Saturday June 29. Workshop with Kathy Westwater
SAT 12-1pm, First Park

FREE
SHAKE/WALK Workshop
Taking two everyday forms of movement, we will allow these forms to disorganize within, and to be disorganizing of, our bodies. The sensations that arise within this unstable and unbound matrix range from relaxing to energizing, from disorienting to freeing. Speculating on the physical and perceptual states that occur amidst the contingencies of environmental trauma and the precarities of economic collapse, this workshop iteration explores locating this improvisational practice in an outdoor urban environment, beyond the four walls of the studio. Open to movers of all backgrounds; wear comfortable street or dance clothes.

Performers and Authorship
A performer’s authorship is an ongoing series of events: looping back, rebuilding, erasing, uncovering, disenchanting, replacing, and stumbling into unknown territory. Anything you as a performer represent or produce is temporary, but part of a contained continuity. This continuity is not necessarily progressive, doesn’t necessarily improve or devolve. It has plasticity. It’s a continuity that both accepts and resists form, folds and swells, is flexible and forceful. This workshop aims at adding to the ongoing process of skillful perception by engaging with submerged fictions through physical performance practices. Language will be useful for its ability to distinguish one thing from another. Physical experience will be useful for its ability to humble and destabilize these distinctions. Performance experience will be useful.

Movement Research Town Hall Follow-Up Discussion: Alternative Economies.

2012 MR Town Hall Follow-Up Discussion
We’re not done yet! In a follow-up discussion to the 2012 Movement Research Town Hall, we will look deeper into structures and alternatives that have manifested within the recent and current dance economy. Join panelists, who have been involved in splinter conversations that began after the November 5 Town Hall meeting, as they share some of their groups’ discussions. We will peek into the different ongoing conversations to glean further insights and understandings on the topics of value, money, time and dance-making.

Classes this week with…

luciana achugar. Feeling is Believing.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

Class will be taught by Melanie Maar June 17 & 19.
I like to think of dance class as a chance to grow a new body. I am in a process of developing the language that gives me access to a more sensual, animal, connected, bloody, fleshy, fatty, bony, magical, deeper than even the marrow of the bone, vibrational body, and I’d like to share it with you. Using our imagination a lot, using our breath and our voice, using touch, and also sometimes discussing and learning tools for strengthening connections and for letting go of patterns of use of ourselves. Always moving towards pleasure…

Lance Gries (subbing for Vicky Shick). Embodying and Exchanging Energy.
Tuesday & Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

This class will explore how individuals and groups embody and exchange “energy.” We will keep an open mind about how energy is present, sensed, and a source in us: inspiration, creativity, motivation, connection, collaboration, presence, emotion, spirituality – energy forms that exist in our physical and non physical experience, shaping our interactions. Guided experiences and improvisational forms bring our heightened awareness and dimensional bodies into a potent energetic state to create a supportive and collaborative environment, leading us to shared dancing, creativity, and discourse.

Workshops and Studies Projects This Week.

Wednesday April 17. Studies Project: “Pushing Boundaries.”
6:15pm
Gibney Dance Center
Conceived by Ori Flomin
With panelists Arthur Aviles, Jennifer Wright Cook, Colleen Thomas, Larissa Velez-Jackson and more
Moderated by Moira Brennan
FREE

Much value is placed on the idea of artwork that is at the cutting edge, with the words “pushing boundaries” emphasized in grants, applications and curating language. This conversation examines what might be meant by “pushing boundaries”? How important is it in the creative process and its outcome? Is the point of view of the artist different from the one of the audience when determining something as “pushing boundaries”? What assumptions or cultural contexts are assumed to establish these boundaries? Are there other ways to value contemporary work?

April 12-20. Workshop with Larissa Velez-Jackson.
April 19 FRI 2:30-5:30pm
April 20 SAT 4:30-7:30pm

Asli Bulbul. Morning Class.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

Working from the body’s innate intelligence, class will start with simple awareness and coordination exercises influenced by different somatic disciplines to organize the body and prepare us for more technical movement. We will work on remembering and re-wiring organic pathways and explore alternative solutions to our habitual patterns. Class will build in physical intensity, culminating in a chance to put our experiments to the test. Sometimes this will mean phrase work and other times class will stay in a more lab/workshop-like format.

Jon Kinzel. Technique / EXERCISES IN COMPOSITION.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

This class is designed to access multiple threads at once such as greater range of motion and articulation, isolated and momentum-driven movement forms, rhythmic and kinesthetic intelligence, sense of scale, ascent and descent, injury prevention, alignment, personal and musical expression, and dancing that supports a balanced square orientation over a vertical axis while traversing through space, and shifting off center, in a mode that reflects a play between athleticism, performance, and a particular disposition.

David Thomson. Morning Class.
Tuesday & Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

Class will be taught by Kayvon Pourazar on April 16 & 18. This class will focus on alignment, weight, clarity of momentum, and breath. Using influences from Chi Gong, Alexander, yoga, modern and postmodern constructs to release the joints, connect to the floor, lengthen the spine, activate the senses and warm the body. We continue the exploration in the second half through a combination of improvisation, phrase material and other choreographic structures to expand the experience of dancing.

American Nostalgia
Created by Toussaint Jeanlouis.
Performed by Adam Wile, Amanda McNussen, Mersiha Mesihovic, Toussaint Jeanlouis, and Victoria Sendra.
Audio by Toussaint Jeanlouis.
American Nostalgia tackles what America was, is today, is becoming, and who We are within it. Created with a perspective of a twenty-something, American Nostalgia attempts to explain and question the so-called “apathy” of the generation. Without answers, this is the beginning of our physical journey and the first part to this story.
Special thanks to niv Acosta.

Toussaint Jeanlouis is a graduate of California Institute of the Arts (MFA Acting) and Arizona State University (BA Theater). He moved to New York City from Los Angeles in May of 2012 as a trainee with the Blue Man Group and has since then continued to work and be a part of interdisciplinary collaborations. His interests in Grotowski, Bill T. Jones, and Robert Wilson have led to his exploration of the body and performance. He is excited and honored to be participating in this series Movement Research at the Judson Church. www.toussaintjeanlouis.com

Frances Alenikoff (1920–2012):
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Frances Alenikoff, celebrated artist and owner and founder of Eden’s Expressway. Frances passed away peacefully in Southampton Hospital after a last visit from her daughter Francesca Rheannon, grandson, and great-granddaughter.
The Movement Research staff is enormously grateful to Frances Alenikoff for her continuing belief in the mission of Movement Research. We will miss her and her spirited example of what lifelong artistry is.
