Concrete, bricks, chains, wigs and leather. In an apparatus whose pomp seems picked out of a dungeon, Simone Aughterlony and Jen Rosenblit, accompanied by the performer Teresa Vittucci and the musicians Miguel Gutierrez and Colin Self, maintain a relationship with subtle ties. Precarious equilibriums and constant readjustments give way to an expanded horizon, by encouraging practices ordinarily considered as disruptive. In a performance that looks like a construction site, Simone Aughterlony and Jen Rosenblit dissect the current forms of feminist politics and their utopias, offering to the audience the experience of a completely inclusive space.

Working mainly in the fields of dance and performance, Simone Aughterlony (1977) is an independent artist based in Zürich and Berlin. She uses performance as a constructing exercise where she explores the realm of desire with her collaborators, between domination and temptation. Her choreographic pieces play with representation and its saturation, tinkering with the phenomenology of misreading and the absurd. Her recent collaboration with Hahn Rowe and Antonija Livingstone, Supernatural (2015), toured extensively in Europe and the United States.
Jen Rosenblit makes performance concerning ideas, architectures and bodies locating the impossibilities of togetherness. Her recent works Clap Hands (2016) and Swivel Spot (2017) have led her to working inside seemingly impossible spaces coming from research on unity. Winner of the 2014 New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for Emerging Choreographer, she has collaborated with artists including Young Jean Lee, Ryan McNamara, Yvonne Meier, Sasa Asentic, A.K. Burns and Miguel Gutierrez. Her collaboration with Simone Aughterlony, Everything Fits In The Room, (2017) is currently on tour. She lives and works in New York and Berlin.
