Barbara Mahler presents Precipice, creating an intricate tapestry with the environment, relying on the language of movement and music/sound alone.
Barbara Mahler is a 30-year active member of the New York City dance community as a choreographer, performer, body-worker and movement educator. Her choreography draws upon the intricate and infinite possibilities of the textures of time, space and the (her) body to create dances, which subtly reveal non-narrative events and stories. Her choreography; consistent with her teaching vision and work, explores the endless possibilities that the body can reveal – spare and articulate, compositional, evocative. She has traveled extensively as a guest artist around the globe. Mahler was an Artist in Residence with Movement Research for the 2003-04, and 2006 -08 seasons. Movement Research continues to provide a home base for the development of her artistic visions and products. Internationally, her choreographic work has received support from Meet the Composer, the Arts Council in Montreal, Canada; Danse Alliensen in Sweden and the Cultural Arts Ministry in Chile. Mahler was a recipient of a Sage Cowles Land Grant. Most recently she received a choreographic research grant from the International Dance Programme in Gothenburg, Sweden, a residency from the CAVE, Williamsburg, New York, and was a member of LEAP 2011-12, a Queens Arts Council Program supporting development of vision, artistic products and process. She was selected as an artist for E|MERGE, a program of Earthdance. She is the recipient of a BAX Arts and Artists Award in education for 2013 and currently is on the faculty of Movement Research and the State School for Dance and Theater Copenhagen, Denmark.
