Center for Art Research - Movement Lab

Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 3:00pm to 5:00pm

510 Oak 510 oak st, eugene, OR 97401

The Movement Lab explores the generative capacities of sense perception, interpersonal relationships, and group dynamics. Movement is thought of in broad terms as gestures of cognition and communication. Together we are looking to understand something about touch, kinesthetic perception, and social choreography, with each other and our lived experiences as resources. How can we move differently by paying attention to our senses?

The workshop will be facilitated by video and performance artist Agnese Cebere. Two hours long, it consists of task-based exercises inspired by a range of somatic practices, and discussion among the participants. No experience is necessary and anyone can participate. Please note: This event will be recorded for future use by the artist. The Movement Lab was developed by Agnese Cebere and dance artist and scholar Sasha Portyannikova in conjunction with the Media Studies course Urban Tactics and Performance taught by Nitin Sawhney at The New School in Spring 2018.

Presented by the City of Eugene, Eugene Contemporary Art & the Center for Art Research (CFAR) at the University of Oregon.
