Maré Hieronimus is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary dance artist, performer and teacher whose work weaves together her interests in movement, light, sound, the visual language, and perceptual awareness. Drawing from her interests in memory, mythology, sensory perception, embodiment, and the interface between body and landscape, she creates ritually based performance using the shifting field of the body as the point of origin.

The Body Archive is the umbrella for her teaching work and movement investigations, which is a synthesis of her studies in dance, improvisation, somatic based practices, yoga, Ayurvedic and Vedic Philosophy, and shamanism. Committed to the practice of movement as a healing art form, through her classes she facilitates an experience of the subtler aspects of yoga, the innate wisdom of the dancing body, and our interconnectedness to the cosmos.

As an interdisciplinary artist, she works across media, including in video, photography, voice, as well as sound scoring, all towards the creation of her body-based performative work. This approach is rooted in the cultivation of deep sensing, inner listening, and the exploration of the interrelationship of body and nature. This is an exploration of consciousness made visible through the dancing form. She is also specifically interested in the use of imbued object, ritual, and liminal space as a passageway to transform the consciousness of both performer and viewer. Through the creation of moving visual environments in both traditional and nontraditional performance locations, dance films, photography, as well as her teaching work, her interest is in facilitating the opportunity for the generation of alternate grounds of reality and ways of being, seeing, and experiencing. This is inclusive of heightened states of awareness, understanding, and empathy, both towards each other, and to our natural earth environment.
