Interview with Levi Gonzalez by Tess Dworman from Womanzine

Here’s an interview between Levi Gonzalez and Tess Dworman for the publication WOMANZINE.

The power of dance is that it opens things up, creates new spaces and possibilities, and is constantly shifting, like the imagination.

November 1-3 Friday-Sunday  10am-1pm
Cathy Weis Studio, 537 Broadway
$90 Full Workshop
Moving from Touch
Touch comes in many shapes and sizes. From a hand resting on a hand or arm, to a back resting against a back breathing together. We are all born knowing experientially the gift of touch. When we give touch, we receive touch in return – an exchange of information from body to body – reciprocity. Touch can draw our attention from deep inside the body to the surface, to skin, and touch can take our attention from skin to depth, addressing and integrating fundamental facets of our being and giving us information about body systems, movement qualities and thought processes, as well as opening spaces for imagination. In this workshop we will explore moving from touch.

Classes this week with…

Nia Love. Morning Class 
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10am-12pm. $14
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
Class starts with across the floor rhythmic gaits that investigate independence in the body. Stacking sequential rhythmic patterns build on cardio and core work that emphasizes a feminine-derived energy where conical movement attaches to the base of the spine and radiates up through the core and out to the extremities. Center floor exercises focus on skeletal-muscular motion; rotations, isolations, and weight shifts explore a more grounded approach. The incorporation of a more crisp sensibility to an urban approach that partners up with African, postmodern, Butoh, funk and blues sensibilities. The goal: to break down inhibitions, fine tune modern techniques, yet approach dance with a sense of abandonment!

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

Using the morning technique class structure as a model, this class will focus on dance as a physical, conceptual, and experiential practice, with an emphasis on cultivating presence inside of the forms. Class often begins with imagery and gentle preparation culled from various body-based somatic modalities that access our awareness of the organs, the skeleton, gravity, and energetic pathways through the architecture of the body and into the space. Class may also include technical exercises, choreographic structures, improvisations, and performance constructs, taking our time to engage with these materials with precision, imagination, and a thorough and informed sense of embodiment.

TUNING SCORES Laboratory – Composition, communication, and the sense of imagination
A multi-sensorial approach to the questions: what do we ‘see’ when we look at dance? what do we ‘see’ from within the dance?’ The scores offer inner and outer communication tools and practices that make apparent the ways each of us sense and make sense of movement. A playful and rigorous dialogue-in-action about space, time, movement, and the innate desire to compose our experience. Creators/Performers in any discipline (dance, music, visual art, theater, science, engineering, farming) are welcome.

Classes this week with…

rotator_Michelle+Ori
Ori Flomin. Morning Class 
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10am-12pm. $14
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
The class encourages students to increase their movement possibilities and take risks in dancing by maximizing the benefits of the warmed-up body. The warm-up moves smoothly from floor to standing with a strong focus on anatomy to strengthen connections of correct alignment with an increase of fluidity in the joints.. Dancers will develop an understanding of the connections between their body and the floor, and will learn how to use momentum and breath to explore physically-full dancing with the least amount of muscular tension. During phrase work, dancers will learn how to incorporate information from the warm-up to execute more complicated sequences.

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

We’ll look at different ways of approaching ‘dance technique’… energy systems, physical systems, architectural-object-spatial relationships, contact and non-contact partner and solo improvisations. I take my current somatic, dance, and performance interests and apply them to a movement practice. A maximally informed approach to dancing. A space of respectful, creative permission for everyone’s body. A time to really let things move in all senses of the word… in relationship with and beyond oneself.

Afternoon Classes with Jeremy Nelson.
October 14-18 Monday – Friday 12:30pm-2:30pm
Avenue C Studio, 55 Avenue C
$14 per class, Movement Research Class Cards applicable
The workshop will draw on Nelson’s 25 years of continuing study in the work of Barbara Mahler and Susan Klein, and by more recent studies in other techniques such as Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais Method® and Body-Mind Centering®. We will begin with simple exercises and stretches that encourage mobility and suppleness in the superficial muscles, establish clear connections and directions through the bones, and create a dynamic and weighted relationship with the floor. The class will also incorporate a variety of approaches including some improvisation and hands-on work in partners that help deepen our awareness and give us the opportunity to really experience some of these ideas in a physical way. We will then take our work into very simple activities and movements in order to try and integrate this new awareness into our body’s movement patterns, and then build up to phrases of movement that involve moving more fully and dynamically.

rotator_SPL_AntoniaBaehr

Sunday Process Lab with Antonia Baehr
Sunday, October 20  5-8pm
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
$5
In this workshop, Antonia Baehr proposes to share an artistic practice around the performance LAUGH. It is for all public. LAUGH is a piece about laughing as laughing. For the length of the piece Antonia Baehr explores this expression as a sovereign entity, in separation from causal baggage; jokes, tickles, narrative, humor, joy, looking at the thing itself: the sound and shape, the music, choreography and drama, the rhythm and the gesture of laughter. Comedy is not her goal, but contamination is an unavoidable by-product that sometimes contagiously trades sides of the ‘fourth wall’.

