Paula ROSOLEN graduated from the University for Music and Performing Arts in Frankfurt. She holds a MA in Choreography and Performance from the Justus-Liebig University in Gießen.
Paula ROSOLEN works with the goal of making visible the inherent dance present in popular culture and everyday life. These subjects are always studied from a distinct point of view, and are usually set in a foreign context.
It is in this spirit that “Aerobics! – A Ballett in 3 Acts” was born, a German-French coproduction awarded first prize at Parisian competition Danse Élargie and invited to the Tanzplattform Germany. Puppets (2016) is her latest work, inspired by the movements of puppeteers.
Her work has been shown at deSingel Internationale Kunstcampus in Antwerp, at Theaterfestival Basel, at Théâtre de la Ville, at Musée de la Danse in Rennes, at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Frankfurt, at European Festival for Contemporary Dance Poland, at Centro Cultural de la Cooperación in Buenos Aires, Sophienaelen Berlin, Frankfurt LAB, Akademie der Künste Berlin, ZKM Karlsruhe, PACT Zollverein, Museum Wiesbaden, Kondenz Festival Belgrad, Kampnagel Hamburg.
