On September 16, Movement Research (MR) solicited questions from the greater MR community with regards to the imprint that Judson Dance Theater (1962–64) continues to make on contemporary performance. Four proposals were 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.
On Sunday, December 16, those artists share the results of their investigations in a series of presentations filled with performance, experimentation, and dialogue.
Carla Peterson (Artistic Director, New York Live Arts) emcees.
The presentation will take place on Sunday, December 16 at 3:00 pm. Admission is $10 Members, $12 General Public.
