Dance Lab Choreographic Artist Residency And Open Performance
Project 2014-08-06 09:54:52 +1200
Dance Lab at BODY FESTIVAL 2014 - We are 75% there - help us cross the finish line!
So who are we?
We are Movement Art Practice - M.A.P creates opportunities for choreographic research and practice in New Zealand. We provide workshops, master classes, discussions, residencies and performance platforms that nurture excellence in contemporary dance. Check out our Website Here for more information about us.
So what are we doing?
We are bringing Christchurch born (Melbourne based) dance artist Madeleine Krenek home to be our dance artist in resident. Madeleine will be researching ideas for the first draft of her new dance work. She will be working with five professional dancers and collaborating with acclaimed musician Greg Malcolm.
Dance Lab will run through-out the 2014 Body Festival in Christchurch and the most exciting thing is that Maddy's rehearsals will be open for public viewing. So you can pop down and have a cuppa with us, meet the artists and watch the dancers in action.
We will be welcoming visitor feedback through-out the residency and will have a ‘virtual visitor book’ where you can write a response to the work on a sticky note or video it in our photo booth. Dance Lab is a new platform for artist and audience interaction with the aim of creating deeper understanding of our artform and the unique artists our community fosters.
So then what?
Come to our Dance Lab Open Performance see a showing of the material generated by Maddy and our team of professional dancers. In addition, five of our local M.A.P choreographers: Julia Harvie, Phillipa Cosgrove, Sarah Elsworth, Nicola Collie and Julia McKerrow will also share their choreographic works in progress. Dance Lab will feature 16 M.A.P dancers in addition to local musicians. This informal and fun evening of dance will centre around discussion and audience feedback - think a "behind the scenes" view of dance in the making.
Where will my funds go?
Your funds will go directly to supporting our artists so that they can be justly remunerated for all their hard work.
Rewards for Pledgers
Pledgers recieve their very own thank-you dance move wohooo! See rewards section for details.

Can you help us with the final push?
03/10/2014 at 1:08 PM
We only have four more days to get to our target - it's all or nothing. We only need to raise another $880 - that's only $220 per day between now and our cut off.
We'd love your help. You, the wonderful people who already believe in, have engaged with, and pledged on our project. Would you share this campaign on Facebook or Twitter? Tell a friend? Send an email to someone who might be interested?
Thank you so much for what you've already done. We don't want your support and investement in M.A.P to go to waste - it's time for one last push!
All or nothing.
01/10/2014 at 10:58 AM
All or nothing is the phrase of the day here at M.A.P!
We are doing everything we can to make sure that all you wonderful pledges who have supported us this far are joined by a few more to get us across the finish line.
Don't forget to pop into St Michael's this week if you're in Christchurch. It's a great chance to see what we're up to. Open viewing every day. See http://www.movementartpractice.org/map-the-body.html for more details.
We've cracked two thirds!

We are very excited here at M.A.P HQ - we've cracked two thirds of our campaign! This is good news, as a large percentage of campaigns that make it over the 65% mark reach their target.
We have one more week, one more big push to get there. Thanks for pledging and keep on spreading the love.
Could this be your dance move?

Wow - look what happened overnight. While many of us were hard at work with Julia Harvie, lots of you wonderful people were pledging on our campaign - thanks so much.
It's all hands to the pump at M.A.P now with our choreographers and dancers working towards not only this performance, but participating in and attending many of the events in the Body Festival. What a feast! It was great to have our artist in residence, Madeleine Krenek, working with us last night too.
Here's a photo from one of last week's rehearsals. We hope your interest is piqued!
Two more weeks!
