The class format will offer a variety of scenarios and potential entry points for the development of individual explorations of the material as well as creating within the group. Proceeding from viewing and making, we will work in front of and with each other, adhering to and discarding material as necessary. We will talk about our experiences and have fun sharing time together.

technical (and) improvisation work
We’ll try to improve the fluidity of our actions by 1) establishing a purposeful and clear relation with the floor, and 2) integrating all parts of the body in action. The kind of movement I am interested in is first functional, then expressive as a consequence. In these sessions we will try to understand the link between functionality and expressive power. We will often use improvisation instead of set movements in order to understand and apply technical mechanisms in a conscious way; at the same time, a higher technical awareness will allow us to improvise more fluently and with more tools at our disposal.

Movement Research exists, and is known, as a theoretical model of openness and experimentation. It doesn’t dictate but rather creates a space in which to follow one’s own intention or aesthetic. Over time, what shifts have occurred in the role MR plays for us as dance artists and in the culture at large? Is there a tension between the individuality and the collectivity that exists in the MR community of practice, thought and doing, and the making/marketing of our identity(ies)? What role does the dancer/dance-maker play in an age that valorizes and fetishizes making?

Classes this week with…
Nia Love. Morning Class 
Monday, Wednesday 10:00am – 12:00pm. $14
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
Class starts with across the floor rhythmic gaits that investigate independence in the body. Stacking sequential rhythmic patterns build on cardio and core work that emphasizes a feminine-derived energy where conical movement attaches to the base of the spine and radiates up through the core and out to the extremities. Center floor exercises focus on skeletal-muscular motion; rotations, isolations, and weight shifts explore a more grounded approach. The incorporation of a more crisp sensibility to an urban approach that partners up with African, postmodern, Butoh, funk and blues sensibilities. The goal: to break down inhibitions, fine tune modern techniques, yet approach dance with a sense of abandonment!

Levi Gonzalez. Morning Class.
Tuesday 10:00am – 12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

Using the morning technique class structure as a model, this class will focus on dance as a physical, conceptual, and experiential practice, with an emphasis on cultivating presence inside of the forms. Class often begins with imagery and gentle preparation culled from various body-based somatic modalities that access our awareness of the organs, the skeleton, gravity, and energetic pathways through the architecture of the body and into the space. Class may also include technical exercises, choreographic structures, improvisations, and performance constructs, taking our time to engage with these materials with precision, imagination, and a thorough and informed sense of embodiment.

Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
Taking two everyday forms of movement, we will allow these forms to disorganize within, and be disorganizing of, our bodies. This will lead us to understandings of function and form, and the creative potential within experiential states of disorder. As we explore in solo, duet, and ensemble improvisations, moving periodically in contact and/or with eyes closed, lines between states of order and disorder will be at times stark and at others blurred. The sensations that arise within this unstable and unbound matrix range from relaxing to energizing, chaotic to cathartic, disorienting to freeing.

Vulnerable Systems: Moving Beyond Sustainability
Conceived in partnership with Jennifer Monson and Movement Research
November 5 TUE 6pm-8pm
Gibney Dance Center 890 Broadway, 5th Floor
FREE
The reality of climate change has brought an increased awareness around the fragility of our environment and a heightened interest in sustainable practices. How do we move beyond sustainability towards resiliency, a term currently in broad use in the social sciences? How do we address the current crisis from its roots, rather than perpetuating unworkable systems? Is change a value or an action? How can our practices within the dance community serve as models for adapting to change? We will discuss different framings of sustainability from the perspectives of various fields, including social science, economics, and urban ecology in a roundtable conversation which invites the dance community and the larger public to explore concrete ways to create resilient systems in their own communities and beyond.

Moving from Touch with Eva Karczag
November 1-3 Friday-Sunday  10am-1pm
Cathy Weis Studio, 537 Broadway
$90 Full Workshop
Moving from Touch
Touch comes in many shapes and sizes. From a hand resting on a hand or arm, to a back resting against a back breathing together. We are all born knowing experientially the gift of touch. When we give touch, we receive touch in return – an exchange of information from body to body – reciprocity. Touch can draw our attention from deep inside the body to the surface, to skin, and touch can take our attention from skin to depth, addressing and integrating fundamental facets of our being and giving us information about body systems, movement qualities and thought processes, as well as opening spaces for imagination. In this workshop we will explore moving from touch.

