PROSODIC BODY Workshop: Choreoprosodia (the fusion of movement and prosody)
These six workshops focus on the sonic properties of language exploring the correspondences between energy centers, hormonal secretion, seed movements, sonic harmony, and emotional and neurological impact. Spending time with each of the different phoneme-harmonic-compositions developed for the Phoneme Choir, we will use a ’scientific methodology’ to differentiate and name how each affects individuals and inform us of their healing and performative properties.

Morning Class with Joanna Kotze Cancelled January 23

Unfortunately the ice and fog have stuck Joanna in another state. Believe us, and her, that she would much rather be here teaching! She’ll definitely be here to teach on Wednesday morning. We will be canceling class on Monday morning, but hope to see you tomorrow night at Judson, and in class every other day this week!

Tools for Dance Improvisation

Every joint of our body has its range of movement, there are countless possible combinations. The body contains a great practical knowledge far beyond what the mind is capable of processing, resulting in an ever-changing, fluid sense of orientation that can serve as a sensor for potential movement. Through (group) improvisation with one or more partners, exchanging information through touch, we will take advantage of this phenomenon to create forms, rhythms, movement qualities more sophisticated than our minds could invent. This event is part of International Dance Dialogues (IDD), created and curated by Janet Panetta.

Wednesday January 25. Studies Project: Dance and the Occupy Movement
7:30pm. Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics. 20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor.
FREE
Organized by Abigail Levine
“Exploring an expanded notion of choreography and how it is related to our social and political organization and discovery of ourselves as individuals working within a temporary collective… circling and questioning around ideas of a moving community.” –Movement Research Festival Spring 2011 brochure “Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.”
–Declaration of the Occupation, NYC General Assembly

What are the points of contact between experimental, contemporary dance and the Occupy Movement? As spatial and embodied practice? As social investigation and organization? As improvisation and movement? As agents of change? How do and might these moving communities interact? How do we approach (public and private) space in New York City? Barbara Browning, Paloma McGregor, Clarinda Mac Low, Edisa Weeks, and Daniel Lang-Levitsky open a conversation about this creative political moment.

Wednesday January 25. Open Performance.
8pm. A.R.T./New York South Oxford Space.
Featuring work by Lauren Kearns, Athena Kokoronis, Heather Doyle, Clyde Forth
Moderated by Strauss Bourque-LaFrance, MR 2011 Artist-in-Residence
