Classes This Week With…

Jennifer Monson. Dancing Space.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway,
537 Broadway, 4th Floor.
The warm up will use weight and volume to integrate the relationship between internal and external space in our dancing. This will lead into phrase material drawn from the improvisational dances created on Ocracoke Island during the BIRD BRAIN Osprey migration. We will complete the class with improvisations that investigate scale, duration and limitlessness. The class investigates the history of space in our bodies and the imaginative possibilities of dancing into new spaces.

Stacy Matthew Spence. Morning Class.
Tuesday and Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

This technique class begins with explorations of the body that allow us to discover and notice the use of weight and momentum, clear alignment, clarity of initiation, and direction of energy. From there the class will build upon itself to more complex coordinations that lead to an opening of the body and an expansion of possibilities as we move through movement material.

Maggie Bennett and Walter Dundervill In Practice and Public Conversation:
THU December 13 1-4pm

Bennett will engage in research around aspects of her current body of work. Questions/areas of interest in her current process pertain to: visual perspective as symbolic form, tension/application of construction and ritual, a triad of the ethereal body/landscape/architecture. These activities are possibly towards a choreography, definitely existing as installation, and dependent on collaboration (with visual artist Liliana Dirks-Goodman and lighting system design with Megan Byrne).

A Slide Lecture by Barbara Moore.

6:30pm. Anthology Film Archives, 32 2nd Avenue.
$10/$8 students/seniors/Friends of Movement Research/$6 Anthology Members

Judson Dance Theater is renowned as the seedbed of post-modern dance. The performances and activity that transpired, however, encompassed a wide variety of creative personalities and styles. Non-dancers such as visual artists and musicians were an influential, integrated contingent and active collaborators with trained dancers and each other. Audiences in the close-knit art scene, much smaller and geographically cohesive than it is today, also represented a diverse cross-section of New York’s creative communities.

This slide lecture, composed of historic photographs by Peter Moore, mines his remarkable archive for evidence of this inter-connectedness both within Judson Dance Theater itself and in relation to various artistic practices outside of the group proper.

Classes This Week With…

Kayvon Pourazar. Morning  Class .
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway,
537 Broadway, 4th Floor.
This class will focus on allowing the inherent dynamic and organizational logic of the moving body to become more present in our dancing. We will encourage our instructive and directive intentions to succumb their influence to a listening and responding/responsible self. Our warm up will include physical situations and exercises that will help us understand and become familiar with our range of effective force, momentum, coordination, weight and balance. In turn, we will be prepared to dive into phrase material that emphasizes kinetic and energetic simplicity within more complex and multilayered forms.

Monday December 3. Movement Research Fall Festival 2012 Studies Project:
Let Me In Let Me In Or I’ll Blow This House Down.

Curators on Process and the Matter of Inclusion.
Part of the Movement Research Fall Festival 2012: back to basic.
7pm. Josie’s, 520 East 6th Street (between Avenues A and B).
Moderated by Juliette Mapp and Jen Rosenblit
FREE

To feel a part of something. Communal, to have community. To be asked, invited in, to ask to be invited in. Access, entry. While the role of curator and the process of curation holds as much artistry as the making of dance and performance, we hone in on an equally important need for a touch of transparency surrounding the presentation of dance and the body. What issues and concerns arise inside of a shifting community where representation is crucial for belonging and sustainable support? What are we doing to reach out to more artists? Where are those artists? Who are those artists? What are the complexities that arise while supporting the sustainability of an artist? What responsibility do we have to an idea of cultivating and supporting “newness?” Where is the body inside all of this? How do we digest being on the inside or outside of something spiritually, aesthetically, emotionally and academically?

Participants include:
Ben Pryor/American Realness
Laurie Berg, Liliana Dirks-Goodman/AUNTS
Rebecca Brooks
Barbara Bryan
Matthew Lyons/The Kitchen

We are holograms where each part is a whole. We are quadratic when we answer questions with neither a yes nor a no. We are organized when we drop $200 on the complete Kvissle desk organizer set from Ikea including cable management casket, letter tray and ubiquitous box with cork lid, set of 4. Drawing on my extensive work with Anne Teresa deKeersmaeker’s Rosas as well as a host of others, this workshop will take a look what we’re doing with all of our dancing stuff. What’s my material? What’s a tool? Am I building something? Where can i put it? Does that make me a craftsman? Can all of it be laser rendered holographically, smudged in to so many shades of gray or finely dismembered and stored in sleek interlocking cork boxes, set of 4?

Classes This Week With…

DD Dorvillier. A Morning Thing .
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

Some daily practice in the morning, to wake up, or feel up, or tender up, or just get into your day, or your week, or your/our entire future. A little different every day, warming up with some SRT-based, fake MB-based, semi-aerobics, ballet, and mofongo yoga. Depends on us. Then an hour devoted to serious moving with eyes closed in partners, with brief exchanges of talking about our experience.

Stacy Matthew Spence. Morning Class.
