March 30 SUN 5-8pm $5
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
Joanna Kotze and Shelley Senter will come together to share their ideas, practices and processes in this collaborative lab. Joanna delves into the design of the body and its potential within any given moment, looking at the forces through the legs to access a wide range of movement, challenging habits and discovering new performance possibilities. Shelley’s interests include critiquing sensation, spatial support, looking at movement as behavior as well as architecture, and addressing un/sub/consciousness, particularly in “the use of the eyes (notice I did not say ‘gaze.’)” Through both movement and dialogue, Joanna and Shelley will exchange information with you and each other about how movement, specificity and potential in the body play important roles in their teaching and creative process.

Open Source Forms: Freedom + Rigor + Courage
April 2-4 WED-FRI 2:30-5:30pm $100
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
Cross-fertilizations and deep commonalities of releasing technique and creative process, with an ultimate goal of individual creative empowerment. Tools to navigate the subconscious, open the voice — literally and figuratively — trust our inner world, access technique as resource and find courage to transcend it. Skura instigated Open Source Forms in 2009, drawing from decades of research and practice in radical composition techniques, and 12 years as core Skinner Releasing teacher.

Thursday May 17 and Friday May 18. Workshop with Jill Sigman.

Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway

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
