Connecting to the Inner and Outer Landscape
Yamazaki’s practice, which is grounded in Butoh and Noguchi gymnastics, examines time and space in the body and in the environment, while sensitizing your perception and feelers to be able to accept the environment, as it is, without any physical or mental blocking. This class is open for anyone who would like to take a moment to listen to and balance your inner and outer sense of space and time.

Sunday September 29. Sunday Process Lab with Melinda Ring.
5-8pm.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway.  $5.

Tuesday October 1. Studies Project: Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice
6pm. Gibney Dance Center, 890 Broadway, 5th Floor. FREE.
Conceived by Amanda Loulaki and Susan Mar Landau

The dramaturg as an active participant in the conceiving and making of movement-based works is a relatively new and evolving phenomenon. Conceived as a two-part event, Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice will explore both the ontology and the workings of dance dramaturgy today. This second event will bring together dramaturgs, choreographers and dancers to engage in an in-depth conversation on the experience, effect and possible implications of the presence of the dramaturg in the choreographic process.

Saturday September 29. MR @ FSG: Workshop with Maximilian Balduzzi.
12-2pm. First Park, 33 E 1st St
FREE

Based on essential principles of impulse, control, opposition and rhythm, the workshop engages participants through a series of exercises developed over the past fifteen years. These physical actions function like a language to enable communication between us. We search for the honest smile, the smile that can release unnecessary tension and give the body its freedom. This work was developed to train the presence of the actor, but it may be useful for other artists and for anyone who wants to find greater awareness through the body. The precision of the exercises and their range of dynamic qualities help bring density to the performer’s body, fostering lightness and the ability to be decided in-the-moment.

Prior to tonight’s program, Movement Research (MR) will solicit questions from the greater MR community regarding the imprint that Judson Dance Theater (1962-64) continues to make on contemporary performance. These questions will be shared with the audience, debated, discussed, and voted upon. Ultimately, four questions will be selected by attendees as focus topics for further investigation by artists nominated to lead a series of week-long performance laboratories and open rehearsals at the New Museum. This event is presented as part of “Movement Research in Residence at the New Museum: Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater Fifty Years Later.”

Judson artists themselves were very involved in various mediums, including film. None more so than Yvonne Rainer, who went from choreographer to filmmaker to choreographer again. This screening features her seminal film of a performance of a rehearsal, LIVES OF PERFORMERS, bridging the gap between her extensive performance work and the film work that was soon to follow.

12-2pm. First Park. 33 E 1st St.
FREE

This class is open to everyone interested in sharing movement experiences. We will practice listening to our instincts as movers and disregarding all preconceived ideas of how one “should” move in space. The participants will explore their own creative movement potential by releasing personal memories and perceptions of their own environment by utilizing the power of the group to build a collective experience. This class is about experiencing the joy for moving and dancing to become totally physical and present, yet connected to our internal states.

Body Mind World, Movement & Language Improvisation
Sometimes our words don’t have access to what we know in our bones, while our dancing doesn’t have access to what’s on our minds. In this workshop we will explore the synergy between movement and language to engage with subject matter that interests us. The class will include warm-ups to awaken our kinetic juices, and focused stream of consciousness writing to put us in touch with our wild thoughts and observations. We will divide our class time between purely improvising with movement, talking together about whatever has been on our minds, and improvising combining moving and speaking.
