apexart :: Public Program :: Coding the Body

In conjunction with the exhibition Coding the Body organized by Leah Buechley.


Saturday, April 26: 4 pm
apexart, 291 Church St, NYC

Created and performed by Martha Eddy

A reflection and homage to the changing codes of the human body as it moves through life. Centered in somatic movement and dance, this interactive performance invites the audience to recognize their body changes and movement patterns since birth, to crawling, creeping, diagonals, spirals…and onwards.

MARTHA EDDY, CMA, RSMT, EdD began studies with both Irmgard Bartenieff and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen in the 1970's. She went on to serve on the faculties of their Certification Programs in Laban Movement Analysis & Body-Mind Centering. In 1990 she helped to promote the field of Somatic Movement Education & Therapy with the first ever Somatic Movement Therapy Training (SMTT), now known as Dynamic Embodiment (DE-SMTT). She applies DE-SMT in her work with dancers, children and cancer survivors. Her dance system BodyMind Dancing has been offered at universities (NYU, Columbia Univ., Hope College), conferences (Pilates, Kestenberg, NDEO), and internationally at dance festivals since 1986. She is currently writing a book on the subject.
