Labs/Workshops

 

 

Rosalind's workshops offers practical tools to pay attention to the act of dancing and concrete ways of generating and perceiving movement. Things to do with what you notice. As a practice this work can deflect the dancer from their habitual movement pathways, enlarge their range of movement choices, and place them more solidly in the present. These are primary sources for movement that empower the dancer as creative agent.

    2nd International Advanced Lab - the present moment in dance
    ORBOST (Australie)
    Orbost, far eastern Victoria
    Contact: Peter Fraser - peterlfraser@gmail.com

    Rosalind's current research, and the springboard for this lab, brings attention to the continual flow of information emanating from the body; ways to oscillate between sensation, imagination and rigorous choreographic choices; and processes to saturate the body with a focus compelling the dancer to go beyond the 'rules'. This inquiry implies a close relationship between anatomical visualisation and fictitious imaginings and suggests that in the porosity between sensation and movement, feelings and images that concern the artist in the world may be pulled through the dancing body.

    Workshop - fundamental tools for a practice in choreographic improvisation
    BERLIN
    LaborGras - www.laborgras.com
    For more than twenty-five years Rosalind Crisp has been deconstructing her dancing body, evolving a field of choreographic principles and tools that enable a dance artist to produce movement from any part of her body, in any direction, at any speed or effort, at any time. Her tools guide the attention of the dancer to her dancing, to the continual flow of physical, spatial and sensory information for decision-making in the present moment. The body is approached by undoing it from held tension and unquestioned pathways. Breath, weight and sensation are prioritised. Then a range of practical tools is explored for sourcing movement from touch, texture, imagination and every part of the dancer's body - parts that are anatomically segmented or fictitiously separated and sensed. Attention is detached from presenting moves and is embedded in the continual emergence of material in a shared and porous relationship with the dancer's audience.

Open to dance artists, musicians, writers, other artists, producers, managers, critics,... those who want to know more about this artist's practice.
