Rosalind Goldberg (NO/SE)

Rosalind Goldberg is a choreographer based in Oslo. She is currently a research fellow at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in Oslo with the Ph.D. project Choreography as a meaning-generating aggregate.

Rosalind’s work explores processes of change and is characterized by a physical and conceptual approach to choreography, where the entanglement of the two directs the process. Central in her work is the question of what we can expect from the body - to what extent the body can change, and what sides of the body we hide away from, examined through a social, economic, cultural, and environmental perspective. She is interested in the unknown, uncomfortable, leaking, fantastic sides of bodily life and explores the murky water where biology and notions of the body are rubbing against each other. Drawing on inspiration from neurobiology, philosophy on plasticity, new materialism, and notions around the unknown, she creates practices to challenge the habitual in the dancer as a method to stir around with the body’s representation on stage.

Rosalind's latest production, DARK DYNAMITE, premiered at Henie Onstad Art Center in Norway in 2022. Previous works are, The Field (2020), Rut (2018), Immunsystemet (2017), Jump with me! (2016), MIT (2013), Fake Somatic Practice (2011).

Rosalind’s work has recently been performed at Impulstanz Festival in Vienna, Tanz Im August in Berlin, Schauspielhaus Bochum, Sophiensaele in Berlin, Schauspielhaus Chemnitz, Uferstudios in Berlin, TanzFabrik Berlin, Dansens Hus in Stockholm, Inkonst in Malmö, Dansens Hus in Oslo, BIT-Teatergarasjen in Bergen, Henie Onstad Art Center, Rosendal Teater in Trondheim, Black Box Teater in Oslo, RAS – Regional Arean for Samtidsdans, Weld in Stockholm, Skogen in Gothenburg, et al.
