This Week at Movement Research…



MELT “Movie Night” with Jennifer Monson

Tuesday August 5. 7pm.
Gibney Dance Center, 890 Broadway.
Free and open to all.

Jennifer Monson will be showing documentation from the Movement Research Festival, Spring 2014 fallow time.

If you came to the festival please come to discuss what has been generated from the fallow time experience and share your own documentation. If you weren’t able to attend the festival, come to the movie night to joint the conversation around the themes and concepts of the festival. We will be showing video, photos and written documents generated during and after fallow time. We will also distribute a zine that came out of the festival experience.

Hosted by a different MELT teaching artist each week, the MELT “Movie Night” series features work that inspires, influences, engages and/or represents that artist’s current creative process and artistic concerns. The screenings provide an opportunity for a more in-depth dialogue between students and teachers beyond the workshop setting, as well as a chance to connect in a more social environment.

Open to all, Suggested donation $5

between us/the space/between us:
speculations on spectatorship

Placing Rancière’s “Emancipated Spectator” center stage, in tonight’s discussion we will move back and forth through time and texts to reflect on the “theater” and political philosophy’s parallel and, at times, collaborative exploration of spectatorship. Revisiting the territory both theorists and artists alike have mapped, we will cast our gaze and our conversation both from and towards the space of the spectator.

Susan Mar Landau is a New York City based dramaturg and interdisciplinary artist. As a dramaturg she has collaborated with choreographers Vanessa Anspaugh, Aretha Aoki, Maximilian Balduzzi, Daria Faïn, Levi Gonzalez, Emily Johnson and Carlos Maria Romero. Landau holds a BA from Hampshire College, a M.A. in Performance Design and Practice from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of London, and a Graduate Certificate in Performance and Interactive Media Arts from CUNY.
