The destruction of the natural environment in East Gippsland is felt deeply by Internationally renowned dancer/choreographer Rosalind Crisp. She spends time in decimated forests, and this is a constant driver of her artistic practice.

Prior to COVID19 Rosalind regularly performed across Europe. She has presented in France, Germany, Finland, the UK, Switzerland, Estonia, Poland, Sweden, Norway, Australia. In 2015 the French Ministry of Culture awarded Rosalind a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres (Dame of the Arts).

Rosalind's artistic piece for this exhibition Emergency - Species Loss is a poignant dance guided by the unfolding environmental crisis in East Gippsland and across Australia.
