Presented in conjunction with Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater Fifty Years Later: Movement Research in Residence.
Prior to tonight’s program, Movement Research (MR) will solicit questions from the greater MR community regarding the imprint that Judson Dance Theater (1962–64) continues to make on contemporary performance. These questions will be shared with the audience, debated, discussed, and voted upon. Ultimately, four questions will be selected by attendees as focus topics for further investigation by artists nominated to lead a series of week-long performance laboratories and open rehearsals at the New Museum. This event is presented as part of “Movement Research in Residence at the New Museum: Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater Fifty Years Later.” Carla Peterson (Artistic Director, New York Live Arts) will moderate.
To propose a question in advance, please email Travis Chamberlain, Public Programs Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
