Tools for Dance Improvisation

Every joint of our body has its range of movement, there are countless possible combinations. The body contains a great practical knowledge far beyond what the mind is capable of processing, resulting in an ever-changing, fluid sense of orientation that can serve as a sensor for potential movement. Through (group) improvisation with one or more partners, exchanging information through touch, we will take advantage of this phenomenon to create forms, rhythms, movement qualities more sophisticated than our minds could invent. This event is part of International Dance Dialogues (IDD), created and curated by Janet Panetta.

Wednesday January 25. Studies Project: Dance and the Occupy Movement
7:30pm. Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics. 20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor.
Organized by Abigail Levine
“Exploring an expanded notion of choreography and how it is related to our social and political organization and discovery of ourselves as individuals working within a temporary collective… circling and questioning around ideas of a moving community.” –Movement Research Festival Spring 2011 brochure “Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.”
–Declaration of the Occupation, NYC General Assembly

What are the points of contact between experimental, contemporary dance and the Occupy Movement? As spatial and embodied practice? As social investigation and organization? As improvisation and movement? As agents of change? How do and might these moving communities interact? How do we approach (public and private) space in New York City? Barbara Browning, Paloma McGregor, Clarinda Mac Low, Edisa Weeks, and Daniel Lang-Levitsky open a conversation about this creative political moment.

Wednesday January 25. Open Performance.

Prosody and Commoning on Governor’s Island exhibition and performance by Daria Faïn and Robert Kocik

11AM: door opens Exhibition (on display all day): drawings and documentation concerning commoning and the Prosodic Body

1PM-3PM: Talks and Discussion with feminist activist, teacher, communalist historian Silvia Federici and the visionary socialist, writer, composer, bandleader, baritone saxophonist Fred Ho, moderated by Robert Kocik. Fred Ho: FUTURE’S END: COMMUNISM AND ECOLOGY, REVOLUTION IS THE ONLY SOLUTION AND IT MUST BE LUDDITE! In this talk Fred Ho will ask: what is revolutionary socialist ludditism? Why is it the only solution? Why is it matriarchal (matri-centric) and indigenous-centric and why must these features be the foundation for a truly effectively revolutionary movement? More on Sylvia Federici: (the nature of her talk will be announced in a subsequent email).

3PM-4PM: Performance of the Commons Choir (conceived and directed by Daria Faïn and Robert Kocik). This piece is called Re-English-a re-tuning, an atoning for the fact that our current economic, climate and security crises are consequents of the sonic and connotative qualities of the English language-by means of phonemes as cosmogony; sound sequences as specific biochemical signaling, a reparation narrative, poetry as protection, and full recovery of the lost optative mood. With Aretha Aoki, Margot Basset, Chung-chen Chang , Stephen Cooper, Levi Gonzalez, Hazuki Homma, Masumi Kishimota, Dora Koimtzi, Athena Kokoronis, Martin Lanz, Mina Nishimura, Peter Sciscioli, Kensaku Shinohara and Samita Sinha.

4PM-5PM: Screening of Collecting Collective Phase I: Filmic interpretations of commoning directed by Iki Nakagawa with contributions from Caterina Verde and Douglas Manson.
