Movement Research at the Judson Church – October 19, 2015

Featuring works by Molly Heller in collaboration with Netta Yerushalmy, Melanie Greene, Odeya Nini and Reyes Dance

 


Splits
Choreography and Performance: Molly Heller and Netta Yerushalmy
Music: Michael Wall
Costumes: Molly Heller and Netta Yerushalmy

 


Beautiful Decay
Choreographed by: Melanie Greene in collaboration with the dancers
Performed by: Melanie Greene, Maxine Montilus, Alicia Raquel, Ali Salas, and Italy Welton
Music: Antonin Dvorak, Vivaldi (Dubstep, Polar remix), Max Richter

 


A Solo Voice
Choreographed and Performed by: Odeya Nini

“A Solo Voice” is an investigation of extended vocal techniques, resonance and pure expression, exploring the relationship between mind and body and the various landscapes it can yield. Through multidimensionality that serves to both provoke and soothe in abstract communication, the voice is presented in its spectrum of natures as it travels with tender intimacy and bold aberrance.

Choreographer/Director: Gilbert Reyes
Performers: Camilla Davis and Gilbert Reyes
Music: The Best Time Composed by Gilbert Reyes

Kathy Westwater: SHAKE/WALK Workshop

November 2-9 
Mon Wed Fri Mon 
10am-12:30pm 
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway

November 9 MONDAY:

Workshop participants will perform at MR@Judson, 
6:30pm Tech and 8pm Performance at Movement Research at Judson ChurchWorkshop $100
Advance registration is required

 

SHAKE/WALK Taking two everyday forms of movement, we will allow these forms to disorganize within, and be disorganizing of, our bodies. Sensations that arise within this body matrix range from chaotic to cathartic, and disorienting to freeing. As the workshop unfolds, we will shift attention among sensation, function, and form, delving deeper into the creative potential within experiential states of disorder. Participants will perform a score sourcing these explorations at Movement Research at Judson Church on November 9.

Since 1996, Kathy Westwater has created numerous choreographic works presented at New York Live Arts, Brooklyn Museum, Franklin Furnace, Danspace Project, Joyce SoHo, 92nd Street Y, and PS122, among other places. Described by The Brooklyn Rail as “at the limits of the human,” her work responds to contemporary experience and the societal landscape in which it manifests by reimagining the body’s movement potential. Westwater has taught dance at Sarah Lawrence College since 2001.

This lab will be fun, hopefully. I am interested in our cultural obsession with short flashes of information on platforms like Instagram and how this does or does not relate to the necessarily subtle form of dance and performance in the non-commercial setting. We are going to work on small movement based videos taken on the iPhone. After having a good warm up, we will make phrases of movement and/or movement scenes, look at them together, try to crystallize the essence and then see how that can translate into a digital recording. Feel free to bring costumes and props if you are so inclined.

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 process lab is an opportunity for you to consider meta-cognition, or goal-oriented cognitive strategies and knowledge, as it pertains to your creative process. Navigating through a repeated process of reading, writing, testing, and talking, participants will 1) investigate a singular personal movement or conceptual interest, 2) consider meta-cognition as a proliferating reflexive web, and 3) create control factors as a container of form. Self-reflecting via language and dance-reflecting via movement, the last hour we will practice a durational group construction, following spontaneously constructed scores in a mindful dance experience. Open to all levels.

Podcast: Studies Project 10/6/2015 – What I’ve Learned about Choreography from Watching Movies, Films (and TV)

Movement Research Studies Project, “What I’ve Learned about Choreography from Watching Movies, Films (and TV)” – October 6, 2015
Conceived by Melinda Ring
Moderated by Ryan Hill
With panelists Layla Childs, Tere O’Connor, Melinda Ring, Sonya Robbins and Larissa Velez-Jackson


Listen to the Podcast here:
Studies Project 10/6/15: What I’ve Learned about Choreography from Watching Movies, Films (and TV)

How do the things we watch inform our dance making? What have our (guilty) pleasures, high and low, taught us about form, timing, structure, etc? Does our connection to TV, film and movies keep us attuned to this moment’s mind-image zeitgeist, and conversely, does a lack of attention to these mediums create a gap in relevance of this art form to contemporary culture? Panelists discussed their perspective on these questions followed by a group conversation with everyone present.

Movement Research at the Judson Church – October 5, 2015

Featuring works by I AM A BOYS CHOIR, Xan Burley and Alex Springer / the Median Movement and Mårten Spångberg

Mårten Spångberg: 15min, The Fastest Planet
With and by: Philip E. Foster, Monica Germann, Leanna Grennan, Tuva Hildebrand Peterson, Nikima Jagudajev, Dages Keates Juvelier, Karolina Kraczkowska, Stephanie Lee, Judah Levenson, Mor Mendel, Rebecca Posner, Randy Reyes, Chloe Rossetti, Lily Bo Shapiro, Alix Steeves, Kristin Swiat, Rainey White, Cesar Reyes, Dariana Sanchez, Mårten Spångberg, Gillian Walsh

The truly passionate archeologist does not worship objects extracted from earth but worship the earth itself. Not the world, not earth but the planet – in it self, in its most anonymous. The Planet is an ongoing proposal that examines the ownership and the rights to land beyond perspectives, beyond humans, nations, faith and belief.

Where stones move, where oil dances, where a pair of jeans are equally important as something else, a person, a flame, combinations or a windmill. Where time knows no distance and distance doesn’t know at all, and still it’s happening. We think that’s it to begin but only what we think because there is also flowers, somebody, many instances, the things you use when playing ice-hockey. Langoustine or perhaps one for the road. Those are the planet. Always.
