Maya Gingery is a dancemaker, musician, performing artist, writer, arts educator and nature lover. Currently LA-based, she has traveled widely and was an expat in Tokyo for many years, where she studied noh theatre and butoh. With a broad dance vocabulary, she dances to find and give meaning to the mysterious consequences of living. Her dances explore both mechanical and emotional levels of engagement with corporeality, and reflect her continuing exploration of the collaboration of body, mind, sound and the performative. Her current work explores concepts of community, extinction and the paradigm of the rhizome.
