The Catalog of Body Movements
10/26/2016 3:41pm

The Catalog of Body Movements Players are accepting new members, @Michaela Lowenstein, and you'd be welcome to join, along with your friends @Erudeity, @Espiritismo, @Laura Camila, @Sarah201220, @DiegoDeLarge, and whoever else would be interested.

But keep in mind that Body Movement at this level is serious work. We have long, sweaty rehearsals that can be grueling, as we may practice a seemingly simple movement -- like a quarter turn, or a hair flick -- for hours at a time. It is the only way the full potential of the Movements is unlocked.

We meet tonight in the Black Box at 9. And absolutely, we have a very strong chance of winning the Freaky Dancing Contest. In fact, I don't see how we can lose. This is powerful stuff.

A flyer found in the collection:


Come See

Performed on stage in the Black Box

Watch as the complexes of daily life are demonstrated for your amusement.

Profusely annotated!

SEE the sawing lady
SEE the sweeping man
SEE the resting gentleman
SEE the couple passing through the door

A demonstration of social science at work.

Thursday at 8

Note: Flicker vertigo warning.

I ran across the Catalog of Body Movements in the unsorted stacks in the library today. It was bound in five cardboard crates, wrapped in duct tape. It's a collection of thumb drives, diagrams, illustrations, stereoscopic images, a zoetrope, reel to reel tape, filmstrips, a highly accurate laser distance meter, some bells, a strobe light, and a number of other apparently miscellaneous items. It was compiled by @Nick Gleason, who seems to have disappeared. I am seeking anyone else who was involved in this project and can help assemble the data.
