He has been a member of Handspring Puppet Company (South Africa) since 2004, puppeteering in Tall Horse (BAM) and in William Kentridge’s Il Ritorno d’Ulisse (SF MOMA, Theater der Welt, Edinburgh International Festival). After originating the lead role of “Joey” in the Tony Award-winning play, War Horse, he collaborated in …or and animal… at American Realness and with Jon Kinzel at Danspace.

Performers and Authorship
A performer’s authorship is an ongoing series of events: looping back, rebuilding, erasing, uncovering, disenchanting, replacing, and stumbling into unknown territory. Anything you as a performer represent or produce is temporary, but part of a contained continuity. This continuity is not necessarily progressive, doesn’t necessarily improve or devolve. It has plasticity. It’s a continuity that both accepts and resists form, folds and swells, is flexible and forceful. This workshop aims at adding to the ongoing process of skillful perception by engaging with submerged fictions through physical performance practices. Language will be useful for its ability to distinguish one thing from another. Physical experience will be useful for its ability to humble and destabilize these distinctions. Performance experience will be useful.

2012 MR Town Hall Follow-Up Discussion
We’re not done yet! In a follow-up discussion to the 2012 Movement Research Town Hall, we will look deeper into structures and alternatives that have manifested within the recent and current dance economy. Join panelists, who have been involved in splinter conversations that began after the November 5 Town Hall meeting, as they share some of their groups’ discussions. We will peek into the different ongoing conversations to glean further insights and understandings on the topics of value, money, time and dance-making.

Class will be taught by Levi Gonzalez this Friday June 14
I like to think of dance class as a chance to grow a new body. I am in a process of developing the language that gives me access to a more sensual, animal, connected, bloody, fleshy, fatty, bony, magical, deeper than even the marrow of the bone, vibrational body, and I’d like to share it with you. Using our imagination a lot, using our breath and our voice, using touch, and also sometimes discussing and learning tools for strengthening connections and for letting go of patterns of use of ourselves. Always moving towards pleasure…

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 self and body awareness, level of articulation, strength, technical facility, and almost most importantly, focus. The warm up is simple and straightforward with an emphasis on alignment, physical mechanics, and also leaving 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.

Movement Research Annual Town Hall Meeting

Introduction by Kathy Westwater

This is a recording from the third annual Movement Research Town Hall Meeting, hosted by the Movement Research Artist Advisory Council.

This year, living in the worst economic environment of most of our lifetimes, we ask ourselves: How does the current climate affect our lives and artistic work, and vice versa? What creative insights and understandings, structures and alternatives, have manifest during this time of financial challenge? We gathered to share and articulate our perspectives and personal experiences through the recession and saw that they can have material, theoretical and practical repercussions within our community and beyond.

Also, check out a great synopsis and analysis of the meeting by Eva Yaa Asantewaa on Infinite Body: http://infinitebody.blogspot.com/2012/11/how-do-we-value-dance-and-dancers.html
