Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor
The class format will offer a variety of scenarios and potential entry points for the development of individual explorations of the material as well as creating within the group. Proceeding from viewing and making, we will work in front of and with each other, adhering to and discarding material as necessary. We will talk about our experiences and have fun sharing time together.

Part of International Dance Dialogues curated by Janet Panetta

technical (and) improvisation work
We’ll try to improve the fluidity of our actions by 1) establishing a purposeful and clear relation with the floor, and 2) integrating all parts of the body in action. The kind of movement I am interested in is first functional, then expressive as a consequence. In these sessions we will try to understand the link between functionality and expressive power. We will often use improvisation instead of set movements in order to understand and apply technical mechanisms in a conscious way; at the same time, a higher technical awareness will allow us to improvise more fluently and with more tools at our disposal.
