Women dominate the dance and performance field in numbers, but not in visibility, ‘success,’ or positions of power. Let’s keep the issue at the forefront and explore how to rectify this. One of the biggest untapped resources is women helping and supporting other women more vocally and consciously—as the majority, our collective efforts would have a massive impact on leveling the field. In this panel, we’ll discussed how to effect change and meaningfully support the majority of our fellow practitioners.

Studies Project 11/10/15: what we talk about when we talk somatics

What does the term “somatics” even mean? Can we arrive at consensus around this as an idea, a value, a practice? This event brought together artists/practitioners of various backgrounds and areas of study to lead the group in experiential practices which evolved into a collective discussion on the term “somatics” and the impact and resonance of this way of learning and being in the world.

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

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.

Podcast: Studies Project 5/6/2014 – Vulnerable Bodies and the Embodiment of Resistance

Movement Research Studies Project, “Vulnerable Bodies and the Embodiment of Resistance”
Conceived by 2012 Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Cristiane Bouger (Brazil/USA)
With panelists Dominika Laster (Poland/USA), Mariangela Lopez (Venezuela/USA), Marcos Steurnagel (Brazil/USA), and Tan Temel (Turkey)

Drawing from artistic practices that reveal or subvert the strenuous adversity of social control, this panel aims to address a myriad of perspectives on the embodiment of political resistance.

Artists and scholars will address works and practices that were informed or influenced by the experience of undergoing the restrictions imposed by dictatorial regimes in the Middle East, South America, and Eastern Europe. By approaching culturally diverse and unrelated geopolitical contexts, the event aims to give visibility to the bodies and interstices of experience that are not immediately seen by the foreign gaze.

Podcast: Spring Festival 5/31/2014: iLand Symposium

Movement Research Spring Festival, iLand Symposium
Sensing to Know / Analyzing to Imagine
Moderated by Jennifer Monson
With participants Amy Berkov, Kathleen McCarthy, Jason Munshi, Hara Woltz


Listen to the Podcast here:
http://traffic.libsyn.com/movementresearch/2014.5.31_iLand_Symposium.mp3

iLAND SYMPOSIUM Sensing to Know /Analyzing to Imagine was a talk and walk exploring the dual perspective of the artist-scientist. Visual, aural and kinesthetic modes in science and art were explored by participants who have experience as both scientists and artists. The first hour was dedicated to discussing the participants’ understanding of the intersection of these seemingly discrete disciplines and the impact of this dual perspective on their current practices. Following the talk, each participant lead a section of a walk to the Brooklyn waterfront, reading the landscape through their particular lens. Moderator Jennifer Monson drew upon her own work, and the insight of 10 years of iLAB residencies, which have developed novel ways of examining New York City’s urban environment.

Participants included Amy Berkov – visual artist, tropical biologist and professor of Biology; Kathleen McCarthy – sculptor and restoration ecologist; Jason Munshi-South – professor of Biology; Hara Woltz – visual artist, landscape architect and conservation biologist. Moderated by Jennifer Monson, artistic director and founder of iLAND-interdisciplinary Laboratory for Art Nature and Dance.

http://traffic.libsyn.com/movementresearch/2015.5.12_Studies_Project_Placing_Performance.mp3

What words do we use, arrange, invent, and discover to talk about the particular communicative power of performance work? How does geographic location and environment influence the creation, languaging, and understanding of dance and performance? How do digital/ virtual sites affect the consumption of dance as a living, complex, emotionally dense form? This conversation covered topics concerning locality, environmental and digital influence, and curatorial process.

Podcast: Studies Project 4/29/15: Dance and Labor

Listen to the Podcast here:
http://traffic.libsyn.com/movementresearch/2015.4.29_Dance_and_Labor.mp3

How is dance labor valued? How has it been valued? How might it be? And how can we affect the value assigned to this labor? These questions were considered across a spectrum of contexts, including individual and institutional, organized and spontaneous, and historical and anecdotal to explore how performance and dance function within our current artistic, economic and labor realities.

Podcast: Studies Project 4/7/15: being a body out loud

Movement Research Studies Project, “being a body out loud”
Conceived by Ni’Ja Whitson Adebanjo, Edisa Weeks and Tara Aisha Willis
With panelists Allison Joy, Jumatau R. Poe and Social Health Performance Club


Listen to the Podcast here:
http://traffic.libsyn.com/movementresearch/2015.4.7_Being_A_Body_Outloud.mp3

Living a body that shouts through the underbelly, a protested or protesting body, a black body, a body of the multitudes, a body of color, a body no one believes, a body of rage or exhaustion, a body on the ground outlined in chalk. Our current moment’s choreographies and vocabularies – gestures, chants, dances, collective actions – reveal (and disrupt) practices of living. What experiences do we hold in memory and body, and how do we hold them? With reverence? Power? Performers and writers responded with those in attendance.
