Prior to tonight’s program, Movement Research (MR) solicited questions from the greater MR community regardign the imprint that Judson Dance Theater (1962-1964) continues to make on contemporary performance. These questions were shared with the audience, debated, discusssed, and voted upon. Ultimately, four questions were 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 was presented as part of “Movement Research in Residence at the New Museum: Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater Fifty Years Later.”

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.

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.

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.

Body Mind World, Movement & Language Improvisation
Sometimes our words don’t have access to what we know in our bones, while our dancing doesn’t have access to what’s on our minds. In this workshop we will explore the synergy between movement and language to engage with subject matter that interests us. The class will include warm-ups to awaken our kinetic juices, and focused stream of consciousness writing to put us in touch with our wild thoughts and observations. We will divide our class time between purely improvising with movement, talking together about whatever has been on our minds, and improvising combining moving and speaking.

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.
