Choreographer in Residence at DanceItalia in Lucca, Italy. Maya will be teaching the core classes Creative Composition & Contemporary Fusion.
'My Own Nostalgia'
We will create something highly physical and dynamic and enter a realm that has not been discovered quite yet. We will research and play with warping the notion of nostalgia and taking some fragments of Italian culture, making it our own, and creating a new space that will be a combination between a cherished world of movement and intersecting it with the bizarre and wild. A mixture of improvisational tasks as well as set choreography- we will work workshop together as a team to create an electric and undiscovered territory.
World premiere July 12th 2019 at the Ladek Zdroj International Dance Festival in Poland.
This work delves into a warped memory, trying to make sense of a fragmented recollection. A twisted sisterly relationship burgeons into a surprise for them both. This highly physical work ventures into an unknown terrain. Two women will inhabit this surrealistic space and their perspectives on their lives and themselves will dramatically change.
