AUNTS was invited to take part in the conversation surrounding the 50th anniversary of Judson Dance Theater and to specifically address the question:
COLLECTIVE AS CREATIVE COMMUNITY. COLLECTIVE AS INSTITUTION. COLLECTIVE AS GATHERED HISTORIES. COLLECTIVE AS AESTHETIC TRADITION. COLLECTIVE AS AN ABSTRACT IDEA. WHAT IS COLLECTIVE AND WHERE DO WE LOCATE IT? CAN YOU ADDRESS THE INSIDE/OUTSIDE OF COLLECTIVE IN A GREATER CONTEXT? IS THERE AN INSIDE/OUTSIDE OF COLLECTIVE?
For the week we will be in residence in the basement theater of the New Museum with 20 guest artists rehearsing/talking/performing/writting/drawing. We invite you to come visit us and observe and participate in the conversation.
MR in Residence at the New Museum
Rethinking the Imprint of Judson Dance Theater 50 Years Later Through a series of discussions, presentations, artist residencies, and town hall meetings, Movement Research reconsiders the legacy, mythology, and permutations of influence that continue to echo from the occasion of Judson Dance Theater (1962-64). A complete list of residency-related programs will be announced in the fall of 2012. Visit www.movementresearch.org orwww.newmuseum.org for more information.
