This Week at Movement Research…

1130

Sunday Process Lab with Molly  Lieber and Eleanor Smith
Sunday, September 21
5:00 pm-8:00 pm $5
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway
RSVP Here

Sunday Process Labs are a series of three-hour, low-cost sessions on Sunday evenings, providing an opportunity for a dynamic exchange amongst peers in a lab-type setting. Sessions are facilitated by movement-based artists who will share their individual creative practices and process.

This lab explores finding things of value to us as dancers and choreographers through a variety of improvisational scores based on the duet form, with some concentration on tactile interaction with the space and each other. We will look at improvisation as a private act in a performative setting and as a public act in a private setting, and on the duet form as a meeting point of these two realms, due to its propensity for both intimacy and expression.

Interview with Levi Gonzalez by Tess Dworman from Womanzine

Here’s an interview between Levi Gonzalez and Tess Dworman for the publication WOMANZINE.

The power of dance is that it opens things up, creates new spaces and possibilities, and is constantly shifting, like the imagination.

PROSODIC BODY Workshop: Choreoprosodia (the fusion of movement and prosody)
These six workshops focus on the sonic properties of language exploring the correspondences between energy centers, hormonal secretion, seed movements, sonic harmony, and emotional and neurological impact. Spending time with each of the different phoneme-harmonic-compositions developed for the Phoneme Choir, we will use a ‘scientific methodology’ to differentiate and name how each affects individuals and inform us of their healing and performative properties.

Workshop with Jonathan Burrows
October 31 – November 2, MON – WED, 12-3pm
Avenue C Studio
$75/$30 drop-in

Writing dance
Choreographer Jonathan Burrows leads a three day workshop investigating choreographic and compositional process, performance and philosophies, questioning how a dance or performance might be made and what it could communicate to somebody watching. Practical work will concentrate on short task-based exercises looking at how to define material and work with time, to hold the attention of an audience and invite them to care what happens next. Sessions will be punctuated also with discussion and viewpoints on other mediums and ways of working, asking all the time what dance can do and what it can’t.

Workshop with Jane Gabriels
November 5
SAT 5-8pm
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway
$30

The Lost, The Found and The Fantasy: Urban Meditation
Through an interdisciplinary approach, participants will work with excavating found images, phrases overheard on the bus, movement studies from the street and found sounds and texts to develop their own response to the city and its current dialogue with us. These found materials are things that pulled you towards them, attracted your attention, even if you are not completely sure why. From this fieldwork material, participants will work in the studio with further writing, movement and installation experiments to explore re-enlivening our city-life. Informal, “instant” showings link what has been found with a larger vision of what could be possible. Participants are asked to come to the studio with a scrap of conversation overheard publicly, a picture of a specific place or person in the city, a gesture or series of gestures that they observed in their everyday walks, a torn piece of text found on the street.

Location: Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street, at 2nd Avenue

The Presence of Space
In this intimate two-day workshop we will start with touch to facilitate awareness of internal and external space and as a means of warming up our sensed communication capacities. From there we will work in duet forms that activate the dynamic presence of space. This will lead to solo practices built from the process of touching, dancing together and listening with each other. We will work with sensory and conceptual space, activating physical imagination through energetic modes of moving and communicating with each other. We will go from there.

BIO:
Jennifer Monson is the artistic director of iLAND – interdisciplinary Laboratory for Art Nature and Dance. Her projects iMAP/Ridgewood Reservoir and BIRD BRAIN are based in the investigation of the relationship between environment and embodied practice. She is currently teaching at the Dance Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as part of an initiative to bring environmental issues to the forefront of the university and the community at large.

Dancer/choreographer Andréya Ouamba, born in Congo-Brazzaville, started his artistic career in 1993. He has worked with numerous international directors and choreographers. In 1995, his first choreography, L’Haleine, won 1st prize at the Mabina-Danse Festival. In 2000, he started Compagnie 1er Temps that has, over the years, traveled from Dakar to Abidjan, Burkina Fasso, Johannesburg, Paris, Düsseldorf, Berlin, Bielefeld, Seoul, Denmark, Mali, Mozambique and Cameroon. In 2007, the company presented a new creation PALABRE, at the Limoges Festival, Les Francophonies en Limousin and toured Australia, Africa and the Oceania region.

Reggie Wilson (Artistic Director and performer) founded his company, Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group, in 1989. Wilson draws from the movement languages of the blues, slave and spiritual cultures of Africans in the Americas and combines them with post-modern elements and his own personal movement style to create what he now calls “post-African/Neo-HooDoo Modern dances.” His work has been presented nationally and internationally.

We move to de-contain. We move to re-member and forget. Our bodies are containment of noises and silences of our memories that are constantly affecting how we live our lives now. This workshop explores our unshared, untold stories through embodiment. It is a practice to give voices to our muted memories. Using both writing and moving as forms of embodiment, we will break and un-break our silence through bodily thinking with the question “How can we use words as we use movement?” Our bodies speak louder than words, but as we search for words and inscriptions to “match” what our bodies have spoken, it can become performative writing. We will use writing as a treasure hunter of dance and silence. This class will start with a silent warm-up leading into improvisation and composition. We will explore several layers and dimensions of silence in and outside of our bodies. There will be showing of our materials utilizing what we created-both individually and collectively. The showing as a practice of sharing/caring will have both aspects of page and stage (meaning a printed booklet/journal and a performance at the end of the workshop).
