Emily Roysdon: Minor Theatres + Queer Documents


"I am looking for the body, my body,
which exists outside its patriarchal
definitions. Of course that is not
possible. But who is any longer
interested in the possible?
” *

Emily Roysdon is a New York and Stockholm based artist and writer.

Her working method is interdisciplinary and based on collaboration.
Roysdon recently developed the concept "ecstatic resistance" to talk about the impossible and imaginary in politics.

She is editor and co-founder of the queer feminist journal and artist collective, LTTR and writer of lyrics for Brooklyn based band MEN.

Last week she made a new performance "I Am a Helicopter, Camera, Queen" for the Tate Live Performance Room series.
