ART WORKOUTS is an ongoing dialogue/experiment between Margit Galanter, Abby Crain, and whatever and whoever crosses our path. We engage with the world around us for artistic revelation and inspiration, culling what seems relevant, problematic, brilliant. We are primarily movers so the work comes through the body, performance, ideas, and that mysterious assemblage, presence. We periodically arrange workshops so that we can meet and explore with groups of people. This is when the work starts to really hum. Margit Galanter is a movement investigator and dance poet living in Oakland. Her fascination with the construction and value of movement has drawn her to embodied research and performance for decades. – Arts Site: www.margitg.wordpress.com ; Practice: www.physicalintelligence.org . Abby Crain enjoys art that is awkward, difficult, and transformative. She teaches frequently, and creates solo and collaborative performance experiments when the mood seizes her. Past credits include dancing with Miguel Gutierrez and the Powerful People (NY) for six years, being a member of David Dorfman Dance (NY), and working with Bay Area luminaries Sarah Shelton Mann and Kneejerk Dance Project.
