Dance and Music Now
Proposed by Philip Ellis Foster
Panelists include:Douglas Dunn & Steven Taylor, Melanie Maar & Kenta Nagai, Edisa Weeks & Katie Down

Movement Research at Eden's Expressway, 6:15 pm
New York, NY

Musicians and dancers have a long and storied relationship with one another, from traditional forms that wed music and dance to narrative storytelling, to orchestral ballets, and on to Cage and Cunningham collaborations. This evening explores the multifaceted ways artists are addressing this relationship today, with a focus on musicians that perform live with dancers and movement-based performance work. Artists will discuss and examine their various dynamic approaches to collaboration between and across these fields. All are invited to attend and participate in the discussion.

November 10
Dancer as Agent
Conceived by Cecilia Roos in partnership with Iréne Hultman
Panelists include: Hilary Clark and Juliette Mapp

Movement Research at Eden's Expressway, 6:15 pm
New York, NY

Within the field of dance, the creation process often demands that dancers develop methodologies, movement vocabularies and conceptual frames. Previously seen as the exclusive domain of choreographers, dramaturges and directors, these procedural boundaries are now shifting and eroding creative hierarchies in live performance. This has produced new, mostly undocumented relationships to working processes and bodies of knowledge. The Dancer as Agent began in 2013 as a conference held at University of Dance and Circus (DOCH) in Sweden. This conversation will focus on some of the topics that emerged from that conference.

January 20
The Role of Class in Current Dance Practices
Conceived in conversation with MR Faculty

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

What role does “class” play in current dance practices? As contemporary teaching artists attempt to articulate new methods of transmitting knowledge through the body, so too are performers of contemporary dance and performance work drifting away from relying exclusively on traditional and codifiable techniques. How can we get the most out of the structures that exist and/or create new ones as we relate these models to the way people make work now? This conversation with teaching artists and practitioners will engage these seemingly intangible questions with concrete practices and proposals.
