Showing with Rosalind Crisp
Rosalind Crisp‘s practice questions the hegemony of dance training, the set pathways and patterns inscribed in a dancer‘s body that hold the artist in the past. Her body is marked by years of deconstructing the lexicon of contemporary dance, and by her ongoing physical critique of dance‘s sedimentation as a museum of learnt moves.
In this first stage of “Live feed” Crisp invites a small group of dancers, who are experienced in her approach, to interrogate the history of her method in their dancing bodies, to reflect on the layers of tools and their autonomy with the practice, as it constantly evolves. Premier in February 2018.
