Rosalind Crisp

Choreographic Improvisation Workshop

Australian dancer/choreographer Rosalind Crisp will share her choreographic improvisation practice - a field of practical and concrete tools for dancing. The body is ‘prepared’ with attention to its materiality – flesh, breath, weight, sensations. Compositional parameters guide dancers to source movement from anywhere in their bodies, at any time. Crisp’s tools invite dancers to notice where movement is already occurring, before it solidifies into recognisable gesture. Patterns get undone. Her practice supports dancers to develop a broad choreographic responsiveness to how things are constantly changing in their bodies. This is fuel for guiding themselves. Crisp’s tools are constantly evolving, constituting a rigorous and recognisable model for artistic self-learning.

ABOUT Rosalind

For over thirty years Rosalind Crisp has engaged in a detailed physical critique of dance, through dancing. She has generated numerous solo and group works informed by her rigorous and experimental engagement with the body. Her performances are presented throughout Europe and Australia where she is also sought after for her teaching methodology (DOCH Stockholm, HZT Berlin, Laban London, The Place London, VCA Melbourne...)

Rosalind founded the Omeo Dance studio in Sydney in 1996 – home to experimental dance in Sydney. Invited to Paris in 2003, she became the first choreographic associate of the Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson. In 2015 France awarded her a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres (Dame of the Arts).

Rosalind currently lives and works between Europe and East Gippsland, Australia.

Beyond analogy, Crisp’s movement is astonishing in its sheer otherness, ... the standard syntax of dance is erased. It’s magical... Keith Gallasch, RealTime Arts
