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.

 This is a Movement Research Studies Project titled ICPP: Looking to New Models at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. May 3, 2011.

An excerpt from the mission statement for the Institute for Curatorial Practices in Performance states, “As we work to understand how performance can function within multiple landscapes, we must look to new models for understanding contemporary performance practice.” ICPP Director Sam Miller and panelists Ralph Lemon, Judy Hussie-Taylor, and Lydia Bell engaged in an informal discussion regarding how the (ICCP), on the brink of its inaugural session, planned to address the needs and desires of constantly evolving communities of artists.

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.
