SUNDAY PROCESS LAB with VANESSA ANSPAUGH
March 16 SUN 5-8pm $5
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
Archiving the present
This workshop considers movement-based performance as a tool for broadening ones own artistic practice. Starting from “now” we will explore the myriad understandings of presence. We will look to the sensorial, relational, personal, political, seasonal, annual etc. to uncover the layers of what constitutes “this moment.” Bringing the outside in and the inside out we will make a piece together in 3 hours. We will construct, compose, dismantle and play, coating layer upon layer to investigate the idea of “dance as a document” of our time spent together.

TUNING SCORES Laboratory – Composition, communication, and the sense of imagination
A multi-sensorial approach to the questions: what do we ‘see’ when we look at dance? what do we ‘see’ from within the dance?’ The scores offer inner and outer communication tools and practices that make apparent the ways each of us sense and make sense of movement. A playful and rigorous dialogue-in-action about space, time, movement, and the innate desire to compose our experience. Creators/Performers in any discipline (dance, music, visual art, theater, science, engineering, farming) are welcome.

Classes this week with…

rotator_Michelle+Ori
Ori Flomin. Morning Class 
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10am-12pm. $14
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
The class encourages students to increase their movement possibilities and take risks in dancing by maximizing the benefits of the warmed-up body. The warm-up moves smoothly from floor to standing with a strong focus on anatomy to strengthen connections of correct alignment with an increase of fluidity in the joints.. Dancers will develop an understanding of the connections between their body and the floor, and will learn how to use momentum and breath to explore physically-full dancing with the least amount of muscular tension. During phrase work, dancers will learn how to incorporate information from the warm-up to execute more complicated sequences.

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

We’ll look at different ways of approaching ‘dance technique’… energy systems, physical systems, architectural-object-spatial relationships, contact and non-contact partner and solo improvisations. I take my current somatic, dance, and performance interests and apply them to a movement practice. A maximally informed approach to dancing. A space of respectful, creative permission for everyone’s body. A time to really let things move in all senses of the word… in relationship with and beyond oneself.

rotator_JeremyNelson

Afternoon Classes with Jeremy Nelson.
October 14-18 Monday – Friday 12:30pm-2:30pm
Avenue C Studio, 55 Avenue C
$14 per class, Movement Research Class Cards applicable
The workshop will draw on Nelson’s 25 years of continuing study in the work of Barbara Mahler and Susan Klein, and by more recent studies in other techniques such as Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais Method® and Body-Mind Centering®. We will begin with simple exercises and stretches that encourage mobility and suppleness in the superficial muscles, establish clear connections and directions through the bones, and create a dynamic and weighted relationship with the floor. The class will also incorporate a variety of approaches including some improvisation and hands-on work in partners that help deepen our awareness and give us the opportunity to really experience some of these ideas in a physical way. We will then take our work into very simple activities and movements in order to try and integrate this new awareness into our body’s movement patterns, and then build up to phrases of movement that involve moving more fully and dynamically.

rotator_SPL_AntoniaBaehr

Sunday Process Lab with Antonia Baehr
Sunday, October 20  5-8pm
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
$5
In this workshop, Antonia Baehr proposes to share an artistic practice around the performance LAUGH. It is for all public. LAUGH is a piece about laughing as laughing. For the length of the piece Antonia Baehr explores this expression as a sovereign entity, in separation from causal baggage; jokes, tickles, narrative, humor, joy, looking at the thing itself: the sound and shape, the music, choreography and drama, the rhythm and the gesture of laughter. Comedy is not her goal, but contamination is an unavoidable by-product that sometimes contagiously trades sides of the ‘fourth wall’.

Upcoming Workshop.

Workshops and Studies Projects This Week.

Wednesday April 17. Studies Project: “Pushing Boundaries.”
6:15pm
Gibney Dance Center
Conceived by Ori Flomin
With panelists Arthur Aviles, Jennifer Wright Cook, Colleen Thomas, Larissa Velez-Jackson and more
Moderated by Moira Brennan
FREE

Much value is placed on the idea of artwork that is at the cutting edge, with the words “pushing boundaries” emphasized in grants, applications and curating language. This conversation examines what might be meant by “pushing boundaries”? How important is it in the creative process and its outcome? Is the point of view of the artist different from the one of the audience when determining something as “pushing boundaries”? What assumptions or cultural contexts are assumed to establish these boundaries? Are there other ways to value contemporary work?

