- The Neilma Sidney Theatre
- October 2 - December 11 (Closed: November 27)
Open Movement offers free weekly movement improvisations and artist-led workshops in Performance Space’s theatres. Participants are invited to move to curated soundscapes by various artists and musicians together but in no particular way, every Sunday from 12-4pm. At 4pm we will shift to Open Movement Workshops where various artists share their self-proclaimed practices of embodiment, dance, and performance exploration.
In its second year, we are working with artists who are interested in the role embodiment can play in the process of healing. Artists will build these practices over multiple workshops or in one-off emerging practice forms. The workshops inform the improvisation and vice versa as we build on ways of regulating the nervous system and expanding what it means to process information in the body. *No dance experience of any kind is necessary.
Check the website as we build the season.
Theatres are located on the 4th floor with elevator access, gender-neutral restrooms, and a sprung floor equipped with a house sound system.
Open Movement is a revival of the eponymous program that started in 1979 and was at the foundational and collectivizing core of Performance Space 122 (now Performance Space New York).
Open Movement is facilitated by Monica Mirabile and Ana Beatriz Sepúlveda, with workshops and musicians organized by Monica Mirabile. For any questions, Monica can be reached at email@example.com. Visitors are encouraged to take a look at Open Movement’s Community Guidelines. If needed, Zoom can be requested if you would like to join us virtually.
