The artists who have served as Movement Research staff over the past four decades have done so in the spirit of practice and process, valuing intention, thoughtful direction, and trusting the integrity of the ride; as artists, for and with artists.

In this 40th anniversary season, we come together as Movement Research staff, present and past, to share our creative identities with you and with each other.
