Join Berlin-based artist and current Goethe at LUX Resident, Liz Rosenfeld for an intense, physical workshop that aims to share a working practice that is central to her research. She describes this methodology (learned from dancers and choreographers Sigal Zouk and Jared Gradinger) as ‘a beautiful experience in emotional threshold crossing, togetherness and collectivity’. Her practice utilises film, video and live performance to convey a sense of past and future histories.
Rosenfeld is invested in concepts of how history can be queered and experienced through the moment and ways in which it is lived and remembered. She explores how we identify ourselves with in/out community and social poly-relationship configurations.
Workshop participants will collaborate and support one another to laugh for 1.5 hours, cry for 1.5 hours, and sit in silence for 1.5 hours. This will be followed by a group discussion about the temporality of collectivity, endurance, inner manifestations of self, and how this practice can enable participants to feel ‘seen’ and ‘unseen’.
This workshop is a safe space for queer LGBTQI, non-binary/non-gender conforming identified people. Everyone is welcome, but please come with this in mind.
