As part of her residency, Mariangela Lopez, a Movement Research 2009 Artist-in-Residence, offers this free workshop open to everyone -no prior movement experience is necessary. The workshop space will become a platform to share

individual experiences to create the identity of a group. The participants will explore their own creative and movement potential through releasing their personal memories and perceptions of their own environment by utilizing the power of the group to then build a collective experience. Mariangela’s work has emerged from the participation of different members of the community where she lives and develops her work. Through this workshop she hopes to build a core of participants for the development and presentation of a new work to be presented first in Spring 2010 at Movement Research at the Judson Church and possibly other venues. This is an opportunity to be part of a creative process. The participants may choose to come only once or continue the exploration in a weekly basis. You don’t need to start from the very first week, but remember that your consistency will determine your participation in the further development of the work. You don’t need to want to perform to come to the sessions.

This workshop will explore how personal physical histories are stored and communicated. Focus will be given to creating ritualized practices that encourage participants to observe and reflect upon their somatic sensations in relation to specific environments and situations. This workshop is geared towards movers looking to gain deeper movement clarity and a fuller performance presence. We will use active imagination to guide our remembrance of specific environments, and use this information to enhance our performance. Workshop Objectives: •Develop your ability to record and retrieve sensory and kinetic information from your environment •Learn how the mind and body process and store sensory and kinetic information? •Practice movement rituals that will heighten you ability to recall sensory information
*workshop will meet at Eden’s Expressway in case of inclement weather
