Swivel Spot
Tanz / Performance

Actions of preservation and maintainance suggest something routine is about to happen. Swivel Spot is concerned with change and how we might miss the actual moment of transformation. Haunting the performance are the remains–a skeleton of logic from something that no longer applies. Two performers roam the space, mostly on their own, while a third covers everything in a thin plastic film that needs to be pierced in order to go on.

Jen Rosenblit makes performances based in Berlin after many years in New York City, surrounding architectures, bodies, text and ideas concerned with problems that arise inside of agendas for togetherness. Rosenblit’s works lean toward the uncanny, locating ways of being together amidst (un) familiar and impossible contradictions. The methodology supports an expanse of meaning as it emerges between things and moves toward an unwinding and a possible collapse. Desire and sexuality linger as reoccurring points of departure without demanding a singular aesthetic or representation. Rosenblit is a 2018 Guggenheim Fellow, a recipient of a 2014 New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award, a 2023 La Becque (Vevey, CH) artist in residence and has collaborated with artists including Simone Aughterlony, Miguel Gutierrez, A.K.Burns and Philipp Gehmacher. www.jenrosenblit.net
