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.


Movement Research Studies Project, "Puppetry and Dance" - April 5, 2016
Conceived by Nami Yamamoto

With Patti Bradshaw, Chris Green, Dan Hurlin, Christopher Williams, Nami Yamamoto

Panelists will discuss their various perspectives on the integration of puppetry and dance in live performance. Like dance, puppetry is a hands-on, physical art form. What happens when the puppet appears onstage? This conversation will explore how artists are bringing these two forms together in unique ways and how they complement and inform one another.

Movement Research Studies Project, "Band of Outsiders Women" - March 1, 2016
Organized and Moderated by Sam Kim With Lorene Boubshian,  Moria Brennan, Shelia Lewandoski, Noopur Singa, Adrienne Truscott

Women dominate the dance and performance field in numbers, but not in visibility, ‘success,’ or positions of power. Let’s keep the issue at the forefront and explore how to rectify this. One of the biggest untapped resources is women helping and supporting other women more vocally and consciously—as the majority, our collective efforts would have a massive impact on leveling the field. In this panel, we’ll discuss how to effect change and meaningfully support the majority of our fellow practitioners. Any gender expression is welcome and all are encouraged to participate.
