Biography

Born in Omeo, Australia, Rosalind Crisp founded the Omeo Dance studio in 1996 - the Sydney home of experimental dance for ten years. Invited to Paris by Michel Caserta in 2003, in 2004 she became the first choreographic associate of Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson. The Atelier managed and toured her French company for ten years. In 2016 the French Ministry of Culture awarded her a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres (Dame of the Arts). 

 
For over thirty years Rosalind has engaged in a radical physical critique of dance, through dancing. The foundation of her work is her consistent studio practice and long-term collaborations with, amongst others: dancers Céline Debyser, Max Fossati, Lizzie Thomson, Andrew Morrish, Helen Herbertson, musicians Bo Wiget & Hansueli Tischhauer, multi-media artist Vic McEwan, dance scholars Isabelle Ginot & Susan Leigh Foster. In 2014, in acknowledgment of her influence on many generations of Australian dancers, the University of Melbourne – VCA made her an Honorary Fellow. Rosalind lives and works between Europe and Australia.
