Movement Research at the Judson Church – November 24, 2014

Featuring works by Cristiane Bouger, Nico Brown, Eleanor Bauer, Sacha Yanow


On the Process- Phloem (Study on Hilst)
Performance Lecture and Diagram by Cristiane Bouger
Music: Toccata & Fugue in D Minor, BWV 565: I. Toccata by J.S. Bach, performed by Helmut Walcha
Cinematography by Johann Stollmeier, Editing by Bruna Michelin
Soundtrack: Composition No.2 “Dies Irae” (Ludus Gravis/Marino Formenti), by Galina Ustvolskaya. Voice record of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, from Trilogy I: Live Not By Lies, by Sergei Miroshnichenko.
This performance lecture is influenced by the poetry and life of Brazilian writer Hilda Hilst (1930-2004). By crafting an open structure inspired by Poems for the Men of Our Time (1974), I share the strategies, doubts and concerns around the construction of this work-in-progress.
Special thanks to Larissa Brandão, Ivan Deyoung-Dominguez, Olga Bilenky, and Instituto Hilda Hilst – IHH.
This work-in-progress was made possible, in part, through the Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Davis/Dauray Family Fund and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.


Choreographed and Performed by Nico Brown
