A stage space bathed in green-bluish light. One body rests its arms on its drawn knees, holding its left wrist with its right hand, head hanging and looking down. A second body lies lasciviously on the right side, looking at the right rear corner. A third body, on the monitor, bends slightly to the right, one hand on its chest, the other slowly circling its wrist. A fourth body stands in the center of the room. Synchronously, they open their arms to the sides. A smile slowly appears on their faces. Their mouths widen into large holes. The singing of a choir resounds.

In ROSE LA ROSE the choreographer duo Rykena/Jüngst together with the performers Amelia Cavallo and Tian Rotteveel dive into the obscure and at the same time erotic world of show culture and spectacle. They reveal their subversive potentials and pay homage to the in-between, the time before and after revelation, before and after seduction, before and after climax. The multidisciplinary team opens up imaginative spaces in which clichéd notions of erotic bodies are questioned and rewritten.

Through the artistic use of audio description by audiodescriptor Ursina Tossi, which translates visual content into language, the sighted and non-sighted performers intertwine visual and auditory spaces of perception. In a parallel analogue-digital working process between Amelia Cavallo in London and the other performers in Hamburg, they interrogate the (un)visible through the (un)spoken and deliberately create gaps in perception in which the non-visible is made audible and vice versa. The visual and auditory surfaces combine through the voices and bodies of the performers to form a structure of interwoven narratives and interpretations of hybrid eroticism. Bodies and voices disappear, distort, direct, question, challenge.

Following the video premiere on Thu-25 Feb, there will be an online audience talk at 8:30 pm, in which you can actively participate via Zoom, or as a viewer via YouTube. More information here.

Feedback and questions before or after the event are warmly welcome by e-mail to Examples:

Image description

Two bodies from above bathed in bluish-bronze light, on a soft flokati carpet. They are wearing transparent tracksuits, their skin color is white, they are barefoot. The person on the left rests their arms on their drawn knees, holds their left wrist with their right hand. The head falls between the legs. The person next to them lies on their right side. With the bent legs crossed and leaning on their hands, they look forward to the right - beyond the picture. They touch the other with the tips of their feet. One remains, the other seems to leave the place in the next moment. Long dark hair, no hair, black mesh on skin.

Carolin Jüngst & Lisa Rykena have been working as an artistic duo between the cities of Munich and Hamburg since 2016. In their dance productions they roam through strip clubs, 1920s vaudeville theaters, Ovid's Metamorphoses or queer comic conventions and let mermaids, she hulks, expressive arias, velvet stages and marble down jackets collide. Their work engages queerfeminist, intersectional, and ableist body discourses and the transformation of normative categorization of bodies. For this purpose, they draw on classical, mythological as well as pop-cultural materials and create new figures, hybrid forms and grotesque embodiments with the aim of dissolving stereotypical, clichéd and heteronormative (gender) attributions.
