WORKSHOP
October 4, 11, 18 SAT 5-8pm $90 (Advanced Registration Required)
Choreography = Possibility / Dance = Potentiality
This workshop – practices and examples, thinking and more examples – zoom in on the 2014 rise of dance “detached” from choreography and signification. A dance produced in a post-critical environment gaining momentum through contemporary phenomena, spiritual practices, digital interfaces and current modes of remixing, editing and combining. Today experience the coming of Dance 2.0, a dancing that can allow itself a proactive incompatibility with tradition and representation and we dance together.

DISCUSSIONS
October 5, 12, 19 SUN 2-4pm $5 each (No Registration Required)
Wait A Second, The Mood Is Dancy, Theory Without Boox, We Will Hear
If we do it on the floor maybe it’ll work better? Or we could, I dunno… it’s not so important but I really like if you come. For serious. Like exorcism light and there’ll be like blankets if you wanna have a nap. Maybe also like the mouthier version of La Substance… like the making-of but through talking. Theory in the studio, or studio theory but without study – kind of the same as dance – because it’s great and we like. Really far from NYU closer to Whole Foods really almost next to alchemy and nail polish.

Mårten Spångberg is a choreographer living and working in Stockholm. His interests concern choreography in an expanded field, something approached through experimental practices and creative process in multiplicity of formats and expressions. His last work La Substance… commissioned by MoMA PS1 was presented in the PS1 Dome, Spring 2014. In 2011 he published the controversial book Spangbergianism.

Throughout its 22 year history, the acclaimed Monday night series has provided a safe haven for experimentation and investigation for dance and performance artists from New York and beyond. Movement Research at the Judson Church has hosted generations of dance artists often at critical moments in the development of their work and careers. The program presents over 100 artists in roughly 30 evenings of performance each year. Artists are selected by a rotating committee of peer artists, and join Movement Research Artists-In-Residence and international guests each season in performing at the historic Judson Memorial Church.

The Fall 2014/Winter 2015 season starts on September 8. Performances will be on Mondays from September 8, 2014 through February 9, 2015 at 8pm (doors open at 7:45pm) at the Judson Memorial Church.

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.

Jimmy’s No. 43
43 East 7th Street (between 2nd & 3rd Avenues)
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.

As a dramaturg she has collaborated with choreographers Vanessa Anspaugh, Aretha Aoki, Maximilian Balduzzi, Daria Faïn, Levi Gonzalez, Emily Johnson and Carlos Maria Romero.

I AM ONE WHO Workshop with Raïna von Waldenburg

July 28-30 2014
Monday-Wednesday 12-4pm
Gibney Dance Center, 890 Broadway
$120

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.

Who is a dance?
In this evening’s discussion we will come together to re-contextualize the “authorship question” within the context of contemporary dance. In an art form that is historically simultaneously ephemeral, embodied, and perceived and produced by a plurality of bodies, how and by whom is subjectivity and authorship performed, and towards what ends? Of the work we see and make today, might the question to ask be not “What is an Author?” but rather “Who is a dance?”
