Production Details / Press Releases
In her solo work, choreographer and dancer Rosalind Masson explores questions about the formation of self. If our selves are partly composed of a myriad of experiential imprints, what is the context that creates and/or determines those imprints? Using the body as a site of conflict between outer and inner space, she explores the no-man’s lands between print and imprint, vessel and void, form and content, which compose our human lives. She does this in an attempt to give voice to those impressions which tend to be negated, suppressed or exploited in our anthropocentric world and political landscape.
Rosalind Masson has been dancing, choreographing and teaching professionally for over 13 years in the UK, USA and on mainland Europe. She graduated from LCDS in 2006 and thereafter worked as a freelancer based in Glasgow, but working all over Scotland. In 2008 she completed a Masters Degree from DJCAD in Media Arts. In 2010, she began producing her own choreographic work and has created seven works for stage and gallery spaces as well as multiple works for screen. Between 2012 and 2013, she was Dance Development Officer at Ceòlas in the Outer Hebrides and through support from Dance North is continuing to develop the work she began there. Since 2014, Rosalind works in Berlin with laborgras co-creating and performing in various productions of laborgras. In 2016 she moved to Görlitz, Saxony with her partner and young daughter where they are developing a space for visual art, movement research and contemporary performance.
