SUNDAY PROCESS LAB with JOANNA KOTZE AND SHELLEY SENTER
March 30 SUN 5-8pm $5
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
Joanna Kotze and Shelley Senter will come together to share their ideas, practices and processes in this collaborative lab. Joanna delves into the design of the body and its potential within any given moment, looking at the forces through the legs to access a wide range of movement, challenging habits and discovering new performance possibilities. Shelley’s interests include critiquing sensation, spatial support, looking at movement as behavior as well as architecture, and addressing un/sub/consciousness, particularly in “the use of the eyes (notice I did not say ‘gaze.’)” Through both movement and dialogue, Joanna and Shelley will exchange information with you and each other about how movement, specificity and potential in the body play important roles in their teaching and creative process.

WORKSHOP with STEPANIE SKURA
Open Source Forms: Freedom + Rigor + Courage
April 2-4 WED-FRI 2:30-5:30pm $100
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
Cross-fertilizations and deep commonalities of releasing technique and creative process, with an ultimate goal of individual creative empowerment. Tools to navigate the subconscious, open the voice — literally and figuratively — trust our inner world, access technique as resource and find courage to transcend it. Skura instigated Open Source Forms in 2009, drawing from decades of research and practice in radical composition techniques, and 12 years as core Skinner Releasing teacher.

Created by Stephanie Fungsang and Jeremy Finch
Music: Kaki King, Four Tet

Stephanie Fungsang and Jeremy Finch graduated from Wesleyan University and have collaborated since then to create art and movement, sharing works in NYC, CT, and MA. Stephanie began studying movement improv/performance in Ohio; has worked with Alison Chase/Performance, Pilobolus Creative Services, Agua Dulce Dance, among others; teaches at Ishta Yoga. Gratitude to Mom; to JAF for helping make this long-distance work happen (the dance & the partnership). She’s thrilled to be participating in MR at Judson. www.stephaniefungsang.com. Jeremy became interested in dance in college because it combined his artistic and athletic interests. He lived in NYC from 2009-2011 and felt grateful to work with Benjamin Ford Asriel, Arthur Aviles, Tatyana Tenenbaum, and Brandin Steffensen (among others). He lives in Boston and still loves circus arts and contact improv. You can check out his comics and a self-produced dance film he made (Sketchbook) at www.jeremyafinch.com. He’s happy to perform again with Stephanie.

the dance that i cannot do (Excerpt, Work-in-progress)
Created and performed by Thea Patterson
Creative team: Peter Trosztmer, Lois Brown, and Katie Ward
Music: Tchaikovsky, Puccini
Supported by The Margie Gillis Foundation, Playwrights Workshop Montreal, and the Centre Chorégraphique Circuit East

Thea Patterson is a Montreal-based choreographer and performer. This excerpt looks at, among other things, (re)finding the dance in a “non-dancing body” or a body that holds the memory of dance but, due to a slow deterioration of physical abilities, is not able to DO that dance anymore. Situated within a performance practice aimed not at the achievement of great acts of physical prowess but in researching how to dance through an accumulation of behaviors and tasks, I attempt to reconcile with a new definition my dancing body.

The Week Ahead. January 28-February 3.

This Week at Movement Research… Morning Classes are back, with John Jasperse and Juliette Mapp! Thanks to everyone who came out for Winter MELT 2013!

Monday January 28. Movement Research at the Judson Church.
8pm. Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South.
NO RESERVATIONS and ADMISSION IS FREE

Seating is limited, so arrive early.
Featuring works by: Stephanie Fungsang, Sari Nordman, Thea Patterson, and Molly Poerstel.

Classes This Week With…

John Jasperse. Movement Practice.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
MON and FRI at Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.
TUES and THURS at Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

Using the morning technique class structure as a model, this class will focus on dance as a physical, conceptual and experiential practice, with an emphasis on the cultivation of presence inside of the forms. Class will begin with imagery and gentle preparation culled from various bodywork modalities that access our awareness of the organs, the skeleton, gravity and energetic pathways through the architecture of the body and into the space. Class will expand into technical exercises, choreographic structures, improvisations and performance constructs, exploring ways to engage with the material through precise and imaginative means.

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

Using improvisational and set warm-ups we will focus on the volume and weight inside the body and its relationship to the floor. Exercises that bring awareness to the feet, spine, and pelvic floor encourage the feeling of release in the limbs, allowing us to fall and suspend off-center, simultaneously finding a grounded flexible base of support. Using these physical tools we will explore sensation, instinct, and the inherent musicality inside the body, phrasing. All the while dancing we will work toward a more grounded and direct approach to movement.
