The Week Ahead. September 13-19, 2010.

This Week at Movement Research…Judson is back, classes, upcoming events and more!


Monday, Wednesday, Friday, September 13, 15 and 17. Workshop with Eva Karzag!
9am-12pm. Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway. $90.
Observation, directed touch and imagery are tactics we can bring into play in order to create an environment of internal body spaciousness. Qigong is a form through which we will practice how to sustain the sensation of internal openness and energy flow while moving. When we then make a shift into improvisation, the internal space we carry with us gives rise to dancing that is easeful and generated by energetic intention. These three classes will begin with body awareness that will slide into an extended Qigong practice. We will then integrate new-found physical insights within improvisation.

Movement Research Town Hall Meeting
Tuesday September 21. 8pm. Judson Memorial Church.
Join Movement Research and its Artist Advisory Council as we revive the Movement Research Town Hall Meeting! 32 years since the founding of Movement Research and the coining of its name, we invite our whole community to come together to discuss what the concept of ‘movement research’ means to us today. What are we researching? What is the form of that research, what does it require and how is it shared, accessible, or made legible? Panelists will kickstart the evening by introducing sub-topics related to dance, movement-based performance, and choreographic practice as research. Please come share your ideas.
