Movement Research
movement research is one of the world's leading laboratories for the investigation of dance and movement-based forms. Valuing the individual artist and their creative process and vital role within society, Movement Research is dedicated to the creation and implementation of free and low-cost programs that nurture and instigate discourse and experimentation. Movement Research strives to reflect the cultural, political and economic diversity of its moving community, including artists and audiences alike.

Studies Project: Towards an Adjudication Model for Dance Criticism
Conceived of and moderated by Brian McCormick
September 29, 2009, Abrons Arts Center, 7:00 pm

New ways of engaging with art and artists have gone mainstream, and the artists and their audiences are active in online communities that are democratic, participatory, and user-directed. Is the age of a singular opinion holding substantial sway over? How does one person's experience of a work, no matter how informed that person is, compare to the rich discussion (in words, movement, video, images, music, links, rehearsal, residencies, showings, and live presentations) that takes place over the life of a dance? What purpose does dance criticism, in its current form, retain? And how do we bring about the change that the institutions resist? Panelists will include Laura Colby, Maura Donohue, Doug Fox, Marc Kirschner, Jaki Levi, Eric Ost, David Parker, Sarah A.O. Rosner, Paz Tanjuaquio, Eva Yaa Asantewaa and others.
