Movement Research is one of the world’s leading laboratories for the investigation of dance and movement-based forms. Valuing the individual artist, their creative process and their vital role within society, Movement Research is dedicated to the creation and implementation of free and low-cost programs that nurture and instigate discourse and experimentation. Movement Research strives to reflect the cultural, political and economic diversity of its moving community, including artists and audiences alike.
Movement Research offers a residency program for New York-based artists providing commissions, rehearsal space, performances, national and international exchanges and related opportunities designed to support the individualized creative process. Movement Research offers two programs providing ongoing opportunities for artists to show works in progress. They also produce their own publications/ performance journal. Movement Research offers youth programs in collaboration with NYC public schools. They host the Artist of Color Council: A cohort of artists of color addressing cultural diversity, equity, and sustainable structural integration in MR’s operations, programming, outreach, and throughout its extended communities.
