Movement Research at the Judson Church
Fall 2015 / Winter 2016 Season
a free, ongoing, Monday night performance series of  
experimentation and works-in-progress 

Movement Research at the Judson Church is a free, high visibility low-tech weekly forum for the exploration of movement-based ideas, held at the beautiful Judson Memorial Church. Throughout its 22 year history, the acclaimed Monday night series has provided a safe haven for experimentation and investigation for dance and performance artists from New York and beyond. Movement Research at the Judson Church has hosted generations of dance artists often at critical moments in the development of their work and careers. The program presents over 100 artists in roughly 30 evenings of performance each year. Artists are selected by a rotating committee of  peer artists, and join Movement Research Artists-In-Residence and international guests each season in performing at the historic Judson Memorial Church.
The Fall 2015/Winter 2016 season starts on September 14. Performances will be on Mondays from September 14, 2015 through January 25, 2016 at 8pm (doors open at 7:45pm) at the Judson Memorial Church. Admission is free. There are no reservations, so arrive early.  Selection Committee members for Fall 2015/Winter 2016 are Leslie Cuyjet, Neal Medlyn, Katy Pyle, Paul Singh, and Eleanor Smith.
For updates on the schedule, please go to www.movementresearch.org.
Please note: When referring to this series, or any performance in the series, we request that you use the full title, Movement Research at the Judson Church, to distinguish this as a program separate from activities and events sponsored by Judson Memorial Church.  

Movement Research thanks the clergy, staff and congregation of Judson Church - Judson continues to be a beacon for free spirits in the arts and politics and a leader among progressive faith communities in the city and nation for over 100 years.
