OurGoods.org and Upcoming Resource-Sharing Event

For the last two years, I’ve been working on OurGoods, a barter network for creative people. After a lot of hard work, we went live last week! You can see what we’re all about at OurGoods.org. We created it to be a place where independent artists, including dancemakers, could find help and resources to get their projects done without cash.

I’ll be blogging this month about resource-sharing as a model for getting our work done, as well as about questions of how we value our work and how that relates to the larger economy.

For starters, though, I’d like to invite you to a Movement Research-sponsored event:

Celebrating its 20th Anniversary, the Movement Research Performance Journal fosters the exploration and evolution of written and graphic languages that contemplate current issues of dance and performance. We take this opportunity to examine the journal’s history and relevance, how it operates as a vehicle for dynamic exchange, as a form of documentation, and as an extension of artistic practice and output.

Update from Critical Correspondence, 10.27

Hi Readers,

In the meantime, please check out Lindsey Drury’s response to Ishmael Houston Jones, Dennis Cooper, and Chris Cochrane’s THEM, as well as Ish’s thoughtful response to what she wrote.

We are currently in the midst of an exciting exchange between US and Romanian artists and writers, and CC will continue to host writings about this exchange on the site. Visit us here to learn more about the inner workings of this exchange.

Skinner Releasing Technique
Think, feel, play. The Skinner Releasing Technique is a movement-based and imagery-based process of discovery. SRT enables one to discover their own mechanical logic, intuitive awareness, and personal imagistic realities. The intended long term result of SRT is a mature person who is a self-motivated and self-propelled critical thinker. The SRT pedagogy is highly structured and rigorous and yet the classes unravel within a sense of ease and mystery. Partner graphics, structured improvisations, and guided imagery allow the student to find clarity within the physical self. In addition to becoming better movers and dancers, we happen upon empathy which in turn can lead to compassion.
