Rosalind is a dancer choreographer and teacher based between Scotland and Germany. Catalyst worked with Rosalind and her collaborator Jack Webb to produce Quartet (2013 / 14).
This unique collaboration was a meeting of minds and practices born from a serendipitous encounter. The work was conceived and mentored by Daniel Squire, performer, teacher, curator and former dancer with Merce Cunningham Dance Company.
The movement content in Rosalind’s work was gathered during a series of journeys in Europe and North America: impressions of urban landscapes and people in transit, collected over the past two years. The sonic landscape for the work is composed and performed live by Jan Hendrickse. Together Jan and Rosalind work to find ways to connect movement and sound production, creating new work that traverses both mediums.
'She brings a curving shapeliness to his writhing spasms where limbs thrash out with erupting energies.' Mary Brennan, The Herald
