Authentic Movement
A witness and a mover agree to enter a mystery. The mover, with eyes closed, self-directed, explores impulses in the present moment. The witness with eyes open watches the movement and holds the intention to support the mover’s experience. Personal imagery, sensation, emotion and the ineffable emerge to consciousness with movement as the source. Authentic Movement provides a powerful context to discover meaning or non-meaning from experience and to retrieve seminal material for the artist. After moving and witnessing, a process of speaking, moving, drawing or writing recalls the experiences. The ritual has the intention of maintaining the internal efficacy of what just happened.

Upcoming Workshop.

Workshop with Jeremy Nelson.
October 14-18 Monday – Friday 12:30pm-2:30pm
Avenue C Studio, 55 Avenue C.
$14 per class, Movement Research Class Cards applicable
The workshop will draw on Nelson’s 25 years of continuing study in the work of Barbara Mahler and Susan Klein, and by more recent studies in other techniques such as Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais Method® and Body-Mind Centering®. We will begin with simple exercises and stretches that encourage mobility and suppleness in the superficial muscles, establish clear connections and directions through the bones, and create a dynamic and weighted relationship with the floor. The class will also incorporate a variety of approaches including some improvisation and hands-on work in partners that help deepen our awareness and give us the opportunity to really experience some of these ideas in a physical way. We will then take our work into very simple activities and movements in order to try and integrate this new awareness into our body’s movement patterns, and then build up to phrases of movement that involve moving more fully and dynamically.

Classes this week with…

Joanna Kotze. Morning Class.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Edens Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

Beauty, awkwardness, form, strength, weakness. Intended to be both laboratory and class, the sessions will be time for us to delve into the design of the body and its potential within a given moment. Through stretch and placement, technique studies, movement phrases and open practices, habits will be discovered, challenged, and seen through a new lens. A concentration on the forces through the legs will lead to finding more range in separate body parts and ways to use weight into the floor. My hope is for you to feel present and challenged and to leave class with a few answers and more questions.

Michelle Boulé. Morning Class.
Tuesday & Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

We’ll look at different ways of approaching ‘dance technique’… energy systems, physical systems, architectural-object-spatial relationships, contact and non-contact partner and solo improvisations. I take my current somatic, dance, and performance interests and apply them to a movement practice. A maximally informed approach to dancing. A space of respectful, creative permission for everyone’s body. A time to really let things move in all senses of the word… in relationship with and beyond oneself.

Sunday Process Lab with Anna Sperber.
Sunday October 6 5:00pm-8:00pm.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.
$5
Beginning with a practice of solo improvisations, of seeing and allowing ourselves to be seen; letting the internal logic of the body come to the forefront; dancing for and with each other as a method towards the development of an intimate understanding of each other’s physicality and imaginative identity, while asking how the material interfaces with the space as a compositional container. how do we respond to it? how do we fill it? We will make material and then make decisions that react to what has surfaced. We will repeat a focused cycle of action and reaction, watching for an identity to emerge.

Vicky Shick. Morning Class.
Tuesday & Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

Class will begin with systematically readying an alert body and mind for full-out and detailed dancing which we will do in the second part of class. The goal is to help each dancer increase awareness, level of articulation, strength, technical facility and focus. The warm up is simple and straightforward with an emphasis on alignment, physical mechanics, and space for sensation and feedback from our bodies as we work collaboratively to arrive at dancing. Through the practice of doing phrase work with a wide range of physicality and co-ordinations, we hone our skills and apply our training. And with repetition and exploration we educate ourselves and deepen the understanding of the intelligence in our bodies.
