Les Courbatus

Courbatus - a window on choreographic practice -
free public event by company Rosalind Crisp/Omeo Dance at the Atelier de Paris - Carolyn Carlson

Rosalind Crisp's work as a choreographer is fundamentally based in ongoing movement research practice. Throughout the ten years in her Sydney studio (Omeo Dance) she nurtured this practice alongside her teaching, making and performing. Since 2005, in Europe and Australia, her research has followed a particular line of exploration, namely, the  d a n s e  project.
In the framework of her residency as an associate artist of the Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson, she facilitates the Courbatus. These are periods of research, exchange and reflection between artists of different practices, over one or more weeks in a space/time away from productions. At the end, there is a public showing.

Les Courbatus follow in the footsteps of les Crocodiles. From 2006 to 2008, at the Atelier de Paris – Carolyn  Carlson, les Crocodiles were a space apart for dance before it is presented in a theatre and for work that is intentionally made for small and informal audiences. Once a month, Rosalind Crisp invited an audience to see her evolving research in dance and that of other artists who wished to present and exchange their work in an informal context.
With les Courbatus, she facilitates research, reflection and exchange of practice in performance improvisation.
