Improvisation as a response to Crisis
We are delighted to invite Rosalind Crisp (AUS) and Clint Lutes (US/FR) to explore the practice of improvisation as part of our Spring/Summer professional development programme. As we continue to face uncertainty in our sector, these workshops will offer an opportunity for liveness, connection and collective creativity, despite the challenges of being remote.
Rosalind Crisp’s methodology offers practical ways to guide one’s own dancing and to embrace the challenge of working alone. In this short workshop she will introduce some key tools and processes for self-choreographing. The session will include dancing, watching and discussion.
I think of the body as both sink - absorbing and accumulating experience into its tissue, and source - a reservoir of fluctuating sensations, flavours, humors, potentials. Through the artist’s attention to her bodily materiality coupled with her gamut of compositional tools, these sensations continually seed opportunities for dancing.
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
