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.

In an informal discussion led by Luis Lara Malvecías, participants discussed the artistic underground movement today. Does it exist? What is it? How does it relate to the social and political changes occurring in the world today?

This event was part of the Not Festival: On horns, hair, hens, haze, and other (Orgi)anics things, organized by Luis Lara Malvecías. The participants in the Not Festival Studies Project included artists from different cultural backgrounds who live and work in New York as well as guest artists from abroad.

Studies Project is an artist-curated series of panel discussions, performances and/or other formats that focus on provocative and timely issues of aesthetics and philosophy in the intersection of dance and social politics, confronting and instigated by the dance and performance community.
