Maria, Maria

Maria, Maria

Maria, Maria is a two-dancer, choreographic and sonic installation based on Walter de Maria’s 360° I Ching/ 64 Sculptures. Two dancers (the Marias) lay down the lines of de Maria’s sculpture, allowing the sculpture to be seen evolving incrementally though never completely. Highlighting de Maria’s work with trumpeter Don Cherry, the rods that compose the sculpture are turned into pitched instruments, which sound as they are dragged into position.
