PROSODIC BODY Workshop: Choreoprosodia (the fusion of movement and prosody)
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. Spending time with each of the different phoneme-harmonic-compositions developed for the Phoneme Choir, we will use a ‘scientific methodology’ to differentiate and name how each affects individuals and inform us of their healing and performative properties.

BODY of SOUND
Join an adventure into unmapped ground for voice-movement. Enter the cellular tonal field through vibrational rhythms. Open to sensory warm-ups and restorative presence. Liven to insightful finds that surprise and embrace your fun-loving elf. Respond authentically to stimulating image-sound-language prompts. As we dive into new skillsets, we stir the soundbody and its yearnings, stories, memories, and intentions. We explore individually, with partners, and in the circle. What unfolds? A true gathering of voice-movement vignettes, gateways to personal balance, horizon mind, and performance reach. Beth is available for individual sessions by appt. during her time in NYC. 732.778.3696

Tools for Dance Improvisation

Every joint of our body has its range of movement, there are countless possible combinations. The body contains a great practical knowledge far beyond what the mind is capable of processing, resulting in an ever-changing, fluid sense of orientation that can serve as a sensor for potential movement. Through (group) improvisation with one or more partners, exchanging information through touch, we will take advantage of this phenomenon to create forms, rhythms, movement qualities more sophisticated than our minds could invent. This event is part of International Dance Dialogues (IDD), created and curated by Janet Panetta.

Wednesday January 25. Studies Project: Dance and the Occupy Movement
7:30pm. Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics. 20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor.
FREE
Organized by Abigail Levine
“Exploring an expanded notion of choreography and how it is related to our social and political organization and discovery of ourselves as individuals working within a temporary collective… circling and questioning around ideas of a moving community.” –Movement Research Festival Spring 2011 brochure “Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.”
–Declaration of the Occupation, NYC General Assembly

What are the points of contact between experimental, contemporary dance and the Occupy Movement? As spatial and embodied practice? As social investigation and organization? As improvisation and movement? As agents of change? How do and might these moving communities interact? How do we approach (public and private) space in New York City? Barbara Browning, Paloma McGregor, Clarinda Mac Low, Edisa Weeks, and Daniel Lang-Levitsky open a conversation about this creative political moment.

Wednesday January 25. Open Performance.
8pm. A.R.T./New York South Oxford Space.

There Are No Stepbrothers in Dance
I think the statement “there are no stepbrothers in dance” is a paraphrase of something Balanchine said. His point was that one could only say so much in a dance, and yet what a dance can convey is particular and specific to the medium. In this workshop, we will look at the limitations and strengths of the medium in order to become more exact in our choreographic choices and in order to elicit more clarity from the contexts of meaning we create. Bring 3-10 minutes of a complete choreographic work to be presented live either with you as a solo performer or invite your performers. We will also work on developing some specific tools through compositional exercises. Be prepared to also read, talk, debate, listen, and imagine aloud.

An Eco-poetic Approach to Dance Improvisation and Performance
In this movement workshop we will explore awareness and intention through the development of perceptual acuity in relationship to our inner and outer landscapes. We will examine the delicate relationships between our poetic imagination and our sensory systems. The basis of my approach is that composition and performance are ecologically rooted acts. Our imagination grows from where and how we exist. Movement, story, image and gesture are imbedded in the relationships that are evolving all around us. Come ready to dance, perceive, perform and imagine.

Touch Move Talk Write: open studio practices
This workshop focuses on generating new practices through touching, moving, talking, and writing. We will shape each practice with simple rules and apply different sequences and durations, giving equal time to all four aspects. By pushing the notion of practice to extremes, one begins to understand assumptions about style, body, self, technique, unspoken rules, expertise, etc. etc… The aim is to proliferate unexpected results, to try many things quickly, and to foment revolution. Please don’t come without a notebook and a pen.

Technique
Using the luxury of five continuous days of dancing together, we will take the time to investigate different states of awareness. Each class will be three-fold, beginning with a guided improvisation to inspire the imagination to expand into the unique life of different parts of the body, followed by dancing within technical forms to support our range and work as dancers, and concluding with a phrase that integrates concepts of weight, lightness, initiation and intention. The technical forms and phrase will be specifically structured to build our knowledge of individual physical patterns that may be blocking us from deepening the use of ourselves as artists. In the process of learning a phrase, we can observe how we retain “set” material. The merging of the unconscious life of movement through improvisation and conscious attention to the physical imagination is part of the energizing practice we will explore in each class.

Improvisation as Potential Shamanism
Five days of contemplative embodiment, intensive breathwork, fake healing, endurance shaking, post-contact, disco and séance, all in the attempt to invigorate improvisation practice for dancers, choreographers, and performance makers. Shamanism, in a general usage, refers to the ritual/spiritual practices of working with forces and energies, unseen and poetic, of transforming space and time to shift meaning and perspective, of communicating with the dead or not-human. Contemporary improvisation and performance practices often engages the same intentions. Let’s dance in the borderlands of anti-systemic knowledge, magic, real and fiction, contagion and exchange, and various states of presence. Dance class is a ritual, potentially.

Improvisational “Scores”
In this workshop we will investigate my improvisational technique which I call “Scores.” “Scores” are essentially words, containing images, that we will learn to possess our bodies from head to toe. “Scores” can be physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual. Some “Scores” will possess different body parts. Some “Scores,” which I call “no-no scores,” explore socially-unaccepted content. We will allow these “no-no scores” to travel through the subconscious revealing to us our true opinions about them. We will utilize Releasing Technique in the warm ups revealing to us the capability to fill our “empty” bodies with images. Authentic movement, as a warm up, will guide us through powerful qualities.

INEFFABLE INTANGIBLE SENSATIONAL
This workshop looks at some of the ways in which Miguel Gutierrez approaches a practice of movement and improvisation in his work. Working from the proposition that dance is a mode of perceptual inquiry, and working against the idea of dance as a non-verbal “language,” students will be led through a series of movement explorations that prioritize sensation, non-rational action, and that trigger automatic, unprepared physical response. Some of the questions that guide this workshop are: What does movement “do” and how does it operate as a framework for complicated, nuanced, embodied meaning?