April 12-20. Workshop with Larissa Velez-Jackson.

Embodying and Exchanging Energy
This workshop will explore how individuals and groups embody and exchange “energy.” We will keep an open mind about how energy is present, sensed, and a source in us: inspiration, creativity, motivation, connection, collaboration, presence, emotion, spirituality – energy forms that exist in our physical and non physical experience, shaping our interactions. Guided experiences and improvisational forms bring our heightened awareness and dimensional bodies into a potent energetic state to create a supportive and collaborative environment, leading us to shared dancing, creativity, and discourse.

Classes this week with…

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

Working from the body’s innate intelligence, class will start with simple awareness and coordination exercises influenced by different somatic disciplines to organize the body and prepare us for more technical movement. We will work on remembering and re-wiring organic pathways and explore alternative solutions to our habitual patterns. Class will build in physical intensity, culminating in a chance to put our experiments to the test. Sometimes this will mean phrase work and other times class will stay in a more lab/workshop-like format.

Jon Kinzel. Technique / EXERCISES IN COMPOSITION.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

This class is designed to access multiple threads at once such as greater range of motion and articulation, isolated and momentum-driven movement forms, rhythmic and kinesthetic intelligence, sense of scale, ascent and descent, injury prevention, alignment, personal and musical expression, and dancing that supports a balanced square orientation over a vertical axis while traversing through space, and shifting off center, in a mode that reflects a play between athleticism, performance, and a particular disposition.

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

Class will be taught by Kayvon Pourazar on April 16 & 18. This class will focus on alignment, weight, clarity of momentum, and breath. Using influences from Chi Gong, Alexander, yoga, modern and postmodern constructs to release the joints, connect to the floor, lengthen the spine, activate the senses and warm the body. We continue the exploration in the second half through a combination of improvisation, phrase material and other choreographic structures to expand the experience of dancing.

What is My Work? A workshop based on the format of a peer panel review
Facilitated by Larissa Velez-Jackson
Much value is placed on the idea of artwork that is at the cutting edge, with the words “pushing boundaries” emphasized in grants, applications and curating language. This conversation examines what might be meant by “pushing boundaries”? How important is it in the creative process and its outcome? Is the point of view of the artist different from the one of the audience when determining something as “pushing boundaries”? What assumptions or cultural contexts are assumed to establish these boundaries? Are there other ways to value contemporary work?

Wednesday April 17. Studies Project: “Pushing Boundaries.”
6:15pm
Gibney Dance Center
Conceived by Ori Flomin
With panelists Arthur Aviles, Jennifer Wright Cook, Colleen Thomas, Larissa Velez-Jackson and more
Moderated by Moira Brennan

Classes this week with…

Jon Kinzel. Technique / EXERCISES IN COMPOSITION.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

This class is designed to access multiple threads at once such as greater range of motion and articulation, isolated and momentum-driven movement forms, rhythmic and kinesthetic intelligence, sense of scale, ascent and descent, injury prevention, alignment, personal and musical expression, and dancing that supports a balanced square orientation over a vertical axis while traversing through space, and shifting off center, in a mode that reflects a play between athleticism, performance, and a particular disposition.

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

Class will be taught by Kayvon Pourazar on April 16 & 18. This class will focus on alignment, weight, clarity of momentum, and breath. Using influences from Chi Gong, Alexander, yoga, modern and postmodern constructs to release the joints, connect to the floor, lengthen the spine, activate the senses and warm the body. We continue the exploration in the second half through a combination of improvisation, phrase material and other choreographic structures to expand the experience of dancing.

SHAKE/WALK
Taking two everyday forms of movement, we will allow these forms to disorganize within, and to be disorganizing of, our bodies. This process will lead us into understandings of function and form and also into expressive potentials that arise within experimental states of disorder. As we explore in solo, duet, and ensemble improvisations, moving periodically in contact and/or with eyes closed, the lines between states of order and disorder will be at times stark and at others blurred. The sensations that arise within this unstable and unbound matrix range from relaxing to energizing, from disorienting to freeing.
