Meet at Grand Army Plaza Brooklyn on May 23

These events are a part of the Movement Research Festival

Park Dance, Nature Style 11am-1pm FREE
Workshop with Michelle Boulé
How can our park behaviors of rolling, frolicking, tree hugging, birdwatching, and sunbathing inspire and deepen our creative practices? Icy Spicy Leoncie says it best: “MAN! LET’S HAVE FUN.” Use the park to lighten up and enlighten our movement investigations, going into the depths of serious play. An outdoor inspired warm-up will lead to improvisation, watching, talking, spontaneously devised nature rituals, immediate composition, and performance for each other and anyone else who wants to watch. Take advantage of what the park has to offer to our senses and let this expand our sensibilities. With nature as the backdrop, classroom, communal body, support, and container, see how deepening your ability to experience enhances your creative practices and vice versa.

Writing with Dance
1:30-3:30pm FREE
acilitated by Cassie Peterson
Writing with Dancewill focus on the art of dance criticism and will be grounded in the details of body-based, live performance. How do we talk and write about dance? How do our experiences and conversations translate to the page? So much dance writing and criticism tries to convince us that the writer is operating from a neutral or expert position; and that a performance can be reduced or understood as one thing; and that as such, it has some kind of inherent value or non-value. Through this process of commodification, the work is reduced, reified, and objectified, whereby emphasis is rendered solely on product and not on process or method. In these two hours, we will discuss ways that we as writers can focus on an artist’s process, as we learn to write “with” dance as opposed to writing “about” it. Bring in a piece of your own dance writing to share if you want, as we explore our various visions of dance writing and criticism.

Another Evening at The Glass House
All events take place at Arts@Renaissance (Part of St. Nicks Alliance) through AUNTS
2 Kingsland Avenue (at Maspeth Avenue)
L to Graham Ave.
$15 (full evening pass including food)

You’re invited to a special banquet produced by Athena Kokoronis in collaboration with choreographerSuiso Ogawa and performer Emma Quaytman. In Blessings, Bodies gather around a table to sit together. The event invites you to open your mouth to taste; a meal and a dance will be served.

When you get a roommate, how much privacy do you need? How close do you want to be to that person? Is it possible to share the unique nature of living? In Roommates, paired artists spend a few hours privately in a studio in advance of the performance to design a situation in which they feel comfortable to share the same space and time of performance while they explore this unique possibility for collaboration. The experience is both private and public.
Participating Pairs of Artists:
Benjamin Asriel / Justine Lynch
Marjani Forté / Tatyana Tenenbaum
K.J. Holmes / Ryutaro
MishimaMartín Lanz / Cori Olinghouse
