Inside the room, dungeon-esque encounters and ordinary domestic lingering exercise a politic that comes with care taking, danger and amnesia. Aughterlony and Rosenblit alongside Gutierrez and Self on sound, maintain a complicated relationship to order that encourages cracks and leaks inside architectures for gathering. A free-standing wall, a roaming kitchen island and decaying bodies are part of a disruptive ecology that needs constant adjustment. Rhythmic sorcery drives the effort despite the un-governability of ingredients. Is this a construction site or a cooking show? The room offers an expanded horizon, no longer obliged to rid oneself of the things that supposedly suspend progress. 


Simone Aughterlonyis an independent artist based in Zurich and Berlin, working predominantly in dance and performance and visual art contexts. Simone has received the KFV funding from Stadt Zürich, Kanton Zürich and Prohelvetia between the years 2006 to 2020. Simone was the recipient of the Stadt Zürich recognition prize in 2011 and the prizewinner for the BAK award for best performer in 2015. Simone regularly teachers at academic institutions such as ZHdK and Manufacture in Lausanne as well devising and facilitating elaborate laboratory formats and frames for sharing and producing knowledge. 

Jen Rosenblit (1983. USA) makes performances based in Berlin after many years in New York City surrounding architectures, bodies and ideas concerned with problems that arise inside of agendas for togetherness. Rosenblits works lean toward the uncanny and maintenance of care, locating ways of being together amidst (un) familiar and impossible contradictions.Rosenblit looks for meaning as it emerges between things and toward an unwinding or possible collapse rather than world building methods. Rosenblit is a 2018 Guggenheim Fellow, a recipient of a 2014 New York Dance and Performance BessieAward, a 2023 La Becque(Vevey, CH) artist in residence and has collaborated with artists including Simone Aughterlony, Miguel Gutierrez, A.K.Burns and Philipp Gehmacher. Rosenblits newest work, <ElseWhere Rhapsody> is a 2023 co-production of Tanzfabrik Berlin and Tanzquartier Wien, offering distraction as a guide to speak toward the illegibility of desire and forgetfulness as a way to shift toward something else, away from the damaging repetition.
