📚Studies Project - Reading Group: Conversations on Dance Dramaturgy, Part 2

Join Joshua Lubin-Levy and André Lepecki next Wednesday for the next installment of Conversations on Dance Dramaturgy! This event encourages participation—more like an open forum, or informal study group—and is for those with a variety of relationships to the theory and practice of dance dramaturgy.

For details and registration go to > Full Calendar
Or visit: https://movementresearch.org/events/1278/?event=11180 | ** if you've registered previously you should have received a confirmation with the new date!

Time: 6:30PM-8:30PM EST
Location: 122CC – Ninth Street Studio
Price: Free

What is a dance dramaturg? How do they work? What relationship do they have to choreography and the choreographer? This open discussion is an opportunity to explore the practice of dance dramaturgy and the shifting position of the dance dramaturg within contemporary performance practice. Far from definable, the practice of dance dramaturgy leads to the richly aesthetic and philosophical knot of trying to work alongside and in service to an artist who is not oneself.

📰 Read MRPJ #58/59!
Megan Curet “METHODS IN EN RITMO / PRAXIS IN DECOLONIZING TRADITIONAL DANCE SPACES” (43-44)

In the practice of En Ritmo, Western approaches to dance are decentralized through the utilization of bomba, a Puerto-Rican, Black, Indigenous dance, as the entryway to research. Curet poses the question, can the fusion of bomba and contemporary practices act as a catalyst in unlearning the centralization of modern and ballet?

Description:
These classes will combine skills and applications of decades of somatic research that include release techniques and body-mind practices that explore transitions and systems and patterns of development and evolution, embodiments of Contact Improvisation, and dance tunings within solo, duet (strong emphasis on partnering), and ensemble dancing. The interest and focus are in the very physical, sensorial, and imaginative, and in discovering new challenges and risks within our movement – of both body and mind – towards improvisational and compositional processes. This class plays with honoring the individual within the ensemble. Each student brings their own unique history into a shared experience of creating together a living presence.

“WE ARE SO CLOSE” (36-42)

Dages reflects on the experience of working alongside Faye Driscoll’s newest group work Weathering as Drsicoll’s dramaturg. Keates shares main ideas explored within the work such as the proximity of physical connection, the body as a weather system, and how the collapse of climate contributes to a sensory hyper awareness within and around us.

Description:

Our time in this Klein Technique™ Movement Class will be devoted to the application of the essential principles of Klein Technique™ as it applies dance technique. We will work on the floor, standing, and occasional barre phrases to facilitate fuller use of the two ball and socket joints and their figure 8, phrases for clear use of legs, trunk, and shoulder girdle/arms, connecting us to the earth, giving us the floor as we reach into space.

Klein Technique™ works at the level of the bone, the simplest and deepest structure in the body to work with clarity, imagery, and energy. Working on this level allows us to drop in under the layers of muscle which holds us in set postural configurations. The work we do in class focuses on deep connections of support and movement: Freeing the legs and spine, connecting the pelvis to the legs, and connecting the upper body to the lower, and the skull to the feet.

Description:
This reading group will be an exercise in close reading amidst and in the aftermath of genocide. The avalanche of death and destruction in Palestine has generated an immense deluge of image, sound, and text—both in the relay of the facts of genocide from people on the ground, and in the global political discourse that has erupted since. The scale and pace of what we receive daily, of words and scenes and horrors, can be so overwhelming that it is rendered shapeless and nameless. We must resist the blurring of faces and truths, we must commit to our memory the sharp contours of the lives being decimated.

This reading group is a collaborative study, in the Moten and Harney sense, with the intent to reflect on what is required of us amidst a paradigm shift of such colossal proportions. We will do this through a collection of readings, films, and exercises that will invite us to sit close to the image and the word, and think of this moment within the long stretch of our steady walk towards liberation.

Sam Max “A LINEAGE OF ANTAGONISM” (32-35)

Sam Max stages a confrontation on audience antagonization, starting with a look into Ann Liv Young’s performance with students at Amsterdam’s School for New Dance Development (SNDO) titled 37 Sherry’s. During the performance, participating students incited a coup on Young, returning Young’s incitement of danger right back at her. This refusal to be led opens a throughline to works staged by Austrian choreographer Florentina Holzinger, who prior to her success in Berlin, was a participating student during 37 Sherry’s at SNDO. Max maps Young’s continued imprint in works by Crackhead Barney and Young Boy Dancing Group, who push boundaries of audience engagement amidst a pressure to center care in performance.

🗞New reissue from CC: Samar Haddad King and Katie Baer Schetlick revisit their conversation from December 14, 2011.

To read this piece click the or visit: https://movementresearch.org/publications/critical-correspondence/dancing-in-palestine-ii/

>>> Samar on the necessity of fiction in recounting our individual stories.

Samar: In the new work I’m building, there’s quite a large text. It’s a fictitious story loosely based on a real person. I have the artists answering prompts within the world of their character and in the world that we’ve built. Of course the specific choices the performer makes are influenced by their histories and their past and their Palestinian-ness or since I work with artists across the globe, wherever the artist might be from: Turkey, Japan, the U.K., Detroit, Vermont. I believe that all of the ingredients of all of their lives, yes, will influence these things, but we do approach it from this third person, a fictitious character.
Oftentimes, working in fiction allows an artist to really explore depths that maybe if they’re just taking their own story, they might be afraid to tap into it fully. Our job with the stories is to deliver something, a portal for the audience to maybe see a reflection of themselves or to walk through a door and see something else.

jess pretty “THE BREEZE BETWEEN THE LEAVES PT. 2” (27-29)

In this poetic recollection, pretty shares somatic rememberings from a field in the Berkshires. With attention to pretty’s own students, and interweaving the voices of Nia Love and adrienne maree brown, radical transformation unfurls through slow movement as an inherently Black, q***r, and feminist act.

Description:
The Feldenkrais Method® studies the works of our nervous system and our ability to recognize and create movement patterns that are both more efficient and spontaneous. The method emphasizes awareness, distribution of effort/action through the whole self, expanding self-perception, and our ability to carry out our intentions. This class is ideal for dancers and people from different backgrounds interested in discovering more about their physicality in a pain-free way and enjoying a larger sense of well-being.
