The leading theme of the Movement Research Festival Fall 2017 is “invisible material”.

Artist-curators Jonathan Gonzalez, Zavé Martohardjono, and EmmaGrace Skove-Epes approach Movement Research’s Fall Festival by considering collective practices and the workings of collectivity amidst economies of individualism in this current moment. Comprised of performances, workshops, and gatherings led by collectives, invisible material ponders interventions of unfolding in the fold, meandering and mess-making, and coordinating in the in-between.
