Why I am not a painter
This is a writing workshop. It is open to anyone who wants to play with words, to see what they can do, and how. But it is made with dance-artists in mind. How do words live in time and space, whether on the stage, the page or in the mind? Critical writing, creative writing, performance texts… are they really such different creatures? Does a dancer have a particular way of approaching language? What about a writer who spends so much of her time watching dancers? So many questions. We’ll spend our time looking for answers, individually and as a group.

Classes this week with…

Asli Bulbul. Morning Class.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

Working from the body’s innate intelligence, class will start with simple awareness and coordination exercises influenced by different somatic disciplines to organize the body and prepare us for more technical movement. We will work on remembering and re-wiring organic pathways and explore alternative solutions to our habitual patterns. Class will build in physical intensity, culminating in a chance to put our experiments to the test. Sometimes this will mean phrase work and other times class will stay in a more lab/workshop-like format.

Jennifer Nugent. Morning Class.
Tuesday & Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.
NO CLASS this Tuesday, May 7

Using improvisational and set warm-ups, we will focus on the volume and weight inside the body and its relationship to the floor. Exercises that bring awareness to the feet, spine, and pelvic floor encourage the feeling of release in the limbs, allowing us to fall and suspend off-center, simultaneously finding a grounded flexible base of support. Using these physical tools, we will explore sensation, instinct, and the inherent musicality inside the body, phrasing. All the while dancing, we will work toward a more grounded and direct approach to movement. No Class May 7.

Sunday May 5. Studies Project: Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice: A conversation in two parts
2:30-4:30pm
Center for Performance Research

Conceived by Amanda Loulaki and Susan Mar Landau
A Roundtable discussion with Thomas F. DeFrantz, Susan Mar Landau, Andre Lepecki and Katherine Profeta

FREE

The dramaturg as an active participant in the conceiving and making of movement based works is a relatively new and evolving phenomenon, as well as one that can be both mysterious and suspect. Conceived as a two-part event, Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice will explore both the ontology and the workings of dance dramaturgy today. Precluded by a short history on the topic, the first event will bring together a diverse group of working dramaturges to discuss their experiences and the possible implications of their role in the choreographic process. The second event, to take place in the fall, will open the conversation to include choreographers in an in depth discussion on the practice of dramaturgy.

Wednesday April 17. Studies Project: “Pushing Boundaries.”
6:15pm
Gibney Dance Center
Conceived by Ori Flomin
With panelists Arthur Aviles, Jennifer Wright Cook, Colleen Thomas, Larissa Velez-Jackson and more
Moderated by Moira Brennan
FREE

Much value is placed on the idea of artwork that is at the cutting edge, with the words “pushing boundaries” emphasized in grants, applications and curating language. This conversation examines what might be meant by “pushing boundaries”? How important is it in the creative process and its outcome? Is the point of view of the artist different from the one of the audience when determining something as “pushing boundaries”? What assumptions or cultural contexts are assumed to establish these boundaries? Are there other ways to value contemporary work?

April 12-20. Workshop with Larissa Velez-Jackson.

Embodying and Exchanging Energy
This workshop will explore how individuals and groups embody and exchange “energy.” We will keep an open mind about how energy is present, sensed, and a source in us: inspiration, creativity, motivation, connection, collaboration, presence, emotion, spirituality – energy forms that exist in our physical and non physical experience, shaping our interactions. Guided experiences and improvisational forms bring our heightened awareness and dimensional bodies into a potent energetic state to create a supportive and collaborative environment, leading us to shared dancing, creativity, and discourse.

This Week at Movement Research… Join us for Open Performance and another special Judson @ 50 event in partnership with Anthology Film Archives – JUDSON: SECOND GENERATION AND BEYOND!

Tuesday October 16. Judson @ 50:
MR in Partnership with Anthology Film Archives

JUDSON: SECOND GENERATION AND BEYOND
6:45pm. Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue.
$10; $8 students/seniors/Friends of MR; $6 Anthology Members

Judson had an impact much larger than its three year existence would suggest. Many artists were deeply influenced by the ground broken by JDT, either directly or indirectly. This screening looks at work that bears the imprint of Judson but moves beyond the boundaries of that seminal period:

Richard Rutkowski
THE SPACE IN BACK OF YOU
2011, 65 min, digital video.
This highly visual and visceral documentary investigates the creative life of Suzushi Hanayagi, a powerful, innovative, even radical Japanese dancer and choreographer. For over 20 years she was a close collaborator with and major influence on theater legend Robert Wilson, who referred to her simply as “my teacher”. When Wilson discovers Hanayagi living in an old-age home and suffering from Alzheimer’s, Wilson resolves to work with her once again. Poignant witness to the transition of a life from vibrancy to legacy, this film becomes the final collaboration between a great teacher and her most renowned student.

CHANNEL Z (live performance excerpt, P.S. 122, 1986)
1986, 20 min, video
Channel Z (1982-1990) was a collaborative improvisation group that initially formed out of a series of dance sessions organized by Robin Feld for people who were teaching Contact Improvisation in New York City. Featuring: Paul Langland, Daniel Lepkoff, Diane Madden, Nina Martin, Randy Warshaw.

Steve Paxton
FALL AFTER NEWTON
1987, 23 min, video.
A sweeping look at 11 years of practice of Contact Improvisation by Nancy Stark Smith and Steve Paxton. The progression from its beginnings in 1972 through successive years of performances up to 1983 shows one strand of the development of this multifaceted duet dance form.

Wednesday October 17. Open Performance.
8pm. A.R.T./NY, South Oxford Space, 138 S Oxford St, Brooklyn.
FREE!

Featuring works by Molly Poerstel-Taylor, Andary Dance, and Lia Bonfilio.

Sunday October 28. Judson @ 50:
MR in Residence at the New Museum

A Pluralistic View of the Judson Dance Theater Legacy:
Yvonne Rainer & Aileen Passloff with Wendy Perron
3pm. New Museum, 235 Bowery.
$6 New Museum members, $8 General Public

The divergences between the work of Yvonne Rainer and Aileen Passloff highlight the vastness of the imprint of Judson Dance Theater (1962-64; JDT) while dismantling the myth of a singular Judson aesthetic. Rainer, along with dance artists Steve Paxton, Trisha Brown, Lucinda Childs, David Gordon, and others, broke with the conventions of modern dance by exploring task dances and the Dadaist idea of radical juxtaposition. Passloff, along with Jimmy Waring, Fred Herko, Arlene Rothlein, and others, reveled in the full-out dancing and whimsy of modern dance. In this talk, moderated by Wendy Perron, Rainer and Passloff consider the legacy of Judson Dance Theater from the perspectives of their divergent practices.

Some questions that Rainer and Passloff will address: What were you saying “No” to, and what were you saying “Yes” to? In what ways did the ’60s affect Judson Dance Theater? How did others in the JDT collective influence your work? What artistic values do you feel JDT has handed down to later generations?

Monday-Friday October 29-November 2.
Workshop with Azusa Seyama Prioville.

2pm-4pm. Gibney Dance Center, Studio 6.
Full Workshop $75, Drop-in $18.50

Creating Character Through Movement
By raising awareness of the physical possibilities in the body this workshop will encourage finding richer and more meaningful personal movement. Employing various processes used in dance theater practices we will search where movement starts and push the limits of where it can go.

The Week Ahead. October 7-14.

This Week at Movement Research… a special event in partnership with Danspace Project and Anthology Film Archives, a FREE workshop with Daria Faïn and an amazing class schedule, as always!

Sunday October 7. Judson @ 50: JUDSON RECONSTRUCTED
MR in Partnership with Danspace Project and Anthology Film Archives
3pm. Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue.
$10; $8 students/seniors/Friends of MR/Danspace Project Members; $6 Anthology Members
In 1982, Danspace Project and Bennington College collaborated on “The Judson Project,” a series of performances dedicated to reconstructing Judson-era works with 14 Judson choreographers, including Edward Bhartonn, Remy Charlip, Lucinda Childs, Philip Corner, Brian De Palma, Judith Dunn, Simone Forti, Deborah Hay, Aileen Passloff, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, Carolee Schneemann, Elaine Summers, and James Waring. The Bennington College Judson Project also filmed interviews with many of the artists that were central to Judson Dance Theater. Danspace Project and Movement Research share a selection of these rarely-seen reconstructions and interviews in a special afternoon screening.

Saturday October 13. MR @ FSG: Workshop with Daria Faïn.
12-2pm. First Street Green, 33 E 1st St.
FREE

According to Chinese energetic, in October we are transitioning between the Earth and the Metal energy. The Earth corresponds to the Digestive System (stomach/pancreas/spleen), and the Metal to the Lungs/Large Intestine. It is about the energy coming back into the Earth and the ability to transform by letting go of what we don’t need internally and externally. The session will include a warm up, and a series of intuitive movement meditations to activate these energies, tapping into our immediate environment with our sensory apparatus and our experiential field.

Classes this Week with: Asli Bulbul, Janet Panetta, David Thomson, Barbara Mahler, Irene Dowd, Clare Maxwell, Karl Anderson, K.J. Holmes, Daria Faïn, Bradley Teal Ellis, Rebecca Bone, Jesse Johnson, Mark Messer and Brandin Steffensen.

Upcoming.

6:30pm. Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue.

