More on Rosalind's Residency
Rosalind Crisp will return to Dance Limerick for a period of experimentation in a co-mentoring relationship with Mary Wycherley, building on their exchange initiated by Mary in 2018. In this framework Rosalind will pursue her development of DIRtywork, a solo performance event derived from her group project DIRt (Dance In Regional disaster zones). DIRt explores how dance & collaborative arts practice might embody, understand and respond to the unfolding environmental crisis in Australia, and connect to local, national and international communities.
Rosalind Crisp is one of Australia's most innovative and mature artists. Over 30 years she has created a substantial body of original dance work and a method of choreographic improvisation. In 1996 she established the Omeo Dance studio, Sydney, home to experimental dance for ten years. Invited to Paris in 2003, she became the first choreographic associate of Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson. The Atelier managed and toured her company work for ten years (2004 - 2012). In 2016 the French Ministry of Culture awarded her a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres (Dame of the Arts). Rosalind tours extensively throughout Europe and Australia, performing, collaborating, teaching and creating works for other companies. She holds a Masters by research from the University of Western Sydney and in 2014, in acknowledgment of her influence on many generations of Australian dancers, the University of Melbourne made her an Honorary Fellow.
'Beyond analogy, Crisp’s movement is astonishing in its sheer otherness...the standard syntax of dance is erased. It’s magical...'
- Keith Gallasch, RealTime
Through a combination of performance platforms, residency opportunities, master classes, talks and lectures, Dance Limerick will advocate for artistic dialogue and exchange. In collaboration with dance artists across a range of practices, Dance Limerick will promote the creation of new and innovative work and will devise programmes of access, engagement and participation for the wider public.
Based at the premises of the former Daghdha Dance Company, Dance Limerick houses offices and a fully equipped studio space along with a separate performance venue known as the Daghda Space
