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.
