          Our economic system and our planetary system are now at war. Or, more accurately, our economy is at war with many forms of life on earth, including human life. What the climate needs to avoid collapse is a contraction in humanity’s use of resources; what our economic model demands to avoid collapse is unfettered expansion. Only one of these sets of rules can be changed, and it’s not the laws of nature. – Naomi Klein, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate

          Language pre-supposes community. Therefore without you, nothing I say has any meaning. – Kathy Acker

          If you ask me what I want, I'll tell you. I want everything is a work in which Rosenfeld offers her body as a potential site of movement to be stored as a future sustainable energy source. Through relationality and exchange, and with echoes of a science fiction narrative, Rosenfeld has built a choreography with a group of intimate and inspirational bodies exploring questions of the future and labour of queer relationships and desire in the face of climate change.  Even though the work’s propositions are disseminated through Rosenfeld's body, the piece challenges the futurity of individuation and the ideology of ‘the solo,' exploring the flesh in the wake of environmental decay.  This work has been formed collaboratively with a collective effort of bodies and movements merged and stored within Rosenfeld’s own. Rosenfeld is a flesh-body serving as a material root of her own methodology, and producing a systmetic rupturing of movement and dance. When we are left with only our flesh as a natural resource, how can bodies stay sustainably useful together through movement and time?

          If you ask me what I want, I'll tell you. I want everything is one of the final works in a two year creative body of research, in which Rosenfeld has been exploring and creating towards her first feature film Foxes. Through performance, short videos & films, drawings, collages and expanded cinema installations, Rosenfeld has been researching themes of queer desire, climate change, invisible genocide, and radical- positive apocalypse, which are all central themes in her upcoming film Foxes.

Rosenfeld is part of the Berlin film production collective NowMomentNow, and one of the founding members of the food- performance group foodGASM, which explores the intersection of creative labor, food, and industry.
