She and the movement are in an incrementally constant dialogue in order to reveal to the various idiosyncrasies of the performing female body.

      Museum of Art and Design

      Participating in this one-day, museum-wide event.

      Open Movement Practice
      I will lead an open level movement class drawing from elements of social, folk, and contemporary dance forms, as well as from ordinary action. Resisting the urge to transform ourselves into blank slates, we will abandon the term ‘neutral’ and uncover our bodies’ inherent knowledge and history. By using sensorial, perceptual, anatomical, spatial and imaginative pathways, we’ll amplify, morph and direct our individual movement patterning. We will play with technical structures, improvisational concepts, choreographic frameworks and performing. Class will allow us to continuously activate our bodies through space, while discovering the kinesthetic sensitivity of a dynamic body-in-motion.

      Whitney Biennial NYC
      Live on 5 Songs: Milka Djordjevich and Chris Peck
      The Whitney Museum, Lobby Gallery
      Choreographer Milka Djordjevich and composer Chris Peck imagine a reversal of the historical divide between music and dance in order to rediscover music as a practice of the body and dance as a mode of listening. A series of collaborative duets accumulate to form an experience in which dance and music become indistinguishable.

      Martin Kersels: Live on 5 Songs
      Martin Kersels‘s 5 Songs is a sculpture that has double life as a stage for performance. Designed with the idea that the performer needs to adapt to the surface and the materiality of the sculpture–and therefore never truly feels comfortable–5 Songs attempts to be an extension to any performer while at the same time being extended by any performer. Kersels has curated an eclectic mix of performances to take place on and around 5 Songs that occur throughout the duration of the Biennial.
