Join Maree ReMalia | merrygogo for The Ubiquitous Mass of Us, an evening-length, escalating journey where nine performers from across artistic disciplines question the bounds of their identities.

The artists offer a post-performance discussion both nights. Sponsored by the Performing Arts Series, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation/Movement Matters Program, and the Dance Program.
Buy tickets: $20 Public/$15 Middlebury ID holders/$6 Middlebury students.

Movement Matters Residency, Middlebury College
Movement Matters is a 44-month institutional exploration of how human bodies literally and metaphorically shape our physical and political worlds. Through reciprocal arrangements between emerging artists in the field of dance and Middlebury College professors from across the curriculum, Movement Matters seeks to foster artistic creation and curricular development at the pedagogical nexus of embodied learning and scholarly interests with a special emphasis on increasing global understanding.

Awards, Residencies, and Other News
Movement Matters Residency at Middlebury College (2015)
Maree has been selected as a finalist for the Movement Matters Residency at Middlebury College (MC). “Movement Matters is a 44-month institutional exploration of how human bodies literally and metaphorically shape our physical and political worlds. Through reciprocal arrangements between emerging artists in the field of dance and Middlebury College professors from across the curriculum, Movement Matters seeks to foster artistic creation and curricular development at the pedagogical nexus of embodied learning and scholarly interests with a special emphasis on increasing global understanding.” She will spend the month of January 2015 at MC where she and two other finalists will meet with professors, students, and staff from the Department of Dance and across the curriculum to develop individual research proposals. Each finalist will be present her/his/their ideas at the end of the month. Panelists will then select one artist to return to MC in Fall 2015 to begin two years of collaborative creative research as the Movement Matters Resident Artist. Maree is thrilled to have the opportunity to connect with this program that aligns so fully with her own creative interests.

Multiple Bodies and a Theme of Tomorrow Project (2014-2016)
by Charli Brissey//Maeko Productions
I am excited to have been invited to participate in the talented Charil Brissey’s interdisciplinary project that includes a variety of artists from multiple locations! Multiple Bodies and a Theme of Tomorrow is a collaborative endeavor by multiple artists who will produce a series of interconnected works to be revealed in various cities and in various forms throughout the Autumn/Winter of 2015. Instead of one comprehensive and geographically specific premiere evening, we hope to extend these ideas and processes into multiple communities and through multiple iterations, maybe even happening at the same time. These collaborations will take on many forms and structures, including performances, sound installations, videos, photography, essays, and who knows what else. Cooking? We are interested in pursuing critically engaged ideas that develop from the purposefully vague prompt of ‘tomorrow.’  This could include interrogations of gender, habit, sexuality, socialization, transformative action, censorship, forgiveness, love, kinship, and all shades of queerness that resonate when considering these topics in relation to ‘tomorrow.’ Learn more and support these creative efforts on Charli’s Kickstarter page here.

Fresh Works Residency at The Alloy Studios (Fall 2013)
Maree ReMalia | merrygogo was selected to participate in the one-month Fresh Works Residency in October 2013 where she and her collaborators for the New Hazlett Theater’s CSA Performance Series will spend the intensive work period generating material for their premiere in June 2014.  The residency will result in an informal showing of the work-in-progress on November 1 at The Alloy Studios.

PearlArts Studios Artist-in-Residence (2012-2013)
In October 2012, Maree ReMalia | merrygogo began the three-month, PearlArts Artists-in-Residence Series to create a new choreographic work in collaboration with Korean movement artist, Hyunjung Lee.  The duo conducted the first two months of rehearsals via Skype and video exchange between the U.S. and South Korea and completed the work together in Pittsburgh for the premiere in February 2013!

New Certifications in the Gaga movement language and Ilan Lev Method During 2011-2012, Maree earned her certification in two innovative practices that originated in Israel.   She is now certified to teach Ohad Naharin’s Gaga movement language to both professional dancers and individuals without prior training in the field (Gaga Dancers and Gaga People); she is also a certified practitioner of the Ilan Lev Method, a Feldenkrais-based bodywork.

Kickstarter Goal Reached!
Thank you to everyone who supported the Kickstarter project, Going Gaga:  Connecting Through a Passion to Move, by posting the link or contributing to the page!  Maree is so grateful for all of your help and is so happy to be able to continue this adventure and follow through with her video project!  Stay tuned for updates!!
