Studies Project: Movement Research Festival Fall 2013: Performing Vulnerability

Movement Research Festival Fall 2013 Studies Project: Performing Vulnerability

Adrienne Truscott with panelists: niv Acosta, Ben Asriel, Hilary Clark, Miguel Gutierrez and Juliana May

Jimmy’s 43, December 4, 2013 as part of Movement Research’s Festival Fall 2013 “Le Song, Ya?!” curated by Adrienne Truscott and Jibz Cameron (Dynasty Handbag)

Listen to the Podcast here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/movementresearch/12.4.13_FF_Studies_Proj_Performing_Vulnerability_Podcast.mp3

This Studies Project revolved around the questions: What does it mean to be vulnerable in performance? Is vulnerability a state or can it be “done?”

Note: At about 53 minutes into the conversation there is a short missing section due to technical difficulties.

This Week at Movement Research… a special event in partnership with Danspace Project and Anthology Film Archives, a FREE workshop with Daria Faïn and an amazing class schedule, as always!

Sunday October 7. Judson @ 50: JUDSON RECONSTRUCTED
MR in Partnership with Danspace Project and Anthology Film Archives
3pm. Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue.
$10; $8 students/seniors/Friends of MR/Danspace Project Members; $6 Anthology Members
In 1982, Danspace Project and Bennington College collaborated on “The Judson Project,” a series of performances dedicated to reconstructing Judson-era works with 14 Judson choreographers, including Edward Bhartonn, Remy Charlip, Lucinda Childs, Philip Corner, Brian De Palma, Judith Dunn, Simone Forti, Deborah Hay, Aileen Passloff, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, Carolee Schneemann, Elaine Summers, and James Waring. The Bennington College Judson Project also filmed interviews with many of the artists that were central to Judson Dance Theater. Danspace Project and Movement Research share a selection of these rarely-seen reconstructions and interviews in a special afternoon screening.

Saturday October 13. MR @ FSG: Workshop with Daria Faïn.
12-2pm. First Street Green, 33 E 1st St.
FREE

According to Chinese energetic, in October we are transitioning between the Earth and the Metal energy. The Earth corresponds to the Digestive System (stomach/pancreas/spleen), and the Metal to the Lungs/Large Intestine. It is about the energy coming back into the Earth and the ability to transform by letting go of what we don’t need internally and externally. The session will include a warm up, and a series of intuitive movement meditations to activate these energies, tapping into our immediate environment with our sensory apparatus and our experiential field.

Classes this Week with: Asli Bulbul, Janet Panetta, David Thomson, Barbara Mahler, Irene Dowd, Clare Maxwell, Karl Anderson, K.J. Holmes, Daria Faïn, Bradley Teal Ellis, Rebecca Bone, Jesse Johnson, Mark Messer and Brandin Steffensen.

Upcoming.

Tuesday October 16. Judson @ 50:
JUDSON: SECOND GENERATION AND BEYOND
MR in Partnership with Anthology Film Archives
6:45pm. Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue.
$10; $8 students/seniors/Friends of MR; $6 Anthology Members

Judson had an impact much larger than its three year existence would suggest. Many artists were deeply influenced by the ground broken by JDT, either directly or indirectly. This screening looks at a work that bears the imprint of Judson but moves beyond the boundaries of that seminal period:

Richard Rutkowski
THE SPACE IN BACK OF YOU
2011, 65 min, digital video.
This highly visual and visceral documentary investigates the creative life of Suzushi Hanayagi, a powerful, innovative, even radical Japanese dancer and choreographer. For over 20 years she was a close collaborator with and major influence on theater legend Robert Wilson, who referred to her simply as “my teacher”. When Wilson discovers Hanayagi living in an old-age home and suffering from Alzheimer’s, Wilson resolves to work with her once again. Poignant witness to the transition of a life from vibrancy to legacy, this film becomes the final collaboration between a great teacher and her most renowned student.

Plus additional surprises!

Monday-Friday October 28-November 2.
International Dance Dialogues: Workshop with Azusa Seyama Prioville.
10-12pm. Gibney Dance Center, Studio 6.

Creating Character Through Movement

By raising awareness of the physical possibilities in the body this workshop will encourage finding richer and more meaningful personal movement. Employing various processes used in dance theater practices we will search where movement starts and push the limits of where it can go.

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.

There Are No Stepbrothers in Dance
I think the statement “there are no stepbrothers in dance” is a paraphrase of something Balanchine said. His point was that one could only say so much in a dance, and yet what a dance can convey is particular and specific to the medium. In this workshop, we will look at the limitations and strengths of the medium in order to become more exact in our choreographic choices and in order to elicit more clarity from the contexts of meaning we create. Bring 3-10 minutes of a complete choreographic work to be presented live either with you as a solo performer or invite your performers. We will also work on developing some specific tools through compositional exercises. Be prepared to also read, talk, debate, listen, and imagine aloud.

An Eco-poetic Approach to Dance Improvisation and Performance
In this movement workshop we will explore awareness and intention through the development of perceptual acuity in relationship to our inner and outer landscapes. We will examine the delicate relationships between our poetic imagination and our sensory systems. The basis of my approach is that composition and performance are ecologically rooted acts. Our imagination grows from where and how we exist. Movement, story, image and gesture are imbedded in the relationships that are evolving all around us. Come ready to dance, perceive, perform and imagine.

technique |tekˈnēk|
noun a way of carrying out a particular task, esp. the execution or performance of an artistic work or a scientific procedure. • skill or ability in a particular field : he has excellent technique | [in sing. ] • a skillful or efficient way of doing or achieving something This class will approach “technique” by redefining notions of strength and virtuosity, valuing subtlety and utilizing mindfulness and self-observation as physical practices. We’ll awaken the brain and the body, learn by expansion rather than concentration, rigorously attend to the present and learn precise, task-oriented, simple and complex movement phrases.
