Maree ReMalia is a freelance dance artist working as a choreographer, performer, and teacher. Born in South Korea, and raised in the Midwest, her work celebrates diversity by challenging conventional expectations of who dancers are, what they look like,
how they move, and how they train. Through her choreography and teaching, she draws from improvisational methods across disciplines and the Gaga movement language to
build community and make space for people to make new discoveries in
playful and inquisitive ways.
merrygogo is her platform for creating project-based performance works with communities of shifting collaborators. She takes a collaborative approach to directing dances that keep audiences on their toes with sudden shifts between nuanced gestures, over the top physicalities, meditative moments, and hilariously absurd exchanges that are awkward, honest, raw, and virtuosic.
She is currently based in Pittsburgh, PA and is adjunct faculty at Point Park University.
