October 5
Discussion with Marten Spangberg
$5 at the door

Movement Research at Eden's Expressway, 2:00 pm
New York, NY

[Discussion: Wait A Second, The Mood Is Dancy, Theory Without Boox, We Will Hear] If we do it on the floor maybe it’ll work better? Or we could, I dunno… it’s not so important but I really like if you come. For serious. Like exorcism light and there’ll be like blankets if you wanna have a nap. Maybe also like the mouthier version of La Substance… like the making-of but through talking. Theory in the studio, or studio theory but without study – kind of the same as dance – because it’s great and we like. Really far from NYU closer to Whole Foods really almost next to alchemy and nail polish.

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

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.

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

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

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 at 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.
