The weekly Movement Lab is intended for Middlebury faculty and staff interested in participating in playful movement exploration. The first hour is dedicated to improvisational play through movement and the second hour involves experimentation with the choreographic process and collaboratively generating material or scores to be developed and shared informally with the community at the close of the semester. No previous experience necessary.

We know from our language that the body is deeply engaged in our understanding of the world. A joke is side-splitting. We get butterflies in our stomach. Our eyes pop with surprise. Our blood runs cold. But my guest today says humans have radically retreated from the wisdom of the body’s signals to a hegemony of the brain, the intellect. In many ways, sitting at keyboards and screens, we’ve abandoned, forgotten the embodied cognition in the work of hands and backs. Time to get it back, he says. This hour On Point, when the brain is not enough. Intelligence in the flesh. – Tom Ashbrook
