The event consists of a series of site-specific performances and installations, art exhibitions, jams, screenings, lectures and discussions of topics that are relevant to contemporary dance and art today, as well as contemporary dance classes and workshops.
Renowned international dance teachers will lead the dance classes and workshops. Teachers include Jeremy Nelson, Judith Sanchez Ruiz, Luis Lara Malvacias, Jonathan Kinzel and Melanie Maar.
Participants include artists from different cultural backgrounds who live and work in New York, as well as guest artists from abroad. The TRANSART collective – an international collective of artists from around the world – and Galou gallery will also be involved in the final development of the event. Movement Research will co-produce two evenings of Studies
Project in partnership with the Not Festival. The title chosen for this edition of the "NOT FESTIVAL" is offered as a framework. Participants can get in and out of it; re-frame it; re-conceptualize it; and fully remove themselves from it to allow meaning to be created in tandem with their creative process.
