The performances by Aleksandra Borys and Wojciech Grudziński are presented as part of Movement Research’s Global Practice Sharing (GPS) exchange program, in partnership with Art Stations Foundation (Poznan), Institute of Music and Dance (Warsaw) and Polish Cultural Institute New York (NYC). The artists? residency was organized with the support of Art Stations Foundation with funding from the Institute of Music and Dance (Poland) and the GPS/Global Practice Sharing program of Movement Research with funding from the Trust for Mutual Understanding (USA).
Movement Research is a free, high visibility low-tech forum for experimentation, emerging ideas and works-in-progress held in the Fall and Spring seasons. 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.
