Sunday May 5. Studies Project: Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice: A conversation in two parts
2:30-4:30pm
Center for Performance Research

Conceived by Amanda Loulaki and Susan Mar Landau
A Roundtable discussion with Thomas F. DeFrantz, Susan Mar Landau, Andre Lepecki and Katherine Profeta

FREE

The dramaturg as an active participant in the conceiving and making of movement based works is a relatively new and evolving phenomenon, as well as one that can be both mysterious and suspect. Conceived as a two-part event, Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice will explore both the ontology and the workings of dance dramaturgy today. Precluded by a short history on the topic, the first event will bring together a diverse group of working dramaturges to discuss their experiences and the possible implications of their role in the choreographic process. The second event, to take place in the fall, will open the conversation to include choreographers in an in depth discussion on the practice of dramaturgy.

Why I am not a painter
This is a writing workshop. It is open to anyone who wants to play with words, to see what they can do, and how. But it is made with dance-artists in mind. How do words live in time and space, whether on the stage, the page or in the mind? Critical writing, creative writing, performance texts… are they really such different creatures? Does a dancer have a particular way of approaching language? What about a writer who spends so much of her time watching dancers? So many questions. We’ll spend our time looking for answers, individually and as a group.

Classes this week with…

Asli Bulbul. Morning Class.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

Working from the body’s innate intelligence, class will start with simple awareness and coordination exercises influenced by different somatic disciplines to organize the body and prepare us for more technical movement. We will work on remembering and re-wiring organic pathways and explore alternative solutions to our habitual patterns. Class will build in physical intensity, culminating in a chance to put our experiments to the test. Sometimes this will mean phrase work and other times class will stay in a more lab/workshop-like format.

Jennifer Nugent. Morning Class.
Tuesday & Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

Using improvisational and set warm-ups, we will focus on the volume and weight inside the body and its relationship to the floor. Exercises that bring awareness to the feet, spine, and pelvic floor encourage the feeling of release in the limbs, allowing us to fall and suspend off-center, simultaneously finding a grounded flexible base of support. Using these physical tools, we will explore sensation, instinct, and the inherent musicality inside the body, phrasing. All the while dancing, we will work toward a more grounded and direct approach to movement. No Class May 7.

Wednesday April 17. Studies Project: “Pushing Boundaries.”
6:15pm
Gibney Dance Center
Conceived by Ori Flomin
With panelists Arthur Aviles, Jennifer Wright Cook, Colleen Thomas, Larissa Velez-Jackson and more
Moderated by Moira Brennan
FREE

Much value is placed on the idea of artwork that is at the cutting edge, with the words “pushing boundaries” emphasized in grants, applications and curating language. This conversation examines what might be meant by “pushing boundaries”? How important is it in the creative process and its outcome? Is the point of view of the artist different from the one of the audience when determining something as “pushing boundaries”? What assumptions or cultural contexts are assumed to establish these boundaries? Are there other ways to value contemporary work?

April 12-20. Workshop with Larissa Velez-Jackson.

Embodying and Exchanging Energy
This workshop will explore how individuals and groups embody and exchange “energy.” We will keep an open mind about how energy is present, sensed, and a source in us: inspiration, creativity, motivation, connection, collaboration, presence, emotion, spirituality – energy forms that exist in our physical and non physical experience, shaping our interactions. Guided experiences and improvisational forms bring our heightened awareness and dimensional bodies into a potent energetic state to create a supportive and collaborative environment, leading us to shared dancing, creativity, and discourse.

Rain
Choreographed & Performed by Preeti Vasudevan
Music by Ben Foskett
Rain is a developing work that explores the state of the female mind after the spirit has been crushed. Like the monsoons, the liberator of the parched earth from the heat and drought, the woman is born a free spirit full of nurture. But with the ever-increasing subjugation of her spirit and body, we force ourselves to become sky watching rain birds….Asking…Where is the rain?
Rain is in response to the rise of rape incidents in India in recent times.

Award-winning choreographer and performer, Preeti Vasudevan is a leading exponent of classical Indian dance-theater Bharatanatyam creating new provocative, contemporary theater. Original works performed by her performing arts collaborative Thresh have earned international acclaim for their fresh juxtaposition of traditional dance-theater forms from her native India with modern theories of movement and expression. Originally from Chennai, South India, Preeti now lives in New York. (www.threshdance.org)

Composition, choreography and performance by Quartet Collective (Rachel Bernsen, Melanie Maar, Abraham Gomez-Delgado, Taylor Ho Bynum)

Quartet Collective (featuring Rachel Bernsen, Melanie Maar, Abraham Gomez-Delgado, and Taylor Ho Bynum) got together to experiment with doing and undoing music and dance in performance. Performing together in various music and dance venues over the past two years, the group practices spontaneous action as a way to experience and share composition and choreography in the moment, continuously seeking a collective consciousness as well as individual presence. Scores, principles, and structures are both developed and discarded, as the search for a trans-disciplinary understanding of risk and relationship, dialogue, and intention keeps this collective on its toes and ears. Quartet Collective will give a keynote performance and talk at the Stony Brook University Philosophy and Art Conference on March 30th. Past performances include The Vision Festival, The NOT Festival, The Poetry Project at St. Marks Church, Jalopy, The BIG ROOM’s Take Your Time series and internationally in Austria, Germany, and Holland.
