[Virtual] Festival 2020-2021

November 24 – May 31, 2021

About Movement Research Festivals:

Movement Research Festivals, curated by a team of artists, explore contemporary dance forms through performances, classes, workshops, and discursive events. MR Festivals allow for a varied investigation and exploration into current artistic concerns and reflect Movement Research’s mission of valuing artists, their creative process, and their vital role within society. The Fall Festival centers around performances at our long-time festival home, Danspace Project.

A note on [Virtual] 2020 Festival events...

Like many event series happening this year, Movement Research's Festival looks a bit different. Rather than condensing a series of in-person events, workshops and performances into a five day period in December, various events like this GPS Chat will be scattered throughout the coming months. We hope you'll join us in exploring this new format, and connect with artists around the globe.
