>>I’m in duke’s prison…
Killed all the squid things in the bottom to see if I can grab some humanities…
But there’s two in the back that struck me oddly,
I walked up…. and they’re crying. I feel bad.
Anyone know why they’re crying?
Seems so bizarre… poor lil guys<<
CASCADE is a hideout place on stage – a greenhouse for a dance that’s moving around ever so slowly without going anywhere in particular. Like a plant that’s using our perception for photosynthesis. Images are constantly growing and decaying in front of us but nothing ever really changes in this choreographic arboretum unless we want it to. If we look long enough things will get blurry or maybe the light is just fading out (again). In Cascade choreography is turning into a camouflage, exploiting the vulnerability of our visual perception and at the same time uncovering something that wasn’t there before.
EMMILOU RÖSSLING (born in Berlin) studied dance and theatre in London and Dublin and Choreography in Gießen. Her work evolves around questions concerning representation and perception, in search of a performance mode beyond the spectacular and always striving towards some form of camouflage.
