Movement Research Annual Town Hall Meeting
Monday, November 5, 2012
Introduction by Kathy Westwater
This is a recording from the third annual Movement Research Town Hall Meeting, hosted by the Movement Research Artist Advisory Council.
This year, living in the worst economic environment of most of our lifetimes, we ask ourselves: How does the current climate affect our lives and artistic work, and vice versa? What creative insights and understandings, structures and alternatives, have manifest during this time of financial challenge? We gathered to share and articulate our perspectives and personal experiences through the recession and saw that they can have material, theoretical and practical repercussions within our community and beyond.
Also, check out a great synopsis and analysis of the meeting by Eva Yaa Asantewaa on Infinite Body: http://infinitebody.blogspot.com/2012/11/how-do-we-value-dance-and-dancers.html

Movement Research in Residence at the New Museum:
Proposals for Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater Fifty Years Later

This event was moderated by Carla Peterson
Prior to tonight's program, Movement Research (MR) solicited questions from the greater MR community regardign the imprint that Judson Dance Theater (1962-1964) continues to make on contemporary performance. These questions were shared with the audience, debated, discusssed, and voted upon. Ultimately, four questions were selected by attendees as focus topics for further investigation by artists nominated to lead a series of week-long performance laboratories and open rehearsals at the New Museum. This event was presented as part of "Movement Research in Residence at the New Museum: Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater Fifty Years Later."
