And there were 20. This work is an exploration of the group mind informed by collaborations with composer Leo Crandall, costume designer Emma Scholl and twenty talented dance artists. The work was developed at The College at Brockport where I directed a Fall Repertory project. I am delighted with the outcome and look forward to future collaborations with the artists!
Mariah Maloney’s work emerged from a dialogue with Syracuse-based artist Leo Crandall at the Rochester Fringe Festival, when she and three of her dancers attended his concert. Maloney says, “I was very inspired and have since reached out to him… We are now discussing future collaborations and I am thrilled to be in dialogue with his music in ‘Le Jardin de Vingt Sculptures!’” She also was inspired by her ongoing collaboration with costume designer Emma Scholl, and says that their collaboration “deeply informs this new work and brings the idea of flying, gardens and garden sculptures forward.”
