Judson @ 50
This Fall, MR celebrates the 50th anniversary of Judson Dance Theater (JDT). MR will mark this historic occasion by engaging artists from a broad range of perspectives, including artists from the original JDT, and exploring the history and perception of JDT amongst the contemporary performance community.

Workshops will be led by June Ekman, Simone Forti, Deborah Hay, and Lisa Nelson. All of these artists have been involved, directly or indirectly, with the work of JDT, and have continued to develop their own work into a distinctive and considered practice that continues to reverberate today.

We kick it off with a workshop with Lisa Nelson, September 5-7. More info soon!!

SHAKE/WALK
Taking two everyday forms of movement, we will allow these forms to disorganize within, and to be disorganizing of, our bodies. This process will lead us into understandings of function and form and also into expressive potentials that arise within experimental states of disorder. As we explore in solo, duet, and ensemble improvisations, moving periodically in contact and/or with eyes closed, the lines between states of order and disorder will be at times stark and at others blurred. The sensations that arise within this unstable and unbound matrix range from relaxing to energizing, from disorienting to freeing.

Genesis Project Artist Interview #4: Fergus Byrne

The following interview took place on August 21st, 2009, between Fergus Byrne (2009 Genesis Project Artist-in-Residence) and Arturo Vidich and Aki Sasamoto (Culture Push co-directors). We conducted the interview via Skype chat, which we found to be an interesting medium, somewhere between a recording and email correspondence. We sat at the same table.

Fergus ByrneAki Sasamoto: What are you working on right now in the residency?

Fergus Byrne: I’m working on various collaborative projects with Saul [Melman] and Meghan [Flanigan]. They can be related to work I have been doing recently back in Ireland. Embroidery with Saul. Dance work and drawing with Meghan.

Arturo Vidich: How has the work you came with to this residency been influenced or added to by the other artists? I’m thinking in particular about the skipping. What strikes me is that you decided not to skip after the first 2 weeks of the residency because it was a hold-over from the work you were doing before you came to Philly. How does, or does it play in to what you’re doing now with drawing, in the last few days?
