Dances from Home

Presented by La MaMa E.T.C. in 2009, DANCES FROM HOME, is the first gallery installation/performance art piece by choreographer/performance artist Maureen Fleming. This unique performance and installation features a retrospective of photography, video and live performance spanning her 25 years as an artist in residence at La MaMa E.T.C. including photography by Lois Greenfield, Spencer Tunic, Philip Trager, Christopher Odo and Fleming. Renown for her lyrical sculptural performances, Fleming explores the (moment between) as she invites NYC artists (painters, photographers, sculptors, etc) to capture images as she performs live.

As she embarks on a new journey of capturing her own images from “home” through photography and video, Fleming invites viewers to reconsider the notion of home as the crossroads between one’s place of origin and the dimension beyond birth and death in an exploration of archetypal images from her original work. DANCES FROM HOME explodes the fertile moment between artists and audience involved in co-creation.
