In "The Sounding Body: Gills & Bellows" with Tatyana Tenenbaum (@tatyanatenenbaum) no experience with voice is required! ⠀⠀ As Tatyana states, "We'll regard each body as its own expert, making room for doubt and interrogation along the way. With the breath at the center of physical practice we will work both alone and with touch from a partner to investigate how vibration moves through our muscles, fascia, bones and ligaments." ⠀⠀ It's not too late to register for this ONE-DAY workshop, happening this Saturday, 3/23 From 2-5pm, in our new home! --> Movement Research, 122 Community Center! ⠀⠀ Visit our website to secure your spot!
Join K.J. Holmes for her workshop, “Infinite Affinities” on Thursdays, 3/28-4/25 . . . “This intensive workshop for dancers, musicians, actors, performance artists will explore movement, sound, text through entering into the physiology of different fluid states that the body holds as vibration and inner musicality based on the studies of Body Mind Centering®. ⠀⠀ Each class a different musician will join who will also be exploring and setting the tone for the specific study of that class.” ⠀⠀ Students must commit to the full workshop that ends with an informal showing in studio.

In “The Sounding Body: Voice as Movement” with Peter Sciscioli, 'We will explore how the extension of movement into sound and vibration can alter our perception and activate space differently than movement alone. Further, we will experience a dialogue between spoken language and movement, and between dancing and singing. Finally, we will discover how this interplay can expand the variety of choices that are available, allowing for a fuller means of expression through the body. ⠀⠀ The workshop is open to all levels, drop-ins are welcome and each session will have a slightly different focus that is progressive over the course of our time together.' ⠀⠀ Visit our website for details and registration! ⠀⠀ Photo by Victor Blanco

Join Tatyana Tenenbaum for The Sounding Body: Gills and Bellows! ⠀⠀ “This workshop is for the physically attuned, sonically curious artist from any creative background. My practice has emerged over the past decade in response to disconnects in my own body, mind and heart. Influenced by Emilie Conrad’s philosophical writing on paralysis and fluid resonance, this workshop aims to integrate the voice into your physical practice through sonic vibration.” . . . This one-day workshop is coming up on Saturday, 3/23! Visit our website for more details about this workshop and the Sounding Body series 💫 ⠀⠀ Photo by Anna Maynard

Movement Research welcomes Deneane Richburg as a part of our MRX/McKnight program. Deneane shares her work at MR@Judson this Monday, 2/25! Learn a bit about Deneane below 👇 . . . “Deneane grew up a competitive figure skater, spending time in spaces where she felt she had to check her racial/cultural identity at the door, as the predominantly White skating world excluded her ancestry’s truths; to quote Zora Neale Hurston, Deneane always felt “most colored when [she was] thrown against a sharp white background.” As an adult, she realized the need to carve out a space for her ancestral history, so she established Brownbody, a creative home for her artistic work that fuses theater, dance, social justice practice, and skating. ⠀⠀ Deneane is a grateful recipient of a 2017 McKnight Choreography Fellowship administered by the Cowles Center and funded by The McKnight Foundation.” . . . Check out Deneane’s full bio on our website. ⠀⠀ Photo courtesy of the artist
"The classroom, with all its limitations, remains a location of possibility. In that field of possibility we have the opportunity to labor for freedom, to demand of ourselves and our comrades, an openness of mind and heart that allows us to face reality even as we collectively imagine ways to move beyond boundaries, to transgress. This is education as the practice of freedom." –bell hooks . . . ⠀⠀ Join us this coming Tuesday, 2/26 for Studies Project: Dance Makers in the Schools: Kids Need Dance! ⠀⠀ More quotes and readings for this Studies Project are available on our website! ⠀⠀ Photo by Ian Douglas
