Auspicious Arts Projects (Australia)
In Crisp & Wiget, Australian choreographer/dancer Rosalind Crisp and Berlin-based Swiss composer/musician Bo Wiget invite the audience into an intimate communion of two fundamental forms of expression - dance and music. Drawing on the commonalities and dissonances in their practices, they delve into and slide between playing their entire instrument (cello or body) and unraveling it into separate and minute pieces. The dialogue between them stretches and skews as their visceral responses to our collapsing planet saturate their playing.
Rosalind Crisp is one of Australia’s most established dance artists. Over 30 years she has created a substantial body of original dance work, responding to numerous commissions, and fostering cultural exchange links between Europe and Australia. From 2004 to 2012 Rosalind was the choreographic associate of the Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson in Paris. The Atelier managed & toured her company of French dancers. She is also supported by Tanzfabrik Berlin and the choreographic centres of France and Australia. She is a recipient of many grants and awards, including the prestigious Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et Lettres (Dame of the arts) from France. She is an honorary fellow of the University of Melbourne and holds a Masters by Research from the University of Western Sydney.
The foundation of her work is her ongoing studio research practice. Her extensive development of self-choreographing tools enable dance artists to become conscious of their embodied histories and to sift attention through any part of their bodies. For her choreographic thought and dance method Rosalind is invited around the world to facilitate artistic inquiry, teach, mentor, and perform her solo and company works. In her current projects, the body absorbs the ongoing ecological genocide that is occuring in Australia. Her personal experience of the rapid environmental degradation in her region compels her as an artist to enact change. (Australia has the highest extinction rate in the world with less than 7% of its old forests remaining). www.omeodance.com
