K.J. Holmes, Brooklyn, thanks Luke George of Melbourne, Lori Goldston of Seattle and Devika Wickremesinghe of Brooklyn, for embarking on her newest journey of dance and research after 3 decades of teaching, performing and traveling the inner and outer worlds to discover what is left to discover. She is a 2012-14 Artist-In-Residence at Movement Research, teaches at NYU/ETW and Lang/New School, and is a lifetime member of Movement Research.

a Natural dance
Choreography and sound by Jen Rosenblit
Performance by Justin Cabrillos, Jen Rosenblit, and Addys Gonzalez
This work has been supported in part by a residency at Mount Tremper Arts as well as the money that Jen makes from her hourly work.

Jen Rosenblit has been working on making dances in NYC since 2005. Rosenblit is from rural Maine, which feels important in regards to understanding time passing. In NYC she teaches improvisation and performance independently, through CLASSCLASSCLASS and through Movement Research. Jen has been a teaching artist at Bowdoin College, Hampshire College, Hollins University and University of Massachusetts Amherst and has done lecture demonstrations at both Yale and Harvard on the improvisational and performative body. Rosenblit has worked extensively with performer Addys Gonzalez over the past ten years, was a 2009 Fresh Tracks Artist and a recipient of the 2012 Grant to Artists from the Foundation of Contemporary Arts. Her recent works, That Sick Sound, Everlast and So Badly, When Them, and In Mouth have located a space for being with audience in a contemplative theatricality. Rosenblit is currently interested in an improvisational approach to choreographic thought and ways of structuring bodies as they fall out of relation aesthetically and spiritually, locating more potent ways of being together. www.bottomheavies.blogspot.com
