Curators on Process and the Matter of Inclusion.
Part of the Movement Research Fall Festival 2012: back to basic.
7pm. Josie’s, 520 East 6th Street (between Avenues A and B).
Moderated by Juliette Mapp and Jen Rosenblit

To feel a part of something. Communal, to have community. To be asked, invited in, to ask to be invited in. Access, entry. While the role of curator and the process of curation holds as much artistry as the making of dance and performance, we hone in on an equally important need for a touch of transparency surrounding the presentation of dance and the body. What issues and concerns arise inside of a shifting community where representation is crucial for belonging and sustainable support? What are we doing to reach out to more artists? Where are those artists? Who are those artists? What are the complexities that arise while supporting the sustainability of an artist? What responsibility do we have to an idea of cultivating and supporting “newness?” Where is the body inside all of this? How do we digest being on the inside or outside of something spiritually, aesthetically, emotionally and academically?

Participants include:
Ben Pryor/American Realness

We are holograms where each part is a whole. We are quadratic when we answer questions with neither a yes nor a no. We are organized when we drop $200 on the complete Kvissle desk organizer set from Ikea including cable management casket, letter tray and ubiquitous box with cork lid, set of 4. Drawing on my extensive work with Anne Teresa deKeersmaeker’s Rosas as well as a host of others, this workshop will take a look what we’re doing with all of our dancing stuff. What’s my material? What’s a tool? Am I building something? Where can i put it? Does that make me a craftsman? Can all of it be laser rendered holographically, smudged in to so many shades of gray or finely dismembered and stored in sleek interlocking cork boxes, set of 4?

Classes This Week With…

DD Dorvillier. A Morning Thing .
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

Some daily practice in the morning, to wake up, or feel up, or tender up, or just get into your day, or your week, or your/our entire future. A little different every day, warming up with some SRT-based, fake MB-based, semi-aerobics, ballet, and mofongo yoga. Depends on us. Then an hour devoted to serious moving with eyes closed in partners, with brief exchanges of talking about our experience.

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

This technique class begins with explorations of the body that allow us to discover and notice the use of weight and momentum, clear alignment, clarity of initiation, and direction of energy. From there the class will build upon itself to more complex coordinations that lead to an opening of the body and an expansion of possibilities as we move through movement material.
