SUNDAY PROCESS LAB with VANESSA ANSPAUGH
March 16 SUN 5-8pm $5
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
Archiving the present
This workshop considers movement-based performance as a tool for broadening ones own artistic practice. Starting from “now” we will explore the myriad understandings of presence. We will look to the sensorial, relational, personal, political, seasonal, annual etc. to uncover the layers of what constitutes “this moment.” Bringing the outside in and the inside out we will make a piece together in 3 hours. We will construct, compose, dismantle and play, coating layer upon layer to investigate the idea of “dance as a document” of our time spent together.

SUNDAY PROCESS LAB with MAXIMILIAN BALDUZZI

How to learn rigorous physical and vocal actions while practicing presence? How to be present during the breaks and the breaths between those actions? We will work with exercises developed in almost 20 years of Balduzzi’s practice that focus on impulse and stop, rhythm, opposition. This training allows participants to become more deeply connected to their own intuitions and impulses and better able to respond to them truthfully, fearlessly, and joyfully. read more

I have been workshopping methods that allow practices of the voice and body to exist as the same organism. I will share specific exercises that have helped me to access a more densely layered and articulate singing body. We will wake up the internal space that unites all perceptual facets, and open our ears as well as our skin, muscle, and bone to sound. Come prepared to touch and be touched, to move and be moved, as well as listen. It will be energizing and rigorous. No prior experience with the voice is required…read more

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?

Robert Davidson. Skinner Releasing Master Class

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.
