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 is a dancer and choreographer based in Berlin. Her work evolves around questions concerning representation and perception, searching for a performance mode beyond the spectacular, 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 THE FRATERNITY (2020), 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.
