Choreography by Maree ReMalia in collaboration with the performers
Performers: Fiona Lundie, Abigail Zbikowski
Text: Fiona Lundie, Abigail Zbikowski
Music: Arthur Lyman, Black Dice, Brian Eno, Champion, Funkadelic, Latex Empire
Special thank-you to Ann Rodiger and Movement Research for their support with performance materials

Fiona Lundie, Maree ReMalia, and Abigail Zbikowski are currently MFA candidates in Dance at The Ohio State University. Collectively, their training spans Africanist forms, synchronized swimming, contemporary movement practices and classical ballet. These modalities, alongside their independent interests in cognition, agency and spectatorship have informed the abstract expressions in this piece. ReMalia’s process centers around the negotiation of dancer agency and the “third thing,” or creative work that results from the limitations and shaping provided by a directorial eye. Movement is generated primarily through improvisational structures that are used to awaken the responsive body and uncover new possibilities. Revealing the dimensionality or range that exists within the individual performer and offering a space for experiencing one another is what drives her creative work.