Upcoming Workshop.

Video Clips from Movement Research at the Judson Church 10.7.2013

Featuring works by Whitney V. Hunter, Epik, Lorene Bouboushian

Everything is up for grabs, nothing is sacred (work in progress)
Choreographer/director: Whitney V. Hunter
Performers: Cornei Cuffey, Ayana Evans, Whitney V. Hunter, Tara Nicolas, Sebastiani Romagnolo, Aaron R. White
Costume: Hunter in collaboration with performers
Everything….. is a consequence of process. The work and title are both elucidations on the notion of creation. Themes apparent within the work were generated through compositional explorations to specific performative actions. The work is not intended to tell a story, but to evoke narrative.
This project was made possible, in part, through The Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Jerome Foundation and the Davis/Dauray Family Fund.

Whitney V. Hunter is a NY-based interdisciplinary performance artist and independent curator from Chicago, IL. He creates and curates work for the stage, gallery, and alternative spaces, and directs his performance collective Whitney Hunter[MEDIUM]. He has worked in the companies of Martha Graham, Martha Clarke, Pearl Lang, Rod Rodgers, Pascal Rioult, Reggie Wilson, Dagmar Spain, and Kankouran West African Dance Company. Whitney has received numerous choreographic grants, including, but not limited to, Puffin Foundation Grant (2011), Harlem Stages – Fund for New Work Grant (’09), and a new work(s) commission from Thelma Hill Performing Arts Center (’08 & ’11). Whitney holds a BFA in Theatre Arts/Dance from Howard University, an MFA in New Media Arts and Performance from Long Island University where he is an adjunct professor in the dance program, and is presently a David Driskell Ph.D. Fellow in Philosophy, Art Theory and Aesthetics at Institute for the Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts (IDSVA).

Choreographer: Austin Epik
Performer: Paige Fredlund
Yvonne Rainer wrote, “ Dance is hard to see.”
Agreed. However,
This work is a dance that writes, “dance is hard to write.”
This work is a dance that sounds, “dance is hard to hear.”
This work is a dance that signs, “dance is hard to signify.”

Austin Epik is a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults). He lives and works in Toronto. This is his first “modern dance,” though his previous work in dance provides access to music for the deaf through a form of “Sign Language Dancing” he developed in a project called Epik Silence. You might find him at austinepik@yahoo.com

Progressing Toward Nothing: Doin’ it Big, Judson Style
Featuring: Lorene and Kaia, again
It’s all brand new, it’s all very old.
Judson, we think you need a party, so here we are baby!

Lorene Bouboushian has performed many things at many different places, like JACK. These performances have involved journals, pie, and feelings. She teaches fun workshops involving voice, movement, and “performance.” She taught some in Mexico! She has a Vimeo and all, but she’d rather you just talk to her or email her through her outdated site: lorenebouboushian.com. Kaia Gilje is good at pie (you see the connection? It’s not real.), pizza, hair-braiding, and knitting. She lives in Bay Ridge, can you imagine? With her feminist aunt, who knew. She is as fierce as a hamster in a hay bale. She performs a lot and is usually at the Woods Cooperative being a hamster for someone. She needs a place to live, hit her up!

$75 Full workshop, $40 Saturday, $14 per class (Tue-Wed-Thu)
Authentic Movement
A witness and a mover agree to enter a mystery. The mover, with eyes closed, self-directed, explores impulses in the present moment. The witness with eyes open watches the movement and holds the intention to support the mover’s experience. Personal imagery, sensation, emotion and the ineffable emerge to consciousness with movement as the source. Authentic Movement provides a powerful context to discover meaning or non-meaning from experience and to retrieve seminal material for the artist. After moving and witnessing, a process of speaking, moving, drawing or writing recalls the experiences. The ritual has the intention of maintaining the internal efficacy of what just happened.

Joanna Kotze. Morning Class.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Edens Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

Beauty, awkwardness, form, strength, weakness. Intended to be both laboratory and class, the sessions will be time for us to delve into the design of the body and its potential within a given moment. Through stretch and placement, technique studies, movement phrases and open practices, habits will be discovered, challenged, and seen through a new lens. A concentration on the forces through the legs will lead to finding more range in separate body parts and ways to use weight into the floor. My hope is for you to feel present and challenged and to leave class with a few answers and more questions.
