Carrying Across: Crossing Disciplines as a Form of Translation, edited by Autumn Widdows

Sound, Body, Movement workshop at CalArts

In addition to their more conventional roles, musicians can (and do) move, dancers can (and do) make sound. From at least Fluxus onward, this awareness has informed seminal works of experimental music and dance. Professor of Music Michael Pisaro and guest artist Abigail Levine propose a series of workshops—open to students across the institute—that address this (becoming) artist, culminating in an informal performance.

FORM—FROM | Movement Research Process Lab

NOVEMBER 20 | 1-4pm 

Open to all. No dance training necessary.

 

Abrons Art Center | 466 Grand St

Info: movementresearch.org

 

FORM—FROM is a love fest and takedown of abstract form. We'll see how much we can create, how many meanings we can pull from the simplest forms, attentive to what gets left out as well as what makes it in. We will work with movement and text, tight structure and improvisation. We will consider the different approaches to these issues across dance and the visual arts. And surrounding our work, the questions: Do certain forms belong and not belong to us? What work can experimental form do in urgent political times? Feel free to bring material of any sort you would like to work from. Dancers, non-dancers, and everyone between and beside, you are welcome.
