Choreographer: Mariah Maloney
In this video I share excerpts of three new choreographic explorations that I presented on April 8, 2015 at The College at Brockport, SUNY as part of Scholars Day. I am excited to share some of these new works this summer in NYC and Hollins University, Roanoke, Virginia.
Solo work #1 Space Pixelation II (working title) for Lynea D’Aprix with live performance and original composition by Richard DeLaney. Costume by Emma Scholl.
Solo work #2 Untitled for Michelle Glynn. Music: Pedestrian at Best by Courtney Barnett.
New Work in progress There is a Girl, When She Laughs (working title) expands and unearths raw body intelligence through improvisation and choreography. For dancers Christy Benincasa and Nanako Horikawa. Music: Koi Ladki Hai by Lata Mangeshker and Udit Narayan.
A special thank you to the talented and generous artists for being a part of this creative process.
Maloney danced with seminal postmodern choreographer Trisha Brown for eight years where she explored interdisciplinary collaborations, improvisation and problem solving as composition and performance. In this presentation, Maloney will share new choreography inspired by her investigations with dancers located in New York City, Rochester and The College at Brockport followed by a discussion on structure, inspiration and process including geographical locations behind the work.
