Movement Research at the Judson Church Fall Festival November 30, 2015

a dialectic of dark and light
Brenda Dixon-Gottschild, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko, Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste and invited guests and audience

What is the historical data, aesthetic memory laid within a particular site? How do we both claim and shed this skin as an act of radical acceptance? How do we simultaneously lift and lean into the weight of history?

Continuing his 2014 exploration of Black Male Revisited: Experimental Representation through the Ephemeral Form, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko in collaboration with scholar Brenda Dixon-Gottschild and sonic artist Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste will craft an evening length opening performance, improvisational jam and celebration at Judson Church that blurs the line between audience and performer. In an attempt to honor and trouble the historical site of Judson Church as a location of worship and experimentation (while allowing limited access to artists who exist on the fringe of the Judson dance experience), all are invited to explore movement, style, heritage, sound, and light in a safe, non-judgmental open environment.

What does the term “somatics” even mean? Can we arrive at consensus around this as an idea, a value, a practice? This event will bring together artists/practitioners of various backgrounds and areas of study to lead the group in experiential practices which will evolve into a collective discussion on the term “somatics” and the impact and resonance of this way of learning and being in the world.

Live stream will begin at 6:15pm.

“A Solo Voice” is an investigation of extended vocal techniques, resonance and pure expression, exploring the relationship between mind and body and the various landscapes it can yield. Through multidimensionality that serves to both provoke and soothe in abstract communication, the voice is presented in its spectrum of natures as it travels with tender intimacy and bold aberrance.
