Podcast: Studies Project: New Models for Presenting Dance in the 21st Century

Movement Research Studies Project, “New Models for Presenting Dance in the 21st Century”

New Models for Presenting Dance discussed the dynamic shift the landscape of dance presentation in NYC has undergone over the last five years. New spaces for showing work have opened, museums and galleries are regularly programming performance, and several venues that present multiple artistic genres have become specifically interested in presenting dance. This conversation with a sampling of voices from these venues created a layered portrait of the constantly shifting field of dance presentation, while examining its new directions.

TRULY MADLY DEEPLY. Nov 29-Dec 4.

Movement Research Festival FALL 2010: TRULY MADLY DEEPLY starts Monday November 29. Don’t miss workshops, performances, and a studies project with this AMAZING group of artists curated by Jon Kinzel and John Jesurun! www.movementresearch.org/performancesevents/festival/

Movement Research Festival Fall 2010:
TRULY MADLY DEEPLY
November 29-December 4, 2010

TRULY MADLY DEEPLY are the words that compelled the gathering of this varied but deep group of truly mad artists. Together they share and continually recreate an expanding multidisciplinary landscape. We have called them each from a different corner to represent. They are contemporaneous with each other but their creative interrelationships are not obvious. Each is an uncompromising example of not quite fitting into a category. Grouped together it is a complex and multi-dimensional logic of unique signatures. We have also sought to keep continuity between performances, workshops, audiences and presentations; all these are ways to further investigate the work of the festival artists. The curation has followed the artists’ lead rather than the artists following the curation.
– Festival Co-Curators, John Jesurun and Jon Kinzel

CHOREOGRAPHIC MIND/ making your best work
Looking in practice at what choreography is and does, where does it come from, what is it for; looking at what it means to fuel one’s work with one’s questions; looking at the nature of movement and its communication; issues of continuance, the alchemic nature of time and sequence.

Making is an endless quest with ever shifting ground; making is thinking. I regard teaching as a conversational mode; my exercises are proposals in action. I am at the same time interested in creating a situation in which each student can locate her/his aesthetic and goals; as well in giving students the ability to access states necessary to making work; intuition, perception, cognition, interiority, emotional distance, spontaneity, pleasure, reflection, humor.

This workshop will focus on methods and implications of collaborative movement authorship in intercultural space. We consider the practice of joint-authorship to mean the actualization of individuality while at the same time respecting and attending to the ideas of others. The exercises will emphasize research into the nitty-gritty details of movement across differences of culture and dance traditions, practical strategies of collaborative choreography, and hybrid aesthetics.

STUDIES PROJECT
PANEL: Hovels, hamlets and digital sprawl: our origins.
December 4 SATURDAY 2-4pm
The Club at La MaMa

FREE
Festival artists gather for a discussion moderated by Rosemary Quinn, Experimental Theater Wing Studio Director, NYU Tisch School of the Arts.

Shared experience and a sense of common space are revered by many to be indispensable tenets in the performing arts. Theatrical constructs have been created anew in the digital era. This is a group of artists that together spans the continuum from deep in the pre-digital to a future in the post digital. The moment they share now is somewhere in between. These ideas will serve as departure points, ultimately leading to an artist-generated discussion.

PERFORMANCES

Paula Court will be an ongoing presence documenting many aspects of the festival from a unique and internal point of view. Audiences will be able to view her continuing unedited process as the festival progresses- performance images including dress rehearsal photos will be screened before each night’s scheduled events.

Monique Jenkinson/Fauxnique

Movement Research at the Judson Church
November 29 MONDAY 8pm

FREE
No reservations. Seating is first come, first served.

Out of the core elements of drag, in this case the trappings of overblown femininity (makeup, lip-synch, wigs, spangles, high heels), Monique Jenkinson/Fauxnique creates a movement study inspired by classic drag, Anna Halprin’s Parades & Changes, Kenneth Anger’s film Puce Moment and the early work of Michael Clark.

Lisa Nelson will lend her virtual presence to the festival through a video work.

Choreographer Stephen Petronio will read excerpts from his upcoming memoir Notes From A Life In Motion.

A Temporary Collective has been pulled from New York’s dance and performance scene: Hilary Clark, Erin Cornell, Alex Escalante, Zack Fuller, Maria Hassabi, Jodi Melnick, Matthew Rogers, Colin Stilwell. States of adherence to previously unexplored connections and the notion of making something from nothing will contribute to this experiment. It consists of the initial performance at Movement Research at the Judson Church, one interim rehearsal session and a final performance at Danspace Project.

In Pupa, Cathy Weis turns gravity on its head.

December 2 THURSDAY 8pm
Danspace Project

$12/$8 for Danspace Project Members
tickets: www.danspaceproject.org/calendarandtickets/

Mike Albo will be presenting part of a work in progress, directed by David Schweizer, entitled The Junket– about his adventures as a freelance writer trying to survive the death of journalism in our increasingly insipid, luxury soaked tinsel town. It involves gossip blogs, The Grey Lady, insanely expensive clothing, and his long term relationship with the most abusive boyfriend of all- New York City.

Susan Rethorst: I have been interested in the moment when one dancer approaches another- the expectations in that moment carrying such history- of pas de deux, contact, romance and showmanship. Over and over in my dance making I have found myself approaching another only to say huh?, what now…what do I want to do here? I decided this time I wanted to stay in that moment and not ‘solve’ this dilemma, but see what I could make of the hesitation I found there… this was a beginning point for a duet still in progress. This moment met some other interests/issues inherent in the duet form- persons as equals or not? in what way(s)? what relationship accumulates and by what means…

Brian Rogers is a video and sound artist who makes performances. His recent projects employ moving video cameras, custom built technology, and the audiovisual language of cinema to create unique performative relationships between technology, content, and the live body. Performers include Madeline Best, Shaun Irons, Lauren Petty, and Brian Rogers.

Emily Coates and Lacina Coulibaly: The duet Ici Ou Ailleurs/Here Or Anyplace Else (work-in-progress) investigates the coexistence of diversity and human connection between individuals and cultures. We understand and envision our connectedness through practical questions of weight, energy, anatomy, and performance: How do you use your feet when you dance? How do I? Where is your weight in this step? Where is mine? In what way do you and I emote? Or not? And why? The duet is part of an ongoing, multi-sited research project on intercultural collaboration. Since 2007, we have worked to create dances that honor our respective backgrounds, while simultaneously establishing new spaces of cultural hybridity. Stages of choreographic development have occurred in New Haven, CT and New York, NY, USA and in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

Fiona Templeton: GOING with Coming is both a play and a game, performed by The Relationship. GOING is a precise recreation of a work by the London group The Theatre of Mistakes from 1977, a work that was seminal for much of contemporary performance but little known in the US. It has a fugue-like structure. Coming, which is woven into GOING, returns to the improvisational base out of which GOING grew. In Coming, the structure is set, but content improvised depending on the first performer to enter. The company will perform an excerpt showing both part of GOING and part of Coming. Performers include Katie Brown, Javier Cardona, Stephanie Silver, Julie Troost, Andrew Zimmerman. The Relationship is directed by Fiona Templeton, who was a founding member of the Theatre of Mistakes in the 70s. The group specializes in adventurous use of site, structure, language and relation to the audience.

SATURDAY, JUNE 5

PERFORMANCE , TALK+ EXHIBITION:
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.