Judson artists themselves were very involved in various mediums, including film. None more so than Yvonne Rainer, who went from choreographer to filmmaker to choreographer again. This screening features her seminal film of a performance of a rehearsal, LIVES OF PERFORMERS, bridging the gap between her extensive performance work and the film work that was soon to follow.

Saturday October 6. MR @ FSG: Workshop with Mariangela Lopez.
12-2pm. First Street Green, 33 E 1st St.
FREE

This class is open to everyone interested in sharing movement experiences. We will practice listening to our instincts as movers and disregarding all preconceived ideas of how one “should” move in space. The participants will explore their own creative movement potential by releasing personal memories and perceptions of their own environment by utilizing the power of the group to build a collective experience. This class is about experiencing the joy for moving and dancing to become totally physical and present, yet connected to our internal states.

MR in Partnership with Anthology Film Archives
JUDSON RECONSTRUCTED
3pm. Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue.
$10; $8 students/seniors/Friends of MR; $6 Anthology Members

In 1982, Danspace Project and Bennington College collaborated on “The Judson Project,” a series of performances dedicated to reconstructing Judson-era works with 14 Judson choreographers, including Edward Bhartonn, Remy Charlip, Lucinda Childs, Philip Corner, Brian De Palma, Judith Dunn, Simone Forti, Deborah Hay, Aileen Passloff, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, Carolee Schneemann, Elaine Summers, and James Waring. The Bennington College Judson Project also filmed interviews with many of the artists that were central to Judson Dance Theater. Danspace Project and Movement Research present a selection of these rarely-seen reconstructions and interviews in a special afternoon screening.

Saturday October 13. Workshop with Daria Faïn.
12-2pm. First Street Green, 33 E 1st St.
FREE

According to Chinese Energetics, in October we are transitioning between the Earth and the Metal energy. The Earth corresponds to the Digestive System (stomach/pancreas/spleen), and the Metal to the Lungs/Large Intestine. It is about the energy coming back into the Earth and the ability to transform by letting go of what we don’t need internally and externally. The session will include a warm up, and series of intuitive movement meditations to activate these energies taping into our immediate environment with our sensory apparatus and our experiential field.

Tuesday October 16. Judson @ 50:
MR in Partnership with Anthology Film Archives
JUDSON: SECOND GENERATION AND BEYOND
6:45pm. Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue.
$10; $8 students/seniors/Friends of MR; $6 Anthology Members

Judson had an impact much larger than its three year existence would suggest. Many artists were deeply influenced by the ground broken by JDT, either directly or indirectly. This screening looks at work that bears the imprint of Judson but moves beyond the boundaries of that seminal period.

Richard Rutkowski
THE SPACE IN BACK OF YOU
2011, 65 min, digital video.
This highly visual and visceral documentary investigates the creative life of Suzushi Hanayagi, a powerful, innovative, even radical Japanese dancer and choreographer. For over 20 years she was a close collaborator with and major influence on theater legend Robert Wilson, who referred to her simply as “my teacher”. When Wilson discovers Hanayagi living in an old-age home and suffering from Alzheimer’s, Wilson resolves to work with her once again. Poignant witness to the transition of a life from vibrancy to legacy, this film becomes the final collaboration between a great teacher and her most renowned student.
Plus: additional surprises!

Monday-Friday October 28-November 2.

Creating Character Through Movement
By raising awareness of the physical possibilities in the body this workshop will encourage finding richer and more meaningful personal movement. Employing various processes used in dance theater practices we will search for where movement starts and push the limits of where it can go.

The Week Ahead. September 24-30, 2012.

Saturday September 29. MR @ FSG: Workshop with Maximilian Balduzzi.
12-2pm. First Park, 33 E 1st St
FREE

Based on essential principles of impulse, control, opposition and rhythm, the workshop engages participants through a series of exercises developed over the past fifteen years. These physical actions function like a language to enable communication between us. We search for the honest smile, the smile that can release unnecessary tension and give the body its freedom. This work was developed to train the presence of the actor, but it may be useful for other artists and for anyone who wants to find greater awareness through the body. The precision of the exercises and their range of dynamic qualities help bring density to the performer’s body, fostering lightness and the ability to be decided in-the-moment.

Prior to tonight’s program, Movement Research (MR) will solicit questions from the greater MR community regarding the imprint that Judson Dance Theater (1962-64) continues to make on contemporary performance. These questions will be shared with the audience, debated, discussed, and voted upon. Ultimately, four questions will be selected by attendees as focus topics for further investigation by artists nominated to lead a series of week-long performance laboratories and open rehearsals at the New Museum. This event is presented as part of “Movement Research in Residence at the New Museum: Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater Fifty Years Later.”

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.
