Event description

the d a n s e project

Date: Saturday 11th December, 2021
Time: 2pm – 3:30pm
Price: Pay what you can (Temperance Hall values this event at $15)

Courtesy of the Artist is a screening and conversation series focusing on significant dance works from both the recent and not so recent past by some of our community's most celebrated artists. Caring for the ephemeral artefacts of our dance histories and herstories, to revisit a moment in time and ask what was happening for the artist and the world at that time - perhaps as a way to look at where we are now. Grab your popcorn and get cozy to watch a significant moment from our collective performance-pasts and join in a conversation with the featured artist.

Courtesy of the Artist is curated by Temperance Hall's Artistic Associate, Luke George, as part of the Care Tactics 2021-23 program of workshops, screenings, talks and artistic development. Find out more HERE.

the d a n s e project

d a n s e is a project that Rosalind Crisp developed continuously from 2005-2015 between Australia and France in collaboration with Céline Debyser, Lizzie Thomson, Max Fossati, Isabelle Ginot, Andrew Morrish, Marco Wehrspann and other French, Australian and German artists. Beginning in 2005 with d a n s e (a film a film by Eric Pellet at le Fresnoy, Tourcoing, France) and dance – a piece of research (Performance Space, Sydney with Lizzie Thomson, Joanna Pollitt, Olivia Millard), the d a n s e project continued to span 10 years and multiple works being created and performed extensively across Australia, Europe and Asia.


Rosalind Crisp currently works between East Gippsland and Europe and has recently created the Orbost Studio for Dance Research, hosting a remote regional artist-in-residence program. She trained at the Victorian Ballet School, Melbourne and the European Dance Development Centre, the Netherlands. Rosalind has also been awarded a NSW Women & Arts Fellowship (1996), a MO Award for best Australian female dancer of the year (1997), a Masters by Research from the University of Western Sydney (1998), a choreographic fellowship from the Australia Council (2000-2001) and in 2014 in recognition of her influence on a generation of Australian dancers, the University of Melbourne-VCA made her an honorary fellow.  From her first solo show in 1995, she has created a substantial body of original work and remains one of a handful of mature, consistently practicing, Australian dance artists.
