Crisp & Wiget

Showing by Rosalind Crisp, Bo Wiget
In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2015 / Open Spaces#2-2015

Rosalind Crisp & Bo Wiget continue to mine the commonalities and disso- nances between their practices, in an open studio setting. Both artists slide between playing their whole instrument and unraveling it into separate and minute pieces. Their collaboration tugs at the question of foreground and background rather than accompaniment in dance or music.

Beyond analogy, Crisp’s movement is astonishing in its sheer otherness, ... the standard syntax of dance erased. It’s magical.... www.realtimearts.ne

Konzept und Performance: Rosalind Crisp (Tanz), Bo Wiget (Cello) Dank an Improvisation Xchange Berlin 2014.

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
