(Un)Domesticated Bodies: Live Feed

Performance · Premiere by Rosalind Crisp
In the frame of Open Spaces#1-2018

A performance with deliberately frayed edges. The working process is allowed to spill over into the ‘show’ and the messy bits that may have preferred to be discarded are invited in, to tug and heckle and throw light on the pristine heart of the piece. For »Live feed« Rosalind Crisp has invited a core group of four dancers who have many years of experience with her method, and 20 others, familiar with her work, join them on stage. »Live feed« celebrates Crisp's long association with Tanzfabrik and her ongoing engagement with many Berlin-based dancers.

Rosalind Crisp

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), and Tanzfabrik has worked in partnership with Rosalind’s company Omeo Dance for many years. 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
