This Week at Movement Research…

MaximilianBalduzzi_byTxuca

SUNDAY PROCESS LAB with MAXIMILIAN BALDUZZI
March 2 SUN 5-8pm $5
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
How to learn rigorous physical and vocal actions while practicing presence? How to be present during the breaks and the breaths between those actions? We will work with exercises developed in almost 20 years of Balduzzi’s practice that focus on impulse and stop, rhythm, opposition. This training allows participants to become more deeply connected to their own intuitions and impulses and better able to respond to them truthfully, fearlessly, and joyfully. read more

Body Mind World, Movement & Language Improvisation
Sometimes our words don’t have access to what we know in our bones, while our dancing doesn’t have access to what’s on our minds. In this workshop we will explore the synergy between movement and language to engage with subject matter that interests us. The class will include warm-ups to awaken our kinetic juices, and focused stream of consciousness writing to put us in touch with our wild thoughts and observations. We will divide our class time between purely improvising with movement, talking together about whatever has been on our minds, and improvising combining moving and speaking.

Sunday September 16. Judson @ 50:
MR in Residence at the New Museum
Movement Research: Proposals for Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater Fifty Years Later
3pm. New Museum, 235 Bowery.
FREE with RSVP to
info@movementresearch.org
Moderated by Carla Peterson

Prior to tonight’s program, Movement Research (MR) will solicit questions from the greater MR community regarding the imprint that Judson Dance Theater (1962–64) continues to make on contemporary performance. These questions will be shared with the audience, debated, discussed, and voted upon. Ultimately, four questions will be selected by attendees as focus topics for further investigation by artists nominated to lead a series of week-long performance laboratories and open rehearsals at the New Museum. This event is presented as part of “Movement Research in Residence at the New Museum: Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater Fifty Years Later.”

Wednesday September 19. Open Performance.
Featuring works by Martha Brim, Maja Rajenovich & Co, and Marlieke Burghouts.
Moderated by Moriah Evans. **

MR in Partnership with Anthology Film Archives
YVONNE RAINER’S ‘LIVES OF PERFORMERS’
6:30pm. Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue.
$10; $8 students/seniors; $6 Anthology Members

Judson artists themselves were very involved in various mediums, including film. None more so than Yvonne Rainer, who went from choreographer to filmmaker to choreographer again. This screening features her seminal film of a performance of a rehearsal, LIVES OF PERFORMERS, bridging the gap between her extensive performance work and the film work that was soon to follow.

Yvonne Rainer
LIVES OF PERFORMERS
1972, 90 min, 16mm, b&w.

Plus:
Yvonne Rainer
CONNECTICUT REHEARSAL (OF CONTINUOUS PROJECT – ALTERED DAILY)
1969, 40 min,16mm-to-video, b&w. Cinematographer: Michael Fajans.

Saturday October 6. Workshop with Mariangela Lopez.
12-2pm. First Street Green.
FREE

This class is open to everyone interested in sharing movement experiences. We will practice listening to our instincts as movers and disregarding all preconceived ideas of how one “should” move in space. The participants will explore their own creative movement potential by releasing personal memories and perceptions of their own environment by utilizing the power of the group to build a collective experience. This class is about experiencing the joy for moving and dancing to become totally physical and present, yet connected to our internal states.

The Week Ahead. October 3-9, 2011.

Thursday October 6. STUDIES PROJECT: Conversation on Dance and Consciousness
6pm. Gibney Dance Center, 890 Broadway, Studio 4
FREE

Conceived of and Moderated by Vanessa Justice
A conversation among choreographers, philosophers and performers on the nature of consciousness and how dance as an artistic practice acts as experiential research into this fundamentally human yet indeterminate and far-ranging territory. In addition to gathering different perspectives on the subject, some questions will be considered: How does dance affect current philosophical thinking on consciousness? How do choreographers and performers engage with theory on the subject? How have personal experiences and artistic practices contributed to private and collective understanding and development of consciousness? How can these experiences enter into broader discourse on the subject? Participants in this conversation include Alva Noë (philosopher and author of Out of Our Heads), Michelle Boulé (dance artist), Miguel Gutierrez (choreographer), RoseAnne Spradlin (choreographer), and others. Thanks to Gina Gibney Dance Center for the donation of space.

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.
Register HERE.

Workshop with Jonathan Burrows
MONDAY October 31 – WEDNESDAY November 2
12-3pm
Avenue C Studio
$75/$30 drop-in
Writing dance
Choreographer Jonathan Burrows leads a three day workshop investigating choreographic and compositional process, performance and philosophies, questioning how a dance or performance might be made and what it could communicate to somebody watching. Practical work will concentrate on short task-based exercises looking at how to define material and work with time, to hold the attention of an audience and invite them to care what happens next. Sessions will be punctuated also with discussion and viewpoints on other mediums and ways of working, asking all the time what dance can do and what it can’t.
Register HERE.

Workshop with Jane Gabriels
SATURDAY November 5
5-8pm
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway
$30
The Lost, The Found and The Fantasy: Urban Meditation
Through an interdisciplinary approach, participants will work with excavating found images, phrases overheard on the bus, movement studies from the street and found sounds and texts to develop their own response to the city and its current dialogue with us. These found materials are things that pulled you towards them, attracted your attention, even if you are not completely sure why. From this fieldwork material, participants will work in the studio with further writing, movement and installation experiments to explore re-enlivening our city-life. Informal, “instant” showings link what has been found with a larger vision of what could be possible. Participants are asked to come to the studio with a scrap of conversation overheard publicly, a picture of a specific place or person in the city, a gesture or series of gestures that they observed in their everyday walks, a torn piece of text found on the street.
Register HERE.

Open Movement Practice
This open level movement class draws from elements of social, folk, and contemporary dance forms, as well as from ordinary action. Resisting the urge to transform ourselves into blank slates, we will abandon the term ‘neutral’ and uncover our bodies’ inherent knowledge and history. By using sensorial, perceptual, anatomical, spatial and imaginative pathways, we’ll amplify, morph and direct our individual movement patterning. We will play technical structures, improvisational concepts, choreographic frameworks and performing. Class will allow us to continuously activate our bodies through space, while discovering the kinesthetic sensitivity of a dynamic body-in-motion.
