A Year of Dance Making with Mariah Maloney

Presenter Mariah Maloney, assistant professor Dance. Maloney danced with seminal postmodern choreographer Trisha Brown for eight years where she explored improvisation and problem solving as composition and performance. In this presentation, Maloney will share new choreography followed by a lecture demonstration on structure, inspiration and intent behind works created in the past year. Light Solo performed by Maloney is in direct dialogue with Trisha Brown’s approach to dance making. Talvi Valo (Winter Light) a dance for ten women inspired by a recent trip to Helsinki, Finland where Maloney experienced the quiet and minimal light of January will be performed by Jenna Ellis, Kara Foote, Catherine Gesford, Christina Gorman, Lauren Saint-Louis, Chelsea Spraker, Xiao Wang, Jennifer Helft and Meghan McGuire. Sliver danced by Mariah Maloney is an interdisciplinary collaboration in dialogue with Visual Artist Cinda Kelly’s paper and wood sculpture.