Classes this week with…

Nia Love. Morning Class 
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10am-12pm. $14
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
Class starts with across the floor rhythmic gaits that investigate independence in the body. Stacking sequential rhythmic patterns build on cardio and core work that emphasizes a feminine-derived energy where conical movement attaches to the base of the spine and radiates up through the core and out to the extremities. Center floor exercises focus on skeletal-muscular motion; rotations, isolations, and weight shifts explore a more grounded approach. The incorporation of a more crisp sensibility to an urban approach that partners up with African, postmodern, Butoh, funk and blues sensibilities. The goal: to break down inhibitions, fine tune modern techniques, yet approach dance with a sense of abandonment!

Levi Gonzalez. Morning Class.
Tuesday & Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

Using the morning technique class structure as a model, this class will focus on dance as a physical, conceptual, and experiential practice, with an emphasis on cultivating presence inside of the forms. Class often begins with imagery and gentle preparation culled from various body-based somatic modalities that access our awareness of the organs, the skeleton, gravity, and energetic pathways through the architecture of the body and into the space. Class may also include technical exercises, choreographic structures, improvisations, and performance constructs, taking our time to engage with these materials with precision, imagination, and a thorough and informed sense of embodiment.

October 22-26 Tuesday – Saturday  10am-2pm
Cathy Weis Studio, 537 Broadway
$180 Full Workshop
TUNING SCORES Laboratory – Composition, communication, and the sense of imagination
A multi-sensorial approach to the questions: what do we ‘see’ when we look at dance? what do we ‘see’ from within the dance?’ The scores offer inner and outer communication tools and practices that make apparent the ways each of us sense and make sense of movement. A playful and rigorous dialogue-in-action about space, time, movement, and the innate desire to compose our experience. Creators/Performers in any discipline (dance, music, visual art, theater, science, engineering, farming) are welcome.

rotator_Michelle+Ori
Ori Flomin. Morning Class 
Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 10am-12pm. $14
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
The class encourages students to increase their movement possibilities and take risks in dancing by maximizing the benefits of the warmed-up body. The warm-up moves smoothly from floor to standing with a strong focus on anatomy to strengthen connections of correct alignment with an increase of fluidity in the joints.. Dancers will develop an understanding of the connections between their body and the floor, and will learn how to use momentum and breath to explore physically-full dancing with the least amount of muscular tension. During phrase work, dancers will learn how to incorporate information from the warm-up to execute more complicated sequences.

Michelle Boulé. Morning Class.
Tuesday & Thursday. 10:00am-12:00pm. $14.
Danspace Project, 131 E. 10th Street.

We’ll look at different ways of approaching ‘dance technique’… energy systems, physical systems, architectural-object-spatial relationships, contact and non-contact partner and solo improvisations. I take my current somatic, dance, and performance interests and apply them to a movement practice. A maximally informed approach to dancing. A space of respectful, creative permission for everyone’s body. A time to really let things move in all senses of the word… in relationship with and beyond oneself.

Afternoon Classes with Jeremy Nelson.
October 14-18 Monday – Friday 12:30pm-2:30pm
Avenue C Studio, 55 Avenue C
$14 per class, Movement Research Class Cards applicable
The workshop will draw on Nelson’s 25 years of continuing study in the work of Barbara Mahler and Susan Klein, and by more recent studies in other techniques such as Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais Method® and Body-Mind Centering®. We will begin with simple exercises and stretches that encourage mobility and suppleness in the superficial muscles, establish clear connections and directions through the bones, and create a dynamic and weighted relationship with the floor. The class will also incorporate a variety of approaches including some improvisation and hands-on work in partners that help deepen our awareness and give us the opportunity to really experience some of these ideas in a physical way. We will then take our work into very simple activities and movements in order to try and integrate this new awareness into our body’s movement patterns, and then build up to phrases of movement that involve moving more fully and dynamically.

rotator_SPL_AntoniaBaehr

Sunday Process Lab with Antonia Baehr
Sunday, October 20  5-8pm
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
$5
In this workshop, Antonia Baehr proposes to share an artistic practice around the performance LAUGH. It is for all public. LAUGH is a piece about laughing as laughing. For the length of the piece Antonia Baehr explores this expression as a sovereign entity, in separation from causal baggage; jokes, tickles, narrative, humor, joy, looking at the thing itself: the sound and shape, the music, choreography and drama, the rhythm and the gesture of laughter. Comedy is not her goal, but contamination is an unavoidable by-product that sometimes contagiously trades sides of the ‘fourth wall’.
