This Week at Movement Research…


I AM ONE WHO Workshop with Raïna von Waldenburg

July 28-30 2014
Monday-Wednesday 12-4pm
Gibney Dance Center, 890 Broadway

Developed during the past 21 years by Raïna von Waldenburg and based on the physical actor training of Jerzy Grotowski and Stephen Wangh (An Acrobat of the Heart), this innovative approach to performance teaches artists to embody the present moment with barefaced sincerity. A series of physical presence exercises trains the performer to literally bring all parts of him/herself into the work, generating impulses that are utterly alive, surprisingly truthful, and emotionally resonant. Performers learn to develop constructive vocabulary for giving and receiving critical feedback in an ensemble-based environment where peers are vital to the learning process.

MELT “Movie Night” with Levi Gonzalez

Tuesday July 29. 7pm.
Gibney Dance Center, 890 Broadway.
Free and open to all.

Levi Gonzalez is a dance artist whose work has been presented in NYC and beyond for the past 14 years. He has performed with Donna Uchizono, John Jasperse, Juliette Mapp, Daria Faïn, ChameckiLerner, and Michael Laub, and has collaborated extensively with luciana achugar. He was a 2010-12 BAX Artist-in-Residence.

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.
