The Movement Party is a group of individuals dedicated to providing citizens and non-citizens of any state, nation, or territory with more opportunities to move. We are a growing body politic committed to communication through a physicality threatened by the encroachment of a sedentary, voyeuristic life. The platform is simple: to establish a new awareness of people, place, thing, time, and sensation; to find new ways to move in old spaces, and old ways to move in new spaces; to move together in proximity and distance; to move in our environments and consider movement as a mode of experiencing new ones. We believe that a moving body opens a world of other possible mobilizations. For more info: Zena Bibler and Katie Baer Schetlick first met while obtaining their masters in Performance Studies at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Here they embarked on an exploration of the moving body over cups of coffee and experiments in Union Square Park. After several years of collaboration in thought and practice, they return to their most pressing question. How can we dance with an entire park? An entire city? An entire planet? They founded the Movement Party in 2010 to try to help find some answers…
