and using different media, including dance, performance, textiles, and sculpture, with an interest in occupying zones of indeterminacy. Her recent works, including THE FRATERNITY (2020), FLUFF (2019), WATER COOLER CHAT (2018), have been presented in venues such as Judson Church NYC, Sophiensaele Berlin, Arsenic Lausanne, Beursschouwburg Brussels, Mousonturm FFM and Frankfurter Kunstverein. Emmilou studied choreography in Gießen and at the Amsterdam University of the Arts and fine arts at the Städelschule Frankfurt.  www.emmilouroessling.com
