Rosalind Crisp received the 2020
Regional Arts Victoria Fellowship
to be artist-in-residence at Orbost Exhibition Centre, where she extended her DIRt (Dance In Regional disaster zones) research and presented studio showings and site specific performances throughout the year.
DIRt performances are made for local audiences in raw and damaged sites. Materials are honed through residencies as we explore ways to take this grounded, located work to other places. What influence does this have on how we treat, present and shape our materials? How can the local experience speak to the wider community?
DIRt has a mobile format, responsive to context and spaning performance, seminar, scientific information, poetic response, fact and feeling.
