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.

Podcast: Studies Project 3/3/15: Dance and Publish

Movement Research Studies Project, “Dance and Publish”
Hosted by Moriah Evans, Editor-in-chief, The Movement Research Performance Journal
Biba Bell and Will Rawls, co-Editors, Critical Correspondence


Listen to the Podcast here:
http://traffic.libsyn.com/movementresearch/2015.3.3_Dance_and_Publish_2.mp3

As MR’s two publications — the Performance Journal (semi-annual print edition) and Critical Correspondence (monthly web edition) — move into their respective 3rd and 2nd decades, the editorial teams hoped to enter into a more robust dialogue with their colleagues in the field.

The event brought together agents of the dance publishing world in New York and members of the interested public. Buoyed by wine and modest vittles, we broke into three working groups focused on three themes: Design, Circulation and Content. Each working group had auxiliary prompts and exercises to guide a hands-on, brains-on practicum leading to a larger, group conversation.

In preparation, the hosts asked that attendees bring a clutch of journals, periodicals, catalogs and/or websites that serve as their primary sources for dance content.

It is with pleasure and anticipation that we invite you to an upcoming Studies Project sponsored by Movement Research. As MR’s two publications—the Performance Journal (semi-annual print edition) and Critical Correspondence (monthly web edition)—move into their respective 3rd and 2nd decades, the editorial teams hope to enter into a more robust dialogue with their colleagues in the field.

The two-hour event will bring together agents of the dance publishing world in New York and members of the interested public. Buoyed by wine and modest vittles, we will break into three working groups focused on three themes: Design, Circulation and Content. Each working group will have auxiliary prompts and exercises to guide a hands-on, brains-on practicum leading to a larger, group conversation. The salon will be hosted by Moriah Evans, Editor-in-chief, The Movement Research Performance Journal, and Biba Bell & Will Rawls, co-Editors, Critical Correspondence.

In preparation, we ask only that you bring a clutch of journals, periodicals, catalogs and/or websites that serve as your primary sources for dance content.

Panelists include:

Lynn Brown
Donna Costello
Randy Luna
Jessica Nicoll
Jules Skloot

What is the role of the dance teaching artist in schools? Many artists make a living by teaching grades K-12 in the NYC school system. Is their goal to share their artistic practice, the ideology behind their aesthetic, tools for making art, historical reference points, movement skills, or something else? Hear experienced voices from different arenas of dance-in-education and share your own questions and ideas. Reflect on your own practice and how the work of teaching artists impacts education and culture in this city.

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
