Vivid Space Composition Brunch Salon with Margit Galanter

Vivid Space Composition Brunch Salon
Saturday, February 15, 9:30 – 11:30AM
Please bring some food or drink or just yourself!

Having spent several years in research and performance on the multivolumetric and trans-aspected realm of movement, language, and space/place, Margit Galanter will come to Pieter PASD to present some material and be in conversation with you, the participants in an informal brunch-art-dance-conversation-salon.  For a few years, Margit has been working on a dance poetry project called Relay. In some way, this will be an elemental basis for the salon. After a week’s residency in North Joshua Tree at feral.home studio, it is honestly unknown what will turn up- be discovered, uncovered … perhaps untamable, wordless, or mirror-clear. Together, we will spontaneously compose to reveal some kind of live space.

MARGIT GALANTER is a movement investigator and dance poet living in Oakland, CA. Her practice, Physical Intelligence, encompasses her unique research perspective, helping people experience the innate clarity and vitality one can uncover through the potency of movement. Margit is trained as a movement artist, Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitionercm, and Chinese energetic practitioner. Her fascination regarding the construction and value of movement has drawn her to collaborative embodied research for decades.

In dance, Margit has studied and collaborated extensively in Tuning Scores with Lisa Nelson, K.J. Holmes, and Karen Nelson, as well as luminaries such as Steve Paxton, Suprapto Suryodarmo, Daniel Lepkoff, Stephanie Skura, and Benoit LaChambre. In her tenure in NYC, she produced innovative dance and embodied language research through graduate studies at NYU, was Dramaturg for Miguel Gutierrez, and began a communal relationship with Daria Fain and Robert Kocik, which is infinitely inspiring until today. From 2006 – 2008, she co-directed Earthdance, where she revitalized their programming through instigating projects such as the SEEDS Festival and the Harriet Tubman Healthy Living Experience.  Once in the Bay Area, she created a festival for embodied language, called Words and Deeds (with the help of Brianna Skellie!). She sees clients individually, performs, and teaches nationally and locally in the movement arts, both on her own, and in collaboration with Abby Crain, as Art Workouts, and is co-editing and writing in a book on the work of Amerta Movement.
