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.

Movement Research Fall Festival 2011: The 20th Year Celebration
November 28- December 4 2011
Curated by Sondra Loring and K.J. Holmes

Fall Festival Performances.
Performances will take place Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Each of these performances takes one of these qualities as the guiding force, and one night embraces all three together. The MR Studies Project will investigate the nature of these themes by questioning the dance-making process, performance, and and the heart/mind of the artist.
