Here are a few photos that I took on my phone at the Austria-NYC exchange which I co-curated with Isabel Lewis in collaboration with Martina Hochmuth and Sigrid Gareis. It was initiated by the Austrian Cultural Forum (NYC) in partnership with Movement Research and Tanzquartier Wien. It featured presentations by Austria-based Participants Philipp Gehmacher and Vladimir Miller; united sorry (Frans Poelstra & Robert Steijn); Cabula6 (Jeremy Xido and Claudia Heu); Doris Uhlich and Andrea Salzmann; Anette Baldauf. NYC-based Participants Eagle Ager; Jill Sigman; Melinda Ring; Ann Liv Young; Jenn Joy. I was only able to take photos during Cabula6, Andrea, Jenn, united sorry and Eagle Ager's presentations: [gallery]
I will be leading a dance session as a part of the Movement Research Spring Festival 2009: Roll Call. Come and enjoy a dynamic, rhythmic, high-energy communal movement session for people of all levels and interests. Drawing from elements of social, folk, and contemporary dance forms, as well as athletic training, we will discover the kinaesthetic sensitivity of a dynamic body-in-motion. We will continuously locomote through space discovering co-ordination potential, while rocking out to some sweet jams.
