Join The Moving Architects for a Creative Movement class! Creative Movement is a joyful way to explore movement, develop physical skills, explore elements of dance, channel energy, stimulate imagination, and promote creativity. Creative Movement uses body actions to communicate images, ideas, and feelings, all in a fun and encouraging class setting. The Moving Architects will also be bringing their “Bubble,” an ethereal, cloudlike space to perform in. Please wear comfortable clothing.
The Moving Architects (TMA), led by Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton, is currently seeking invested, inquisitive, and intelligent female dancers for projects beginning summer 2018. Dancers should have a movement foundation grounded in ballet and modern dance forms with the ability to execute aggressive, physically demanding, technical, and articulated movement. Additional skills needed: working intimately within an ensemble; ease with improvisation, movement manipulation, and partner work; and readiness for an investigatory rehearsal process. Rehearsals are Sundays and/or Tuesday evenings, and dancers are paid for performances as well as on a project-by-project basis. Preference is given to dancers available for an out of state residency August 7-11, and women of color are encouraged to apply.
Fill out form at link below, which includes a video link to a 2-minute solo improvisation and a headshot along with requested information. Note: Dance reels will NOT be accepted or links to websites as video submission. Application deadline: JUNE 12. Select dancers will be asked to attend a company class on the afternoon of Sunday, June 24, in NYC. Invitation to attend class will be made by June 19.

Triskelion Arts presents The Moving Architects “America Dawn”
The Muriel Schulman Theater at Triskelion Arts
106 Calyer St.
Brooklyn, NY 11222
Tickets: $18 purchased in advance, $22 at the door
Purchase Tickets: triskelionarts.org
Choreography: Erin Carlisle Norton
Multi-disciplinary Collaborator: gwen charles
Composer: Ralph Lewis
Performers: Caitlin Bailey, Maggie Beutner, Léla Groom, Rachel Gill, Jenny Gram, Ashley Peters
Erin Carlisle Norton, director of the female-centric dance company The Moving Architects, will debut a new work “American Dawn” at Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn, NY from November 30-Dec 2. The work draws inspiration from a poem written by her grandfather Thomas John Carlisle “America Dawn” from 1976 inspired by a Louise Nevelson sculpture of the same name from 1959/69. A dance inspired by a poem, inspired by a sculpture. Collaborating with multidisciplinary artist gwen charles on video and design with their shared aesthetic of layering multi-sensorial elements, together Norton and charles are able to transgress borders between dance, art, and cinematography. Intergenerational collaboration with family extends even further in “America Dawn” through the use of sound with composer and second cousin Ralph Lewis and his added vision of sound painting and temporal landscapes with live musicians performing the score. “America Dawn” lifts and brings to the stage the original sculpture’s textures and proportions, the poems’ optimism and cyclicity, and the beauty and architectural cityscapes of both, intertwining dance, original music, and multi-media projections, fully realized through the physically strong, exacting, and emotive six female dancers/performers of The Moving Architects.
