Movement Research at the Judson Church
Judson Church has a long and storied connection to modern dance, and Movement Research's series continues to place this holy spot at the forefront of the form. A group of peer artists selects the program of experimental choreography, which tends to place its focus on those works that are still in process rather than finished products. In September, the lineup includes Barbie Diewald, Alina Ruiz Folini, Angela Goh and Kensaku Shinohara (Sept 14); Taja Lindley, Sari Nordman, Jen Rosenblit and David Thomson (Sept 21); and Marc Arthur, Jasmine Hearn, Launch Movement Experiment and Rosalind Goldberg (Sept 28).
