Sometimes I would go up close to a painting so that I would see how the canvas shapes the paint that dried on it. It’s not always possible of course but I would still do it. Just to check.
“FLUFF” is a weave of passing movements and concrete material, looking for the inbetween and not quite yet. An entanglement of intimate gestures that tie a dance together through slowness (but persistent). Forms appear and are emptied out again a bit like becoming one’s own sculpture park. “FLUFF” is constantly shifting and time is stretched out until it gets holes.
In March 2019 “FLUFF” will be presented at Movement Research at the Judson Church in New York.
Emmilou Rößling (1991, Berlin) is a choreographer and performer. She studied dance and theatre in London and Dublin and holds an MA in Choreography from JLU Gießen. Her work evolves around questions concerning representation and perception, searching for a performance mode beyond the spectacular and always striving towards some form of camouflage. Recent pieces include Water Cooler Chat (2018), CASCADE (2017), Zegnaj Olimpio (2017) and Talk.Talk (2015) presented in different venues such as Goshka Macuga Studio London, Mousonturm FFM, Sophiensaele Berlin, Scena Robocza Poznan, Frankfurter Kunstverein and Palais de la Porte Dorée Paris among others. She was recipient of the DanceWeb scholarship in 2017 and selected for PAP Berlin’s three year Mentoring Program with Alice Chauchat. emmilouroessling.com
