TaMaMa Dance Company’s Large Work, Flow, premiered in June 2018.
Flow, a full length modern dance performance, is a creative collaboration of dance, music, and light. Featuring original choreography by Marissa Marquardson, Maggie Barch, and Maria Formolo, Flow is TaMaMa Dance Company’s second Large Work to premiere during the City of Marquette’s annual Art Week.
Featuring 13 dancers and comprised of three sections- Meditation, Dichotomy, and Beauty- this hour long performance invites you to find beauty in the unexpected and ponder the idea of connection.
For this piece, the choreographers have thought about the creative process, the shaping of space, and the movement of energy. Flow can be a physical state or a state of mind; it can be the connection between all things. Flow represents the movement of blood through the body, water on the planet, and ideas within the collective conscience.
The choreographers are working closely with local composers and musicians, Carrie Biolo, Dylan Trost, Nancy Zimmerman, and Mark Shevy to develop original music and soundscapes. Shevy is creating video projections that will be inegrated into the performance. Lighting design is by Northern Michigan University’s theatre professor, Vic Holliday.
TaMaMa Dance Company hopes to inspire and delight you with the continually changing landscape of dance, music, and imagery that is Flow.
