Sunday Process Lab with Molly  Lieber and Eleanor Smith
Sunday, September 21
5:00 pm-8:00 pm $5
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway
RSVP Here

Sunday Process Labs are a series of three-hour, low-cost sessions on Sunday evenings, providing an opportunity for a dynamic exchange amongst peers in a lab-type setting. Sessions are facilitated by movement-based artists who will share their individual creative practices and process.

This lab explores finding things of value to us as dancers and choreographers through a variety of improvisational scores based on the duet form, with some concentration on tactile interaction with the space and each other. We will look at improvisation as a private act in a performative setting and as a public act in a private setting, and on the duet form as a meeting point of these two realms, due to its propensity for both intimacy and expression.

Town Hall 2014

An email from Development Manager Diana Crum to the Movement Research Artist Advisory Council

On 8/19/14 4:10 PM, “diana crum”  wrote:

Dear AAC –

The TOWN HALL is coming. Here’s a proposal … in the past, some of you have expressed interest in mimicking the format of our AAC meeting discussions in the Town Hall. What if each of you picked out one or two items from past meeting minutes? We could put a table in Eden’s and invite everyone to sit at the table. Each of you could read an item from the minutes as an anonymous comment (i.e. you’d read something that is not necessarily your idea). This would bring in the idea of performance … you’d be performing past conversations. Attendees could pick up the conversation where you leave off. So it would also open up your discussions to the greater public. And you can all bring your ideas to the table; we don’t have to limit the conversation to one topic. What do you think?
