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.

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.

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?

Thursday-Friday November 8-9. Chez Bushwick Presents Movement Research Artists-in-Residence at CPR.
8pm. Center for Performance Research, 361 Manhattan Avenue.

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.
$75 SOLD OUT! Email info@movementresearch.org with your name, phone number, and email address to join the waitlist.
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?

In 1982, Danspace Project and Bennington College collaborated on “The Judson Project,” a series of performances dedicated to reconstructing Judson-era works with 14 Judson choreographers, including Edward Bhartonn, Remy Charlip, Lucinda Childs, Philip Corner, Brian De Palma, Judith Dunn, Simone Forti, Deborah Hay, Aileen Passloff, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, Carolee Schneemann, Elaine Summers, and James Waring. The Bennington College Judson Project also filmed interviews with many of the artists that were central to Judson Dance Theater. Danspace Project and Movement Research share a selection of these rarely-seen reconstructions and interviews in a special afternoon screening.

FREE with RSVP to
info@movementresearch.org
Moderated by Carla Peterson

Prior to tonight’s program, Movement Research (MR) will solicit questions from the greater MR community regarding the imprint that Judson Dance Theater (1962–64) continues to make on contemporary performance. These questions will be shared with the audience, debated, discussed, and voted upon. Ultimately, four questions will be selected by attendees as focus topics for further investigation by artists nominated to lead a series of week-long performance laboratories and open rehearsals at the New Museum. This event is presented as part of “Movement Research in Residence at the New Museum: Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater Fifty Years Later.”

Wednesday September 19. Open Performance.
Featuring works by Martha Brim, Maja Rajenovich & Co, and Marlieke Burghouts.
Moderated by Moriah Evans. **

YVONNE RAINER’S ‘LIVES OF PERFORMERS’
6:30pm. Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue.
$10; $8 students/seniors; $6 Anthology Members

Judson artists themselves were very involved in various mediums, including film. None more so than Yvonne Rainer, who went from choreographer to filmmaker to choreographer again. This screening features her seminal film of a performance of a rehearsal, LIVES OF PERFORMERS, bridging the gap between her extensive performance work and the film work that was soon to follow.

Yvonne Rainer
LIVES OF PERFORMERS
1972, 90 min, 16mm, b&w.

Plus:
Yvonne Rainer
CONNECTICUT REHEARSAL (OF CONTINUOUS PROJECT – ALTERED DAILY)
1969, 40 min,16mm-to-video, b&w. Cinematographer: Michael Fajans.

Saturday October 6. Workshop with Mariangela Lopez.
12-2pm. First Street Green.
FREE

This class is open to everyone interested in sharing movement experiences. We will practice listening to our instincts as movers and disregarding all preconceived ideas of how one “should” move in space. The participants will explore their own creative movement potential by releasing personal memories and perceptions of their own environment by utilizing the power of the group to build a collective experience. This class is about experiencing the joy for moving and dancing to become totally physical and present, yet connected to our internal states.

The Week Ahead. July 30 – August 5, 2012.
