A free Monday night movement-based performance series for experimentation, emerging ideas and works-in-progress. Artists are selected by a rotating committee of peers and join Movement Research Artists-in-Residence and international guests. Initiated in 1991, the series takes place September - June in the Judson Memorial Church Meeting Room. Click here for full schedule.

Founded in 1978, 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. Visit for more information.
