Accumulation – Influx 32
Conceived and performed by Cristiane Bouger
Costume Design by Babatunde Ajiboye
Video Photography by Flemming Fynsk
Sound Design by Cristiane Bouger and Steve Fontaine (songs excerpts by Leonard Cohen, Gal Costa (Jards Macalé and Waly Salomão), Patti Smith (Allen Ginsberg), Nico, Nick Cave (Lennon-McCartney), Cartola and Ludwig van Beethoven)
In this study I investigate ways to give visibility to the intangible accumulation of memories and information processed by my body. Understanding how presence and intimacy unveil along the performance is part of my research.
32 is the number of days since I started crafting the structure shared with you tonight.
Thank you to Larissa Brandão, K.J. Holmes and Kávé Expresso Bar and Event Space (Bushwick).
This project was made possible, in part, through the Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Jerome Foundation and the Davis/Dauray Family Fund.

These fragments
Staging/dance: Diana Sherwood, Music (if used): Sigur Ros.
Over the last several years, I have begun to explore and embody the works of the early German Expressionist dancers as well as 20th Century dancers from the U.S. as seen on film. I have done this not to reconstruct historical dances, but to learn the earlier dancers’ interpretation and translation of the world in physical language and to then re-translate this into a contemporary context. This exploration has made me more acutely aware of partnering space and the architectural elements in movement and visual images these may create, than before. My work tonight explores these ideas.

Diana Sherwood has been a member of the Rudy Perez Performance Ensemble and currently divides her time between NY and LA.

4Chambers (performance installation in-progress)
Choreography: Jody Oberfelder created in collaboration with dancers:
Zachary Denison, Michelle Jongeneel, Joey Kipp, Mary Madsen, Mercedes Searer, and Jake Szczypek.
Music: Richard Einhorn, Jonathan Melville Pratt
4Chambers will be sited on Governors Island this summer. The piece takes place in four discreet rooms referencing the heart. Tonight we give a taste of two of these chambers blended together for Judson.

Jody Oberfelder has been making work in New York for several decades. She has sung in a rock band, choreographed an array of boldly physical dances including ‘Approaching Climax’, ‘Throb’, and ‘The Story Thus Far’, ‘The Title Comes Last’, and directed theater and opera, most recently, Stravinsky’s ‘A Soldier’s Tale’ and Purcell’s ‘Dido & Aeneas’. With a keen eye for the visual, she has also created eight dance films. 4Chambers is her first installation piece. It will premiere this summer on Governors Island for three weekends in July. Transforming Officers House #15 into a four chambered heart with arteries and veins, participants will monitor their own heart while traversing through it. As we’re still working on the piece–any feedback would be greatly appreciated (jody@jodyoberfelder.com). We’re also looking for volunteers to be part of our Governors Island performances. jodyoberfelder.com

Classes this week with…

Levi Gonzalez. Morning Class.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

No class May 27
Using the morning technique class structure as a model, this class will focus on dance as a physical, conceptual, and experiential practice, with an emphasis on the cultivation of presence inside of the forms. Class will begin with imagery and gentle preparation culled from various bodywork modalities that access our awareness of the organs, the skeleton, gravity, and energetic pathways through the architecture of the body and into the space. Class will expand into technical exercises, choreographic structures, improvisations, and performance constructs, exploring ways to engage with the material through precise and imaginative means. No class May 27.

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

Using improvisational and set warm-ups, we will focus on the volume and weight inside the body and its relationship to the floor. Exercises that bring awareness to the feet, spine, and pelvic floor encourage the feeling of release in the limbs, allowing us to fall and suspend off-center, simultaneously finding a grounded flexible base of support. Using these physical tools, we will explore sensation, instinct, and the inherent musicality inside the body, phrasing. All the while dancing, we will work toward a more grounded and direct approach to movement.

Rebecca Patek and Erin Clark
Music by Diamond Bones and Alexandre St. Onge
This project was made possible, in part, through the Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Davis/Dauray Family Fund and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Rebecca Patek is a New York-based choreographer and performance artist creating work that synthesizes dance, theater, and comedy. Patek is an Artist-in-Residence at Movement Research. She was also awarded a 2010-11 Residency at Dance Theater Workshop (New York Live Arts). She has attended residencies at the Atlantic Center for the Arts and Earthdance (as part of the E|merge Artist Residency). Patek’s work has been presented at The Museum of Arts and Design, The Chocolate Factory, Dance Theater Workshop, 92nd Street Y, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Dance New Amsterdam, The Joyce Soho, Dixon Place, Mulberry Street Theatre, The Tank, AUNTS, Triskelion Arts, Josee Bienvenu Gallery, The Overture Center (Madison WI), Brickyard Pond (NH), and Nexus Foundation for Today’s Art, among other venues. Works commissioned in 2012 include you and i of the storm for the Museum of Arts and Design, and Real Eyes for The Chocolate Factory. Erin Clark is an aerial silks performance artist. She choreographs and performs collaborative and solo pieces that reveal the not so pretty or graceful stories of life, using a notoriously pretty and graceful art form. With an unusual body that is capable of super-human feats of strength but incapable of basic things like walking (the wheelchair is not just a sexy prop), Erin has a taste for these kinds of contradictions and contrasts in emotional expressions that range from the hilarious to the haunting. Since her first aerial workshop with the Aerial Angels in 2009 where she caught the circus bug, she has trained at Flying Dreams Aerial Arts Productions on Saltspring Island, BC, and with Heather Hammond of Helium Aerial Dance in New York City.
