Born in London and now based in Berlin, Crispin is an artist and researcher working with performance, music and text. His physical practice challenges the assumed fixed relation of the musical score to its composer, director, performer or audience. As a researcher he is interested in the idea of the copy in performance and its relation to invisible labour.

Crispin read undergraduate music at Durham University and is currently on the MA Solo/Dance/Authorship programme at the Inter-University Centre of Dance (HZT) and University of the Arts (UdK) Berlin. He has presented work at theatres, galleries and education spaces in the Europe and elsewhere; recent highlights include Barbican Pit Theatre, Live Art Development Agency, V&A Museum, China Academy of Arts and Pornceptual Berlin. Crispin also works as a freelance director and assistant director in opera and has been a Staff Director with English National Opera since 2018.

Crispin speaks English and German.
