Spring Festival 2015: meet the writers

MOVEMENT RESEARCH FESTIVAL SPRING 2015

legible/illegible: opening beyond the space of identities

 

Tune in to the MR Spring Festival online to blog postings by the curators and our team of festival writers, Jaime Shearn Coan and Cassie Peterson. We have asked the writers to respond as artists, and as such welcome their unique vantages. Read along in real-time as each share their impressions of the various festival events. In casual blog form, these writings will be offered as open-ended dialogues.

~ the curators (Layla Childs, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko, and Samita Sinha)

 

ABOUT THE WRITERS:

Cassie Peterson is a New York-based writer and thinker. She works as a psychotherapist by day, and moonlights as a dramaturge, essayist, & contemporary dance critic. Her extemporaneous musings and critical inquiries can be found on her art & theory blog, Self & Other, as well as being featured in various publications like The Brooklyn Rail, Bomb Magazine, PerformaMagazine, and the Movement Research Performance Journal.​​

Jaime Shearn Coan is a writer and PhD student at The Graduate Center, CUNY. His writings on dance can be found frequently in The Brooklyn Rail. An inaugural Poets House Fellow and recipient of a 2014 Jerome Foundation Travel and Study Grant, Jaime recently served as dramaturg for choreographer Mariangela López’s El Regreso. Jaime’s poetry chapbook, Turn it Over, from which he’ll be reading at The Poetry Project on May 22, is available from Argos Books.

RSVP

Living a body that shouts through the underbelly, a protested or protesting body, a black body, a body of the multitudes, a body of color, a body no one believes, a body of rage or exhaustion, a body on the ground outlined in chalk. Our current moment’s choreographies and vocabularies – gestures, chants, dances, collective actions – reveal (and disrupt) practices of living. What experiences do we hold in memory and body, and how do we hold them? With reverence? Power? Performers and writers respond with you.

Dingen
By Karin Verbruggen
Soundscape by: Calmsound
Once I met an 8 year old who gave everything in the world around her the same importance. Describing a photo she said: “This is my garden, this is my brother, this is the airplane, this is the house, there is the cat.” The question, now, is simple: what happens when you place objects and human bodies on the same level?
With the support of Bureau Internationale Jeunesse and De School van Gaasbeek.

At the moment of encounter
Choreographer and performer Wanjiru Kamuyu
Music (original composition and arrangement): Jean Philippe Barrios, alias lacrymoboy
Album available on iTunes and Bandcamp, artiste lacrymoboy

This work’s development began during a Blank Canvas artist residency at The Firkin Crane in Cork, Ireland, August 2014. While serving as a Guest Artist at Mills College (Oakland CA), I continue to explore and develop At the moment of encounter. A Production Residency is scheduled for May 11-17, 2015 at Mills College’s Lisser Theater.

Synopsis: The intrigue lies in how meditatively stillness, working from the internal through to the external, creating a progressive shift of dynamics while playing with the ideas of suspension, repetition, and variations on a movement theme can draw in both performer and witness (audience).
