In developmental body organizations, X is one of the first patterns to develop. It is a pattern of contraction and expansion, radiating from the core outward and returning to the center. HV Movement Collective creates an improvisational score that does just that, following this fundamental pattern through space and their bodies. Through a collaborative process they will explore the symbology of X, through gesture, body architecture and marking of spaces with their physical presence. The performance will be durational, occurring over the course of a few hours, playing also with the contraction and expansion of time.
Hudson Valley Movement Collective is currently in residence at Art Society of Kingston. It was formed in Dec 2018, by a consortium of professional dancers and movers residing in the Hudson Valley. HVMC is a community formed to unite movement based artists and enthusiasts, and create greater visibility and accessibility. We regularly host workshops, Work in Progress showings and hope to provide more services to the community.
