Solo Practice Lab with Rosalind Crisp

Rosalind’s work proposes an engagement with the condition of one’s body and its flesh, weight, breath, sensations, edges, contents,… as primary material for dancing. She offers concrete ways to guide this physical matter into dancing by joining it with compositional tools and imaginative/fictive frameworks.

Cultivating receptivity to images of one’s physicality seated in sensation, anchors the flow of choreographic decision-making in the body, and proposes intimate modes of performing. Rosalind’s research practice supports professional dance artists to guide themselves and to take pleasure in the challenges of working alone.

For over forty years, Australian choreographer/dancer Rosalind Crisp has engaged in a rigorous critique of dancing. She has produced numerous solo and group works, informed by her experimental engagement with the body. From 2004 to 2013 her company was based in Paris where she was Associate Artist of the Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson. Her works are presented throughout Europe and Australia where she is also sought after for her teaching methodology. In 2015 the French Ministry of Culture awarded Rosalind a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Letters. In 2020, with Andrew Morrish, she established the Orbost Studio for Dance Research (Australia), hosting an national and international artist-in-residence program.
