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

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.

Classes this Week with: Margaret Paek, Emily Faulkner, Nia Love, Joanna Kotze, Barbara Mahler, Irene Dowd, K.J. Holmes, Jill Sigman, Karl Anderson

SHAKE/WALK
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.

Podcast: Movement Research Town Hall Meeting September 21, 2010

Movement Research Town Hall Meeting. September 21, 2010. Judson Memorial Church.
Co-Hosted and organized by the Movement Research Artist Advisory Council
Moderated by Jill Sigman

32 years since the founding of Movement Research and the coining of its name, Movement Research invited the whole community to come together to discuss what the concept of ‘movement research’ means to us today. What are we researching? What is the form of that research, what does it require and how is it shared, accessible, or made legible?

We find ourselves now thirty–two years since the founding of Movement Research and the coining of its name; we are entering a new post-Cunningham, post-Pina Bausch era; and we operate in a world where our concepts of information and research are changing rapidly. The umbrella question “what is our research now and (why) is it valuable to us?” seemed a relevant and potent landscape for discussion. We invited three participants to act as catalysts for different lines of discussion and thought: Tere O’Connor, Luciana Achugar, and Daria Fain. The Town Hall was moderated by Jill Sigman.
