Emmilou Rößling is a choreographer and performer. 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.

Emmilou works in different constellations with Antonia Baehr, Valérie Castan, Ivana Müller, Tom Engels, Quast&Knoblich and others. Born in Berlin, she studied dance and theater in London and Dublin and Choreography in Gießen. In 2017 she was recipient of the DanceWeb scholarship and started PAP Berlin’s three year Mentoring Program with Alice Chauchat. 


 

 

„When all the lights in the empty theater are lit, a white sheet with the word ‚FIN’ comes down from above. The end! Applause! In this last image of an empty theater, in which lights are switched on only to emphasize the emptiness even more, there is something unbearably sentimental - but in the face of current political changes and terrifying cultural policy there is also a sinister element in it. I might be abusing my subjective perspective here however. After all, the last inventory is not a goodbye to the the building Olimpia - nobody is going to break or destroy it (for now). The stage is still working. Duncan, Krezel and Rößling perfectly show that each end gives a chance for a new beginning. I would like to add: and vice versa.“
