BEGINNERS WELCOME!

ABOUT THE CLASS:

Emily will guide the group through focused practices of dance fundamentals to facilitate new coordination, strength, and conditions for vivid dancing.  Touch, improvisational scores, and restorative practices will fertilize creative, personal, and interpersonal signatures of the dancing.

We will investigate our anatomy and expand our palettes of how we move through the world. Over the course of the classes, creative assignments will generate play and perspective about our personal dances through New York City.

There is a possibility of performance and continued workshops and classes for participants in the spring.

ALTAER WILD SPIRIT MOUNTAIN RETREAT 2013

Thursday August 15th thru Sunday August 19th, 2013

http://altaer.org/wild-spirit-mountain-retreat-2013/

DANCE: Practical Space: An exploration of performance as practice, with 26 events

In “Practical Space” Anneke Hansen Dance investigates the act of performance and its application to the creation of a dance. By repetition of a 40 minute piece of choreography during 26 intimate, informal showings over the course of 5 weeks, we craft, explore, and hone our identities as dancers in order to more thoroughly develop our understanding of both this specific dance practice and of dance performance more generally. This is not a rehearsal, and it is not a premiere.

Join us in reflecting upon this particular human pursuit and contribute the element critical to the success of this experiment: an audience. Come once, come many times…

FREE! Seating is limited to 5 people per showing. Reservations required.
RESERVE YOUR TICKETS HERE! 

@ Gina Gibney Dance Center
890 Broadway, 5th Floor (NYC)

Choreography: Anneke Hansen
Dancers: Ashley Handel, Anneke Hansen, Belinda He, Irene Hsi, Alice MacDonald, and Emily Moore

DANCE PERFORMANCE: Blues as a part of Some Sweet Day at MOMA

Deborah Hay (American, b.1941) is widely considered one of the most influential and relevant choreographers in experimental dance today. As a founding member of New York’s Judson Dance Theatre in the 1960s, she took part in radically reshaping American dance by opening it up to other art forms and by shifting it away from spectacle and toward ordinary, everyday movements. For Some sweet day, Hay contributes a new dance titled Blues, which was inspired Hay’s vision of a dance for 12 African American and 15 white American dancers in the Museum’s Marron Atrium and lobby. Addressing issues of race and social reality, Blues is a means “to ground the space in life.” Performance approx. 30 min.

A response with Sarah Michelson and Deborah Hay will be held on Saturday, November 3 at 4:00 p.m.

-Hang Out Session (social forum for artists and audience) takes place immediately after each performance.

About Invisible/Visible:
Invisible/Visible continues to follow the works of French Philosopher Gilles Deleuze.  According to Deleuze “Beings are no longer seen as the realization of forms, but instead as the actualization of processes in becoming.”  Being is “in becoming.”  We refused to be identified with a pre-existing Idea of what we are.  We are Real without resembling to Idea. We have moved on from the concept of “I think therefore I am”, from the concept that Mind is superior to Body. Dancers know in their bones that Mind and Body have no distinction.
We are Real right now right here. Where? In the Body, with the Body. Body holds the key to our ontology of Being. But our perception of Body is not quite caught up. The image of Body is still in the cave.  Invisible/Visible is a study of the Ecology of Image of Body.For Invisible/Visible, the movement oscillates in and out of the space and the bodies of dancers Melissa GuerreroElise KnudsonAstonkyleEmily Moore, andAlice MacDonald. Following a detailed mathematical description of movement scale (by math consultant and music composer Geoff Matters), the dancers dance a movement phrase from a micro scale to the excess – pushing the Body to the limit.We want to acknowledge that:
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the city council.We also received grants from American Music Center’s 2011 Live Music for Dance Program, The Experimental Television Center’s Finishing Funds program, and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Swing Space program through a real estate donation from Capstone Equities.. The Experimental Television Center’s Finishing Funds program is supported by the Electronic Media and Film Program at the New York State Council on the Arts.We want to thank Experimental Intermedia, Roulette, and DANY Studio.

We also thank The Wooster Group.

DANCE PERFORMANCE: Co/motion at WHITNEY BIENNIAL 2012

WHAT:
co/motion is a dance that weaves movement of sound and bodies, the intimate chaos of family with the structure of composition, and the instinctive brilliance of children with the talents of their parents. The co/motion cast is a diverse ensemble of accomplished and professional dance artists, musicians, composers, and performers, aged 7 months to 40 something years. This improvisatory choreography highlights the (extra)ordinary dance of the everyday.

WHY: (by Margaret Sunghe Paek)
Because we’d love to share our practice with you…
Because we were invited to be a part of Alicia Hall Moran and Jason Moran’s week at the Whitney Biennial…
Because Nate and Lanette told Alicia about the practice we first shared in December at Danspace at St. Mark’s Church for Movement Research’s 20th Anniversary Fall Festival…
Because Ishmael Houston-Jones asked me to make a dance for that Fall Festival…
Because I was inspired by a group dance Shelley Senter directed in 1999 that included Catherine Sands and her children and which she wrote about in Contact Quarterly…
Because Barbara Dilley, my thesis mentor, encouraged me to read that article…
Because my thesis performance was a trio collaboration with my then 9 month old daughter and my cellist/composer husband in our home…
Because we’d love to share our practice with you.
