This is a Movement Research Studies Project titled “When the Creation Changes its Creator,” moderated by Sondra Loring and KJ Holmes. Panelists included Julie Carr, Danielle Goldman, Julyen Hamilton, Miguel Gutierrez, and Jodi Melnick. This event took place at Jimmy’s No. 43, November 30, 2011.
5 talkers tackled the ticklish subject of terpsicorian investigation. Is there room for passion and discipline? What part does courage and patience play in the connection between an artist and their work?
This event was produced as part of the Movement Research Festival Fall 2011: DEVOTION/RIGOR/SUSTAINABILITY, curated by Sondra Loring and KJ Holmes.
About the Movement Research Festival
The Movement Research Festival finds its roots in the Improvisation Festival/New York (IF/NY), initiated in 1992 by Sondra Loring (a MR Artist-in-Residence at the time) and Julie Carr. For five years (1999-2003), Movement Research hosted the IF/NY as one of its programs, under the curation of Programming Director Amanda Loulaki. In 2004, Movement Research created an artist-curator format and beginning in 2006, Movement Research established the festival as a twice-annual event. The fall festival is shaped by Movement Research’s programming staff in collaboration with Festival Curators, who bring their own interests and ideas to specific festival events. The spring festival is produced by a group of artist-curators who determine the emphasis, shape, and programming. Together, these two approaches 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.
