S 07 / Undoing the body

Rosalind Crisp

In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2015 / Open Spaces#2-2015

These sessions will focus on breath, weight, sensation and beginnings - the emergent processes of movement. Rosalind’s method involves un-doing the body from fixed pathways, un-holding tension, and developing the sensorial and imaginative capacity to initiate from any part of the body at any time.

Rosalind Crisp is one of Australia's foremost dance artists. In 2016 France awarded her a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres (Dame of the Arts). Rosalind founded the Omeo Dance studio - home to experimental dance in Sydney (1996-2004). Invited to Paris in 2003, she became the first choreographic associate of Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson (2004-2012). For over thirty years Rosalind has been developing a radical physical critique of dance, through dancing. The foundation of her practice is her consistent solo studio research and her long-term collaborations with, amongst others: Celine Debyser, Max Fossati, Andrew Morrish, Bo Wiget, and dance scholars Isabelle Ginot and Susan Leigh Foster. In 2014, in acknowledgment of her influence on many generations of Australian dancers, the University of Melbourne – VCA made her an Honorary Fellow. www.omeodance.com
Beyond analogy, Crisp’s movement is astonishing in its sheer otherness, ... the standard syntax of dance is erased. It’s magical... RealTime
