February 3
Artists in K-12 Schools
Conceived by Diana Crum with panelists Lynn Brown, Donna Costello, Jessica Nicoll, and Jules Skloot

Gibney Dance at 890 Broadway, 6:15 pm
890 Broadway, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10003

What is the role of the dance teaching artist in schools? Many artists make a living by teaching grades K-12 in the NYC school system. Is their goal to share their artistic practice, the ideology behind their aesthetic, tools for making art, historical reference points, movement skills, or something else? Hear experienced voices from different arenas of dance-in-education and share your own questions and ideas. Reflect on your own practice and how the work of teaching artists impacts education and culture in this city.

March 3
Dance and Publish
Hosted by Biba Bell, Moriah Evans and Will Rawls

Gibney Dance at 890 Broadway, 6:15 pm
890 Broadway, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10003

How can Movement Research's two publications, the Movement Research Performance Journal and Critical Correspondence, collaborate and extend their reach? This Studies Project will examine the role of both print and digital publishing at MR, and then invite public discussion about how to analyze and optimize the circulation of dance ideas within artist networks, academic curricula, arts publishing and cultural discourse.

April 7
being a body out loud
Conceived by Ni’Ja Whitson Adebanjo*, Tara Aisha Willis, and more

Gibney Dance at 890 Broadway, 6:15 pm
890 Broadway, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10003

Living a body that shouts through the underbelly, a protested or protesting body, a black body, a body of the multitudes, a body of color, a body no one believes, a body of rage or exhaustion, a body on the ground outlined in chalk. Our current moment’s choreographies and vocabularies – gestures, chants, dances, collective actions – reveal (and disrupt) practices of living. What experiences do we hold in memory and body, and how do we hold them? With reverence? Power? Performers and writers respond with you.

May 5
Dance and Labor
Organized in dialogue with Movement Research, luciana achugar, Abigail Levine and Kathy Westwater

Gibney Dance at 890 Broadway, 6:15 pm
890 Broadway, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10003

How is dance labor valued? How has it been valued? How might it be? And how can we affect the value assigned to this labor? These questions will be considered across a spectrum of contexts, including individual and institutional, organized and spontaneous, and historical and anecdotal to explore how performance and dance function within our current artistic, economic and labor realities.
