Everything Fits In The Room
January 2017 Berlin Premiere District, A commission and co-production by HAU Hebbel am Ufer.
Aughterlony and Rosenblit alongside Miguel Gutierrez and Colin Self on sound, navigate feminist politics beyond manifestos. Rendering a practice of adjustment that negotiates other forms of order than disorder encourages disruptive practices by way of leaks and cracks inside architectures for gathering. Unpacking the phenomenology of Utopias solicits the polemic: the fear that all things won’t fit in the imagined dominant path. A free-standing wall offers possibilities for fixing that comes with care taking, danger, and amnesia. Rhythmic sorcery drives the effort to organize despite the un-governability of ingredients. Is this a cooking show or a construction site? The room offers an expanded horizon, no longer obliged to rid oneself of the things that supposedly suspend progress.
