Mårten Spångberg continues The Dancing Seminar: A Listening Dance, a series of 12 lectures on dance and choreography
12:00–3:00 p.m. · Duplex
The Dancing Seminar: A Listening Dance combines the theoretical nuances of a seminar with the affective qualities of dance, linking reason and reflection with the sensual and intuitive. In 12 three-hour long sessions Spångberg addresses topics thoroughly embedded in movement, dance and choreography and simultaneously attempts to place these in the broader contexts of labor, engagement, urgency, economy and politics. Rather than expanding notions of choreography, this series explores the possibilities of thought through dance and the concept of dance as a practice of truth. This series of seminars is co-hosted with Movement Research.

Sunday Sessions presents the live debut of New York City duo MASKS. Comprised of Alexis Georgopoulos and Max Ravitz the group’s sound is made almost exclusively with analog synthesizers and drum machines and takes in the breadth of underground dance music history, drawing on Detroit Techno, Chicago House, Minimal Techno, Acid, Cosmic and Italo. Georgopoulos may be better known as Arp (Smalltown Supersound/RVNG Intl). Ravitz has recently shared bills with Steve Summers (L.I.E.S./Future Times) and Terekke (L.I.E.S.)

Sunday Sessions is a weekly presentation of performance, moving images, dance, music, and discursive programs. Its mission is to embrace live arts as an integral aspect of contemporary practice and ask how art forms, which unfold in the here and now, produce specific ways of thinking and useful means to engage with the broader world. Every Sunday different artists, curators, thinkers and a range of other cultural agents are invited to share their latest projects and ideas with the MoMA PS1 audience.
