Tuesday September 21. Movement Research Town Hall Meeting.
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!

Wednesday September 22. Open Performance.
Open Performance will kick off its fall season with showings by Corrinne Cappelletti, BALAM Dance Theater, Hadley Smith, Wanda Gala!

Join us for classes with faculty: Joanna Kotze, Shakti Smith, Barbara Mahler, Irene Dowd, Raquel Cavalcanti, RoseAnne Spradlin, K.J. Holmes and Levi Gonzalez.
