Questionable Journeys: A workshop on the relationship between inquiry and practice in the making of performance
“What can be analyzed in my work, or criticized, are the questions.” (John Cage) In this workshop participants will address questions related to their own choreographic practice while simultaneously being challenged to step outside of their current path of inquiry in order to return to it with fresh artistic perspectives. During the workshop, each participant will develop a short work in progress. Through a process of sharing work, constructive feedback, and group discussion, participants will formulate and revise questions of artistic inquiry to further and deepen their practical investigation.

 

Susan Mar Landau is a New York City based dramaturg and interdisciplinary artist. As a dramaturg she has collaborated with choreographers Vanessa Anspaugh, Aretha Aoki, Maximilian Balduzzi, Daria Faïn, Levi Gonzalez, Emily Johnson and Carlos Maria Romero. Landau holds a BA from Hampshire College, a MA in Performance Design and Practice from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of London, and a Graduate Certificate in Performance and Interactive Media Arts from CUNY.

MELT “Movie Night” with Jennifer Monson

Tuesday August 5. 7pm.
Gibney Dance Center, 890 Broadway.
Free and open to all.

Jennifer Monson will be showing documentation from the Movement Research Festival, Spring 2014 fallow time.

If you came to the festival please come to discuss what has been generated from the fallow time experience and share your own documentation. If you weren’t able to attend the festival, come to the movie night to joint the conversation around the themes and concepts of the festival. We will be showing video, photos and written documents generated during and after fallow time. We will also distribute a zine that came out of the festival experience.

Hosted by a different MELT teaching artist each week, the MELT “Movie Night” series features work that inspires, influences, engages and/or represents that artist’s current creative process and artistic concerns. The screenings provide an opportunity for a more in-depth dialogue between students and teachers beyond the workshop setting, as well as a chance to connect in a more social environment.

between us/the space/between us:
speculations on spectatorship

Placing Rancière’s “Emancipated Spectator” center stage, in tonight’s discussion we will move back and forth through time and texts to reflect on the “theater” and political philosophy’s parallel and, at times, collaborative exploration of spectatorship. Revisiting the territory both theorists and artists alike have mapped, we will cast our gaze and our conversation both from and towards the space of the spectator.

Who is a dance?
In this evening’s discussion we will come together to re-contextualize the “authorship question” within the context of contemporary dance. In an art form that is historically simultaneously ephemeral, embodied, and perceived and produced by a plurality of bodies, how and by whom is subjectivity and authorship performed, and towards what ends? Of the work we see and make today, might the question to ask be not “What is an Author?” but rather “Who is a dance?”

Podcast: Studies Project: Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice Part 2

Part 2 of the 2013 Movement Research Studies Project: Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice
Conceived by Amanda Loulaki and Susan Mar Landau
Gibney Dance Center, Octover 1, 2013
With Panelists: Annie Dorsen, Katherine Profeta, David Thomson, Talvin Wilks, Susan Mar Landau, and Vanessa Anspaugh

Listen to the Podcast here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/movementresearch/10.1.13_Dramaturgy_SP_Podcast.mp3

This Studies Project Discusses the relatively new and evolving phenomenon of a dramaturg as an active participant in the conceiving and making of movement-based works. Conceived as a two-part event, Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice speakers explored both the ontology and the workings of dance dramaturgy today. This second event brought together dramaturgs, choreographers and dancers to engage in an in-depth conversation on the experience, effect and possible implications of the presence of the dramaturg in the choreographic process.

Part 1 of the Dramaturgy Studies Project took place on May 5th 2013 and is available as a podcast at:

First Street Green.
FREE
This class is for those struggling with health issues of their own or that of a loved one. We use movement and somatic practices to support healing processes. Sourcing from both western and eastern traditions, we will play with movement, breath, sound and imagery to encourage self-empowerment as it relates to our health and well-being.

Sunday Process Lab with Anna Sperber.
Sunday October 6 5:00pm-8:00pm.
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.
$5
Beginning with a practice of solo improvisations, of seeing and allowing ourselves to be seen; letting the internal logic of the body come to the forefront; dancing for and with each other as a method towards the development of an intimate understanding of each other’s physicality and imaginative identity, while asking how the material interfaces with the space as a compositional container. how do we respond to it? how do we fill it? We will make material and then make decisions that react to what has surfaced. We will repeat a focused cycle of action and reaction, watching for an identity to emerge.

Upcoming Workshop.

Authentic Movement with David Hurwith.
October 8-10 Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday  7-9pm. 
October 12 Saturday 12-4pm.
Gibney Dance Center, 890 Broadway.
$75 Full workshop, $40 Saturday, $14 per class (Tue-Wed-Thu).
Authentic Movement
A witness and a mover agree to enter a mystery. The mover, with eyes closed, self-directed, explores impulses in the present moment. The witness with eyes open watches the movement and holds the intention to support the mover’s experience. Personal imagery, sensation, emotion and the ineffable emerge to consciousness with movement as the source. Authentic Movement provides a powerful context to discover meaning or non-meaning from experience and to retrieve seminal material for the artist. After moving and witnessing, a process of speaking, moving, drawing or writing recalls the experiences. The ritual has the intention of maintaining the internal efficacy of what just happened.

Classes this week with…

Joanna Kotze. Morning Class.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Movement Research at Edens Expressway, 537 Broadway, 4th Floor.

Beauty, awkwardness, form, strength, weakness. Intended to be both laboratory and class, the sessions will be time for us to delve into the design of the body and its potential within a given moment. Through stretch and placement, technique studies, movement phrases and open practices, habits will be discovered, challenged, and seen through a new lens. A concentration on the forces through the legs will lead to finding more range in separate body parts and ways to use weight into the floor. My hope is for you to feel present and challenged and to leave class with a few answers and more questions.

Vicky Shick. Morning Class.
Tuesday & Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

Class will begin with systematically readying an alert body and mind for full-out and detailed dancing which we will do in the second part of class. The goal is to help each dancer increase awareness, level of articulation, strength, technical facility and focus. The warm up is simple and straightforward with an emphasis on alignment, physical mechanics, and space for sensation and feedback from our bodies as we work collaboratively to arrive at dancing. Through the practice of doing phrase work with a wide range of physicality and co-ordinations, we hone our skills and apply our training. And with repetition and exploration we educate ourselves and deepen the understanding of the intelligence in our bodies.

A Roundtable discussion with Thomas F. DeFrantz, Susan Mar Landau, Andre Lepecki and Katherine Profeta. 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 explores both the ontology and the workings of dance dramaturgy today. Precluded by a short history of the topic, this first event brought 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, coming up on October 1 at Gibney Dance Center, will open the conversation to include choreographers in an in depth discussion on the practice of dramaturgy.

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.

Jennifer Nugent. Morning Class.
Tuesday & Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

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. No Class May 7.

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.
