Sunday December 16. Final Presentations for Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater Fifty Years Later.
3pm. New Museum, 235 Bowery.
$10 New Museum Members; $12 General Public

On September 16, Movement Research (MR) solicited questions from the greater MR community with regards to the imprint that Judson Dance Theater (1962–64) continues to make on contemporary performance. Four questions were selected by attendees as focus topics for further investigation by artists nominated to lead a series of week-long performance laboratories and open rehearsals at the New Museum. On this program, those artists share the results of their investigations for further consideration in an evening filled with performance, experimentation, and lively debate.

Classes This Week With…

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

Using the morning technique class structure as a model, this class will focus on dance as a physical, conceptual and experiential practice, with an emphasis on the cultivation of presence inside of the forms. Class will begin with imagery and gentle preparation culled from various bodywork modalities that access our awareness of the organs, the skeleton, gravity and energetic pathways through the architecture of the body and into the space. Class will expand into technical exercises, choreographic structures, improvisations and performance constructs, exploring ways to engage with the material through precise and imaginative means.

Jennifer Nugent. Morning Class.
Tuesday and 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.
