Dance & Architecture Exploratory Lab (NYC)

By Events No Comments

Dance & Architecture Exploratory Lab (NYC)
October 21, 2022

The Moving Architects will explore the intersection of architecture and movement in collaboration with Professors Ashlie Boelkins and Olivia Pontiff and Master of Architecture graduate students from the School of Architecture & Design at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.  Students will develop an understanding of Laban space harmony as led by Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton, and immerse in a workshop between the students and professional dancers.  The Moving Architects will explore movement in response to the student’s designs or “choreography” of their creative works.  The goal of the Exploratory Lab is to ignite a creative process for both disciplines where the bodies’ relationship to emotion and space are in focus.

Split Bill performance featuring The Moving Architects and Alan Good/Allen Fogelsanger

Green Space

Long Island City, NY

Tickets: $17 online, $20 at the door

Building on an aesthetic of female-centric, physically charged and collaborative dance works, The Moving Architects under Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton presents their first new work since the Pandemic. Looking at the physicality of polarities – strength/fragility, bound/free, stability/instability, direct/indirect intention, touch/no touch – the company’s latest two works are grounded in the physical explorations of the states that the company has embodied and navigated this last year.  “O my soul” explores grief from historical and contemporary perspectives, and “The Vibe” evokes the joy and release of moving in space as a reaction to the confines of the last two years.  Wearable and moveable props and evocative sounds scores add texture, imagery, depth and nuance to both dance works.

Choreography: Artistic Director Erin Carlisle Norton in collaboration with the dancers
Dancers: Bethany Chang, Emily Cicio, Michaela Esteban, Zoe Kaplan, and Kalyan Sayre
Costume Props: “The Vibe” by gwen Charles, “O my soul” by Erin Carlisle Norton with thanks to Jaimie Froemming and Liz Hobbs

“O my soul” and “The Vibe” was supported by the For the Artists! Residency Program at MOtiVE Brooklyn. The Moving Architects also gratefully acknowledges that this production was made possible in part through a residency grant offered by SMUSH Gallery, Monira Foundation, and Mana Contemporary.
