Writing dance
Choreographer Jonathan Burrows leads a three day workshop investigating choreographic and compositional process, performance and philosophies, questioning how a dance or performance might be made and what it could communicate to somebody watching. Practical work will concentrate on short task-based exercises looking at how to define material and work with time, to hold the attention of an audience and invite them to care what happens next. Sessions will be punctuated also with discussion and viewpoints on other mediums and ways of working, asking all the time what dance can do and what it can’t.

Saturday November 5. Workshop with Jane Gabriels.
5-8pm. Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway
$30
The Lost, The Found and The Fantasy: Urban Meditation
Through an interdisciplinary approach, participants will work with excavating found images, phrases overheard on the bus, movement studies from the street and found sounds and texts to develop their own response to the city and its current dialogue with us. These found materials are things that pulled you towards them, attracted your attention, even if you are not completely sure why. From this fieldwork material, participants will work in the studio with further writing, movement and installation experiments to explore re-enlivening our city-life. Informal, “instant” showings link what has been found with a larger vision of what could be possible. Participants are asked to come to the studio with a scrap of conversation overheard publicly, a picture of a specific place or person in the city, a gesture or series of gestures that they observed in their everyday walks, a torn piece of text found on the street.

Classes this Week.
Join us for classes with faculty: Barbara Mahler, Irene Dowd, Gabriel Forestieri, K.J. Holmes, Shelley Senter, Levi Gonzalez, and Vicky Shick.

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.

K.J. Holmes Saturday classes for this season end on May 22

Hi Everyone! We found a small mistake in our calendars. The wonderful Athletics of Intimacy/Improvisations class with K.J. Holmes will go on summer hiatus one week earlier than announced. The last class will be Saturday May 22nd, 11am-1pm, Eden’s Expressway. Be there!

4 steps into january.  1st day of melt.  27 students.  one injury, carried over from another class into mine.  i yelled at a truck driver on broadway to get out of the way to get the student into a taxi to take her and her injury home.  i have already broken several of my new year’s resolutions.  one being to not yell at pedestrians in my way as i bike over the brooklyn bridge – i think that extends to not yelling at truck drivers on broadway.  another resolution is to not lose track of days or performances, friends’ birthdays, seasons.  so two is that i forgot i was blogging this month;  i have already  lost track of days.  i have been home tonight losing track of time as well listening to the songs of lhasa de sela who passed away on january 1st.  i didn’t know her music until tonight.  does it take losing things to find things?  does it take injuries to learn?  does it take breaking resolutions to really understand their importance?         k.j. holmes/dancer/teacher
