This project 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.

Rebecca Patek is a New York-based choreographer and performance artist creating work that synthesizes dance, theater, and comedy. Patek is an Artist-in-Residence at Movement Research. She was also awarded a 2010-11 Residency at Dance Theater Workshop (New York Live Arts). She has attended residencies at the Atlantic Center for the Arts and Earthdance (as part of the E|merge Artist Residency). Patek’s work has been presented at The Museum of Arts and Design, The Chocolate Factory, Dance Theater Workshop, 92nd Street Y, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Dance New Amsterdam, The Joyce Soho, Dixon Place, Mulberry Street Theatre, The Tank, AUNTS, Triskelion Arts, Josee Bienvenu Gallery, The Overture Center (Madison WI), Brickyard Pond (NH), and Nexus Foundation for Today’s Art, among other venues. Works commissioned in 2012 include you and i of the storm for the Museum of Arts and Design, and Real Eyes for The Chocolate Factory. Erin Clark is an aerial silks performance artist. She choreographs and performs collaborative and solo pieces that reveal the not so pretty or graceful stories of life, using a notoriously pretty and graceful art form. With an unusual body that is capable of super-human feats of strength but incapable of basic things like walking (the wheelchair is not just a sexy prop), Erin has a taste for these kinds of contradictions and contrasts in emotional expressions that range from the hilarious to the haunting. Since her first aerial workshop with the Aerial Angels in 2009 where she caught the circus bug, she has trained at Flying Dreams Aerial Arts Productions on Saltspring Island, BC, and with Heather Hammond of Helium Aerial Dance in New York City.

Upcoming Workshops and Studies Projects.

The May 1-3 Workshop with Lance Gries has unfortunately been CANCELLED.

Sunday May 5. Studies Project: Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice: A conversation in two parts
2:30-4:30pm
Center for Performance Research

Conceived by Amanda Loulaki and Susan Mar Landau
A Roundtable discussion with Thomas F. DeFrantz, Susan Mar Landau, Andre Lepecki and Katherine Profeta

FREE

The dramaturg as an active participant in the conceiving and making of movement based works is a relatively new and evolving phenomenon, as well as one that can be both mysterious and suspect. Conceived as a two-part event, Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice will explore both the ontology and the workings of dance dramaturgy today. Precluded by a short history on the topic, the first event will bring together a diverse group of working dramaturges to discuss their experiences and the possible implications of their role in the choreographic process. The second event, to take place in the fall, will open the conversation to include choreographers in an in depth discussion on the practice of dramaturgy.

Thursday-Sunday May 15-19. Workshop with Claudia La Rocco: Why I am not a painter.
THU, FRI, SUN 2-5pm
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway

Why I am not a painter
This is a writing workshop. It is open to anyone who wants to play with words, to see what they can do, and how. But it is made with dance-artists in mind. How do words live in time and space, whether on the stage, the page or in the mind? Critical writing, creative writing, performance texts… are they really such different creatures? Does a dancer have a particular way of approaching language? What about a writer who spends so much of her time watching dancers? So many questions. We’ll spend our time looking for answers, individually and as a group.

Classes this week with…

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

Working from the body’s innate intelligence, class will start with simple awareness and coordination exercises influenced by different somatic disciplines to organize the body and prepare us for more technical movement. We will work on remembering and re-wiring organic pathways and explore alternative solutions to our habitual patterns. Class will build in physical intensity, culminating in a chance to put our experiments to the test. Sometimes this will mean phrase work and other times class will stay in a more lab/workshop-like format.
