Workshop with Daria Faïn & Robert Kocik

SUN 2-6pm
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway

PROSODIC BODY Workshop: Choreoprosodia (the fusion of movement and prosody)
These six workshops focus on the sonic properties of language exploring the correspondences between energy centers, hormonal secretion, seed movements, sonic harmony, and emotional and neurological impact. Spending time with each of the different phoneme-harmonic-compositions developed for the Phoneme Choir, we will use a ‘scientific methodology’ to differentiate and name how each affects individuals and inform us of their healing and performative properties.

Winter MELT 2012.

MELT Intensives are a series of daily workshops in technique, somatics, improvisation, composition and other areas offered each summer (5 weeks) and winter (3 weeks). Taught by Movement Research’s internationally recognized faculty as well as acclaimed guest artists, these workshops provide students with the unique opportunity to engage with some of the most highly regarded and innovative artists in the field of dance today.

There Are No Stepbrothers in Dance
I think the statement “there are no stepbrothers in dance” is a paraphrase of something Balanchine said. His point was that one could only say so much in a dance, and yet what a dance can convey is particular and specific to the medium. In this workshop, we will look at the limitations and strengths of the medium in order to become more exact in our choreographic choices and in order to elicit more clarity from the contexts of meaning we create. Bring 3-10 minutes of a complete choreographic work to be presented live either with you as a solo performer or invite your performers. We will also work on developing some specific tools through compositional exercises. Be prepared to also read, talk, debate, listen, and imagine aloud.

An Eco-poetic Approach to Dance Improvisation and Performance
In this movement workshop we will explore awareness and intention through the development of perceptual acuity in relationship to our inner and outer landscapes. We will examine the delicate relationships between our poetic imagination and our sensory systems. The basis of my approach is that composition and performance are ecologically rooted acts. Our imagination grows from where and how we exist. Movement, story, image and gesture are imbedded in the relationships that are evolving all around us. Come ready to dance, perceive, perform and imagine.

technique |tekˈnēk|
noun a way of carrying out a particular task, esp. the execution or performance of an artistic work or a scientific procedure. • skill or ability in a particular field : he has excellent technique | [in sing. ] • a skillful or efficient way of doing or achieving something This class will approach “technique” by redefining notions of strength and virtuosity, valuing subtlety and utilizing mindfulness and self-observation as physical practices. We’ll awaken the brain and the body, learn by expansion rather than concentration, rigorously attend to the present and learn precise, task-oriented, simple and complex movement phrases.

Touch Move Talk Write: open studio practices
This workshop focuses on generating new practices through touching, moving, talking, and writing. We will shape each practice with simple rules and apply different sequences and durations, giving equal time to all four aspects. By pushing the notion of practice to extremes, one begins to understand assumptions about style, body, self, technique, unspoken rules, expertise, etc. etc… The aim is to proliferate unexpected results, to try many things quickly, and to foment revolution. Please don’t come without a notebook and a pen.

In the absence of the Bessie Awards this season, I’ve decided to use this forum to acknowledge those artists whose work made me think, and feel and marvel and rage and laugh during the 2008-2009 season. I invite you all to add your own to this list. IHJ
