Jan. 20th Studies Project: The Role of Class in Current Dance Practices

Organized by MR in collaboration with Beth Gill, Lance Gries, Eva Karczag and Gwen Welliver

What role does “class” play in current dance practices? As contemporary teaching artists attempt to articulate new methods of transmitting knowledge through the body, so too are performers of contemporary dance and performance work drifting away from relying exclusively on traditional and codifiable techniques. How can we get the most out of the structures that exist and/or create new ones as we relate these models to the way people make work now? This conversation with teaching artists and practitioners will engage these seemingly intangible questions with concrete practices and proposals.

Participating speakers include:
Julian Barnett
Michelle Boulé
Wendell Cooper
Barbara Forbes
Zvi Gotheiner
K.J. Holmes
John Jasperse
Joanne Kotze
Nia Love
Juliette Mapp
Cori Olinghouse
Janet Panetta
Shelley Senter
Vicky Shick
RoseAnne Spradlin
Karinne Keithley Syers
Jesse Zarrit

Podcast: Studies Project 1/20/15: The Role of Class in Current Dance Practices

Movement Research Studies Project, “The Role of Class in Current Dance Practices”
Conceived in Conversation with Movement Research Faculty
Organized by Movement Research in collaboration with Beth Gill, Lance Gries, Eva Karczag and Gwen Welliver


Listen to the Podcast here:
http://traffic.libsyn.com/movementresearch/1_20_15_Studies_Project_Role_of_Class.mp3

The Role of Class was a series of brief and intimate discussions with various teaching artists including Julian Barnett, Michelle Boulé, Wendell Cooper, Jeanine Durning, Barbara Forbes, Zvi Gotheiner, K.J. Holmes, John Jasperse, Joanna Kotze, Nia Love, Juliette Mapp, Cori Olinghouse, Janet Panetta, Shelley Senter, Vicky Shick, RoseAnne Spradlin, Karinne Keithley Syers and Jesse Zarrit. These discussions addressed questions and ideas about dance and movement-based class through their own practices and histories. After the discussions attendants were invited to actively participate in smaller group conversations with the opportunity to share insights and proposals.

Ave Bambi / the last rites
Performed and Choreographed by: Robert Daniel Holmes Maynard

Fingertips Toward Floor, Head Follows or The Lazy Sexy Peepshow

In Fingertips Toward Floor, Head Follows or The Lazy Sexy Peepshow we take on epic-ness, elegance, being lazy-sexy (but more lazy than sexy), intelligent recklessness, and reversibility. Love and trust are central to this work.

 
 

Splinters in our Ankles (work-in-progress*)
Choreography by Gerald Casel
Performed by Arletta Anderson, Kristen Bell, Christina Briggs-Winslow, Rebecca Chaleff, Peiling Kao, and Parker Murphy
Live, original music by Tim Russell

*Inspired by tropes not usually addressed when regarding the Filipino folk dance Tinikling (i.e. colonized bodies, performed resistance, and cultural amnesia), this evening-length work will premiere in December in San Francisco. Special thanks to Margaret Jenkins for her mentorship during the development of this work.

 
 

What a Horse! (work in progress excerpt)
Directed by: Gwen Welliver

Movement Research at the Judson Church – January 12, 2015

 Featuring works by Joanna Kotze, Neil Greenberg, Jen McGinn, Burr Johnson, and Yasuko Yokoshi

 

 

FIND YOURSELF HERE (excerpt)
Choreography: Joanna Kotze in collaboration with the performers
Performers: Jonathan Allen, Zachary Fabri, Joanna Kotze, Andria Morales, Stuart Singer, Netta Yerushalmy
Visual design: Jonathan Allen, Zachary Fabri, Asuka Goto
Composer/Sound designer: Ryan Seaton

FIND YOURSELF HERE, a collaboration between three dancers and three visual artists, is being presented by American Dance Institute (ADI) in April and will have its New York premiere in September.

FIND YOURSELF HERE is made possible in part by a 2014 Jerome Foundation general grant during the foundation’s 50th Anniversary year. FIND YOURSELF HERE is also made possible in part by a 2014 New York Foundation for the Arts BUILD grant, a 2014 LMCC Process Space artist residency (LMCC.net), and by The Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Jerome Foundation and the Davis/Dauray Family Fund. Various stages of investigative movement research and showings of three trios that form the informational foundation of FIND YOURSELF HERE were supported by residencies at the Bogliasco Foundation, Djerassi and Baryshnikov Arts Center (with additional support from the Martha Duffy Award), a Yellow House Educational Stipend, and in part by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC). This work also continues to be supported my many individual contributions.
