FOR WHAT was a discussion led by panelists who enjoy multi-faceted engagement with the cultural field, including healing elements, social justice aspects, performance activations, and various cultural considerations. The discussion was a response to the observation that many artists decide to be of service in some way to the culture and to others and addresses questions such as what are we doing, and what are we doing it for? What does it mean to live/work as an artist at this current time, and how do we position our work in relation to everything else in our lives and our environment? And in what way are our artistic practices necessary to a collective transformation of society?

FOR WHAT
Moderated by Ursula Eagly
Panelists include Morgan Bassichis, Justine Lynch, Melanie Maar, Clarinda Mac Low, Alta Starr and Marýa Wethers.

What are we doing, and what are we doing it for? What does it mean to live/work as an artist at this current time, and how do we position our work in relation to everything else in our lives and our environment? In what way are our artistic practices necessary to a collective transformation of society? We see that many artists decide to be of service in some way to the culture and to others. We invited panelists who enjoy multi-faceted engagement with the cultural field, including healing elements, social justice aspects, performance activations, and various cultural considerations.

The two days are structured around a sequence of explorations, performance, reflective actions and discussion. Please bring in 1-3 minutes of your material for starters.

SHAKE/WALK
Taking two everyday forms of movement, we will allow these forms to disorganize within, and to be disorganizing of, our bodies. This process will lead us into understandings of function and form and also into expressive potentials that arise within experimental states of disorder. As we explore in solo, duet, and ensemble improvisations, moving periodically in contact and/or with eyes closed, the lines between states of order and disorder will be at times stark and at others blurred. The sensations that arise within this unstable and unbound matrix range from relaxing to energizing, from disorienting to freeing.

The Week Ahead: March 12-18, 2012.

BODY of SOUND
Join an adventure into unmapped ground for voice-movement. Enter the cellular tonal field through vibrational rhythms. Open to sensory warm-ups and restorative presence. Liven to insightful finds that surprise and embrace your fun-loving elf. Respond authentically to stimulating image-sound-language prompts. As we dive into new skillsets, we stir the soundbody and its yearnings, stories, memories, and intentions. We explore individually, with partners, and in the circle. What unfolds? A true gathering of voice-movement vignettes, gateways to personal balance, horizon mind, and performance reach. Beth is available for individual sessions by appt. during her time in NYC. 732.778.3696

PROSODIC BODY Workshop: Choreoprosodia (the fusion of movement and prosody)
These six workshops focus on the sonic properties of language exploring the correspondences between energy centers, hormonal secretion, seed movements, sonic harmony, and emotional and neurological impact. Spending time with each of the different phoneme-harmonic-compositions developed for the Phoneme Choir, we will use a ‘scientific methodology’ to differentiate and name how each affects individuals and inform us of their healing and performative properties.
