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.

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.

MaximilianBalduzzi_byTxuca

SUNDAY PROCESS LAB with MAXIMILIAN BALDUZZI
March 2 SUN 5-8pm $5
Eden’s Expressway, 537 Broadway
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

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.

Classes this week with…
Nia Love. Morning Class 
Monday, Wednesday, Friday 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 & 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.

Connecting to the Inner and Outer Landscape
Yamazaki’s practice, which is grounded in Butoh and Noguchi gymnastics, examines time and space in the body and in the environment, while sensitizing your perception and feelers to be able to accept the environment, as it is, without any physical or mental blocking. This class is open for anyone who would like to take a moment to listen to and balance your inner and outer sense of space and time.

Tuesday October 1. Studies Project: Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice
6pm. Gibney Dance Center, 890 Broadway, 5th Floor. FREE.
Conceived by Amanda Loulaki and Susan Mar Landau

The dramaturg as an active participant in the conceiving and making of movement-based works is a relatively new and evolving phenomenon. Conceived as a two-part event, Dramaturgy as Practice/Dramaturgy in Practice will explore both the ontology and the workings of dance dramaturgy today. This second event will bring together dramaturgs, choreographers and dancers to engage in an in-depth conversation on the experience, effect and possible implications of the presence of the dramaturg in the choreographic process.

Curators on Process and the Matter of Inclusion. To feel a part of something. Communal, to have community. To be asked, invited in, to ask to be invited in. Access, entry. While the role of curator and the process of curation holds as much artistry as the making of dance and performance, we hone in on an equally important need for a touch of transparency surrounding the presentation of dance and the body. What issues and concerns arise inside of a shifting community where representation is crucial for belonging and sustainable support? What are we doing to reach out to more artists? Where are those artists? Who are those artists? What are the complexities that arise while supporting the sustainability of an artist? What responsibility do we have to an idea of cultivating and supporting “newness?” Where is the body inside all of this? How do we digest being on the inside or outside of something spiritually, aesthetically, emotionally and academically?
