BODY of SOUND
Join an adventure into unmapped ground for voice-movement. Enter the cellular tonal field through vibrational rhythms. Open to sensory warm-ups and restorative presence. Liven to insightful finds that surprise and embrace your fun-loving elf. Respond authentically to stimulating image-sound-language prompts. As we dive into new skillsets, we stir the soundbody and its yearnings, stories, memories, and intentions. We explore individually, with partners, and in the circle. What unfolds? A true gathering of voice-movement vignettes, gateways to personal balance, horizon mind, and performance reach. Beth is available for individual sessions by appt. during her time in NYC. 732.778.3696

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.

Movement Research Studies Project: Podcast for “Dance and the Occupy Movement,” January 25, 2012.

The podcast for the Movement Research Studies Project titled “Dance and the Occupy Movement” is now available to listen to online at http://traffic.libsyn.com/movementresearch/2012.1.25_dance_and_OWS_FINAL.mp3. You can also subscribe to Movement Research podcasts on iTunes.

Dance and the Occupy Movement
Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics
January 25, 2012.

Organized by: Abigail Levine
Panelists: Barbara Browning, Paloma McGregor, Clarinda Mac Low, Edisa Weeks, and Daniel Lang-Levitsky

“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

Participants in this Movement Research Studies Project discussed the following questions in an open conversation about the Occupy Wall Street political movement. 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?

Studies Project is an artist-curated series of panel discussions, performances, and/or other formats that focus on provocative and timely issues of aesthetics and philosophy in the intersection of dance and social politics, confronting and instigated by the dance and performance community.

Curatorial Approaches to Presenting Time Based Art
Gibney Dance Center
January 18, 2012

Moderated by Sam Miller (Founder, ICPP and President, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council).
Panelists: Doryun Chong (Faculty, ICPP and Curator, MoMA) Judy Hussie-Taylor (Faculty, ICPP and Executive Director, Danspace Project), Jaamil Kosoko (Student, ICPP and Artist based in Philadelphia), and Ben Pryor (Student, ICPP and Curator/Producer based in New York).

Faculty and students from the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance (or the ICPP) at Wesleyan University engaged in a discussion about curatorial approaches to presenting time-based art. Founded in 2010, the ICPP brings together artists, curators, scholars, presenters and cultural leaders for an intensive, nine-month, low-residency academic program with instructors from Wesleyan, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Danspace Project, and the Walker Art Center.

Studies Project is an artist-curated series of panel discussions, performances, and/or other formats that focus on provocative and timely issues of aesthetics and philosophy in the intersection of dance and social politics, confronting and instigated by the dance and performance community.
