$10; $8 students/seniors/Friends of MR; $6 Anthology Members
JDT was not exclusively a dance movement. Artists of various disciplines participated in the movement that came to be known as JDT, including filmmakers. This screening highlights some of the many collaborations between Judson artists and film artists who were pushing at the boundaries of both forms.
Films will include:
Jonas Mekas CUP/SAUCER/TWO DANCERS/RADIO (1965/83, 23 min, 16mm)
With Kenneth King & Phoebe Neville.
Simone Forti CLOTHS (fragment) (1967, 5 min, 16mm-to-video)

Tuesday November 6. Judson @ 50: George Manupelli’s CRY DR. CHICAGO
9pm. Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue.
$10; $8 students/seniors/Friends of MR; $6 Anthology Members
Cry Dr. Chicago. 1971, 90 minutes, 16mm. Preserved by Anthology Film Archives with support from the National Film Preservation Foundation. Lab work by Cineric, Inc., and Trackwise.
In Manupelli’s wonderfully cracked feature, which had fallen almost entirely into oblivion when Anthology was able to revive and preserve it in 2008, Dr. Chicago (played by venerable composer Alvin Lucier) is a sex-change surgeon on the run from the law, forever on his way to Sweden and always out to make a buck. Along for the ride are his faithful companions Sheila Marie (the delightfully zonked-out Mary Ashley) and Steve (brilliantly, and silently, portrayed by the great dancer Steve Paxton, a founding member of Judson Dance Theater). By far one of the most enjoyable feature films to come out of the 1960s underground era.

Wednesday November 7. Open Performance.
8pm. A.R.T./NY, South Oxford Space, 138 S Oxford St, Brooklyn.
FREE!

Featuring works by Emily Alpren, Brendan Drake. white road Dance Media, and Hadar Ahuvia.

7-10pm. New Museum, 235 Bowery.
ALL TICKETS Now $12 (New Museum Member Price)

Co-presented with Goethe-Institut New York with support from the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation
7pm Performance by Mårten Spångberg
In Powered by Emotion MÃ¥rten SpÃ¥ngberg reconstructs the Goldberg Variations, the fantastic dance improvisations by the American dance legend Steve Paxton, and several songs from the Buena Vista Social Club.Paxton himself said, SpÃ¥ngberg’s piece actually stands alone, more than being a reconstruction of anything particular. Can one reconstruct an improvisation? This question is not so interesting as the result of SpÃ¥ngberg’s ‘translation process’ itself.
Discussion to follow immediately after the performance: In the second part of the evening, moderated by Claude Wampler, Spångberg will be joined by artists including DD Dorvillier, and will address the following question: How does the imprint of Judson Dance Theater function within the contexts of European and American performance respectively?

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.

Classes this week with: Levi Gonzalez, Janet Panetta, Barbara Mahler, Jennifer Nugent, Irene Dowd, Rebecca Brooks, Karl Anderson, Jen Rosenblit, Shakti Smith, Rebecca Bone, Jesse Johnson, Mark Messer, Brandin Steffensen.

Upcoming

Tuesday-Wednesday November 20-21 . Workshop with Deborah Hay.
10am-1pm. Avenue C Studio.

What if our attention is not on what we do onstage but how we can be continuously enlarging our experience of dance as we dance?

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.

SEEING : REPEATING : RITUAL
How do we construct our visual field and how is movement constructed by our visual field? How does perception- visual, aural, olfactory- influence movement? How can we achieve heightened perception (without mushrooms)? What is the role of repetition? And how does the connection between perception and movement relate to certain kinds of cultural rituals? This spring I will be co-teaching a course with an anthropologist at Wesleyan University. While the explorations in this workshop will be purely movement-based, they will grow out of the development of this course and the included readings and discussions about ritual, shamanism, and medical anthropology.

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.

$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.

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.
