(Un)Domesticated Bodies: Live feed

Showing by Rosalind Crisp
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2017

Rosalind Crisp‘s practice questions the hegemony of dance training, the set pathways and patterns inscribed in a dancer‘s body that hold the artist in the past. Her body is marked by years of deconstructing the lexicon of contemporary dance, and by her ongoing physical critique of dance‘s sedimentation as a museum of learnt moves.
In this first stage of “Live feed” Crisp invites a small group of dancers, who are experienced in her approach, to interrogate the history of her method in their dancing bodies, to reflect on the layers of tools and their autonomy with the practice, as it constantly evolves. Premier in February 2018.

Concept: Rosalind Crisp | With Sunniva Egenes, Anna Nowicka, Céline Debyser & guests | Produced by Tanzfabrik Berlin | Funded by Hauptstadtkulturfonds | The project is part of Platform East - Berlin & Eastern Europe, a platform for Australian artists and Australian-European collaborations, curated by Rosalind Crisp/Omeo Dance, assisted by the Australian Government through the Ministry for the Arts’ Catalyst - Australian Arts and Culture Fund.



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
