Women dominate the dance and performance field in numbers, but not in visibility, ‘success,’ or positions of power. Let’s keep the issue at the forefront and explore how to rectify this. One of the biggest untapped resources is women helping and supporting other women more vocally and consciously—as the majority, our collective efforts would have a massive impact on leveling the field. In this panel, we’ll discussed how to effect change and meaningfully support the majority of our fellow practitioners.

Authentic Movement
A witness and a mover agree to enter a mystery. The mover, with eyes closed, self-directed, explores impulses in the present moment. The witness with eyes open watches the movement and holds the intention to support the mover’s experience. Personal imagery, sensation, emotion and the ineffable emerge to consciousness with movement as the source. Authentic Movement provides a powerful context to discover meaning or non-meaning from experience and to retrieve seminal material for the artist. After moving and witnessing, a process of speaking, moving, drawing or writing recalls the experiences. The ritual has the intention of maintaining the internal efficacy of what just happened.

Upcoming Workshop.

Workshop with Jeremy Nelson.
October 14-18 Monday – Friday 12:30pm-2:30pm
Avenue C Studio, 55 Avenue C.
$14 per class, Movement Research Class Cards applicable
The workshop will draw on Nelson’s 25 years of continuing study in the work of Barbara Mahler and Susan Klein, and by more recent studies in other techniques such as Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais Method® and Body-Mind Centering®. We will begin with simple exercises and stretches that encourage mobility and suppleness in the superficial muscles, establish clear connections and directions through the bones, and create a dynamic and weighted relationship with the floor. The class will also incorporate a variety of approaches including some improvisation and hands-on work in partners that help deepen our awareness and give us the opportunity to really experience some of these ideas in a physical way. We will then take our work into very simple activities and movements in order to try and integrate this new awareness into our body’s movement patterns, and then build up to phrases of movement that involve moving more fully and dynamically.

Classes this week with…

Joanna Kotze. Morning Class.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Edens Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

Beauty, awkwardness, form, strength, weakness. Intended to be both laboratory and class, the sessions will be time for us to delve into the design of the body and its potential within a given moment. Through stretch and placement, technique studies, movement phrases and open practices, habits will be discovered, challenged, and seen through a new lens. A concentration on the forces through the legs will lead to finding more range in separate body parts and ways to use weight into the floor. My hope is for you to feel present and challenged and to leave class with a few answers and more questions.

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

We’ll look at different ways of approaching ‘dance technique’… energy systems, physical systems, architectural-object-spatial relationships, contact and non-contact partner and solo improvisations. I take my current somatic, dance, and performance interests and apply them to a movement practice. A maximally informed approach to dancing. A space of respectful, creative permission for everyone’s body. A time to really let things move in all senses of the word… in relationship with and beyond oneself.

Studies Project This Week.

Tuesday March 19. Studies Project: Performing the Changing City: Public space, transformative events and creative action in New York.
7pm
Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics
Organized by Abigail Levine and Paloma McGregor
With panelists luciana achugar, Randy Martin, Jenny Romaine, and Niegel Smith
FREE

“…careening astronauts and bank clerks glancing at the clock before lunch; actresses cowling at light-ringed mirrors and freight elevator operators grinding a thumbful of grease on a steel handle: student riots; that dark women in bodegas shook their heads last week because in six months prices have risen outlandishly; how coffee tastes after you’ve held it in your mouth, cold, a whole minute.” -Samuel R. Delany, Dhalgren

Hurricanes, transit strikes, planned and unplanned explosions, occupations… Bike lanes, bus lanes, protest pens, command centers… Pedestrian zones, redevelopment zones, disaster zones… How is the landscape of our city changing and what are the possibilities for creative response? Looking at the shifting social, economic, and literal topography of our city through the frame of transformative events and policy decisions, we ask the question: what is the role of artists, activists, and all citizens in conceiving, creating, and defending (a notion of) public space? And conversely, what is the role of public space as a partner in creative expression and action? luciana achugar, Randy Martin, Jenny Romaine, and Niegel Smith reflect on our shifting urban landscape and offer opportunities to imagine how we might enact our city in the future.

A space of respectful, creative permission for everyone’s body. A time to really let things move in all senses of the word… in relationship within and beyond oneself. Structure = warm-up leads to choreographed phrase work.

John Jasperse. Morning Class.
Tuesday and Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

Movement Practice
The class will begin with an anatomy focused warm-up, drawn from both traditional and recent techniques, aiming to align and re-pattern the energy flow in the body in order to find support from the floor and our connection into space. We will begin with simple movements, improvisation scores, exercises, and sequences gradually building in complexity. We will learn movement material, some from Jasperse’s work and some created for these explorations. Our goal will be to integrate energetic patterning explored in the first portion of class and to play with different manners of experiencing and embodying the choreographic material.
