Taking two everyday forms of movement, we will allow these forms to disorganize within, and to be disorganizing of, our bodies. This process will lead us into understandings of function and form and also into expressive potentials that arise within experimental states of disorder. As we explore in solo, duet, and ensemble improvisations, moving periodically in contact and/or with eyes closed, the lines between states of order and disorder will be at times stark and at others blurred. The sensations that arise within this unstable and unbound matrix range from relaxing to energizing, from disorienting to freeing.

SEEING : REPEATING : RITUAL
How do we construct our visual field and how is movement constructed by our visual field? How does perception- visual, aural, olfactory- influence movement? How can we achieve heightened perception (without mushrooms)? What is the role of repetition? And how does the connection between perception and movement relate to certain kinds of cultural rituals? This spring I will be co-teaching a course with an anthropologist at Wesleyan University. While the explorations in this workshop will be purely movement-based, they will grow out of the development of this course and the included readings and discussions about ritual, shamanism, and medical anthropology.

Medical Report

One thing that I’ve always found somewhat objectionable about blogs is their tendency to be lead to so much navel gazing. As if the performance art world needs more of that. HOWEVER … now that the season has begun and everyone is back to school I did want to take this opportunity to bring people up-to-date on one of my summer “activities.” I realized waiting in the lobby at Miguel Gutierrez’ wonderful (and sold out) show that many people had not seen me since a certain medical emergency had befallen me and rumors were swirling. So, in order to squash those rumors I’m submitting my medical discharge report from New York Down Town hospital. The upshot is that, nothing was found out, it was likely a one-time episode and most importantly, I, like many of you, am without health insurance. Suddenly those idiots screaming “socialist” at town hall meetings take on a whole new meaning.

Anyway, for your fall reading pleasure:
