Traffic

From a stretching out of choreographic material in space and time, in “Traffic” Rosalind Crisp creates a dramatic intensity, resolutely at the heart of the dance, playing on the relationships with sound and light. Several variations on the same central choreographic phrase follow one another, each deformed in turn, honed by the three performers. All are solos which reveal different levels at which they can be read through the accumulated memory of the dances.

Crisp, Rosalind

Australian choreographer and dancer, Rosalind Crisp trained in classical and contemporary dance at the Victorian Ballet School, Melbourne Australia, and in Contact Improvisation, release work and Body-mind centering® at the European Dance Development Centre, the Netherlands. In 1992 and 1993, she worked with different choreographers in Belgium (R. de Herdt, A. Baervoets, E. Raeves) and in Canada (P. Bingham, C. Fischer-Credo, H. Meller).

In 1996, Rosalind established the Omeo Dance Studio in Sydney, place of residence for her research and site for the development of a community of dance artists in Sydney. She choreographed many works there, including in 1999, Accumulation 1-40, a work for 24 performers. She also initiated artistic exchanges such as BerlinXchange and Franco-Omeo-Exchange, and co-curated two editions of the international dance festival, Antistatic (1997 and 1999). Recipient of the Women and Arts Fellowship of the New South Wales government, she also received a “Mo” award for best female dancer of the year in 1996 and a 2-year choreographic fellowship from the Dance Fund of the Australia Council for the Arts (2000-2001).

Invited to France in 2002 by Michel Caserta, director of the Biennale nationale de danse du Val-de-Marne, she worked between Australia and France from 2003 to 2005, establishing her company Rosalind Crisp/Association, Omeo Dance in Paris in 2004. In 2005, in Sydney, she choreographed and danced a duet with the pianist Nigel Kellaway and created dance – a piece of research, with Lizzie Thomson, Joanna Pollitt, Olivia Millard. The same year in France, she launched d a n s e , project of research and creation in collaboration with researcher Isabelle Ginot. This project has generated numerous pieces and events : d a n s e, a video work created at Le Fresnoy in 2005 in collaboration with Eric Pellet, d a n s e (1), a solo created with the collaboration of Isabelle Ginot in 2006; sur les traces du wombat, a site specific project for 6 dancers, commissioned by the Park of Chamarande in 2005; d a n s e (4), quartet premiered in JUNE EVENTS 2008 – festival of the Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson, d a n s e lab, research workshop based on the d a n s e practice. Regularly hosted by the Biennale nationale de danse du Val-de-Marne, she is also consistently supported by, amongst others, Mains d'œuvres, the Centre national de la danse Pantin, Centre chorégraphique national de Roubaix Nord Pas-de-Calais, Condition Publique Roubaix, Tanzfabrik Berlin, Performance Space Sydney and Dancehouse Melbourne.

Her encounter with Carolyn Carlson has been decisive for the d a n s e project. In 2004, she became associated artist of the Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson. She has run a regular informal performance event there (les Crocodiles from 2006 to 2008 and now les Courbatus), which invites the public to encounter her research as well as the experimentations of other artists whom she invites (Pascale Tardiff, Michel Thouseau…).

Parallel to the d a n s e project, research, productions, touring and teaching, Rosalind Crisp maintains a regular practice of artistic exchange with other artists from different fields of practice, in particular Andreas Müller, Andrew Morrish, LaborGras… She also accepts commissions from other companies, such as the German ballet Vorpommern in Greifswald in 2007, and European structures such as Trinity Laban Centre in London where she created, in 2007, a piece for 21 dancers and in 2009 a piece for 13 dancers. In 2008/2009, she was guest professor for the BA pilot project in dance at the Universität der Kunste Berlin, co-directed by Boris Charmatz, Gisela Müller and Franz Anton Cramer. There she created a piece for 3 dancers : 36 movements for the arms and legs.

Rosalind teaches at the Centre national de la danse Paris, the Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson, the Centre Chorégraphique National de Grenoble, Tanzfabrik and LaborGras Berlin, Greenwich Dance Agency, Independentdance and Trinity Laban in London, Victorian College of the Arts and Dancehouse Melbourne, Critical Path Sydney.
