Maureen Fleming Company presents "Earth Goddesses"
Maureen Fleming Company
Choreographer/performer Maureen Fleming will present the premiere of EARTH GODDESSES, a digital streaming program that pairs two of Fleming's critically acclaimed recent pieces, "Axis Mundi" and "Effulgent Wings". EARTH GODDESSES is available to stream December 28, 2020 - January 28, 2021. Tickets are $8 per device, available at www.MaureenFleming.com.
Fleming's critically acclaimed "Axis Mundi" explores, through metaphorical images, our search for transcendence. This poignant study of the female body and its relationship to the universal soul's journey has been performed in venues in the ruins of a 1000-year old church for Italy’s Palermo di Scena International Festival, an old Japanese firehouse for Tokyo's Butō Festival, and Boston's aptly named Emerson Majestic Theater, where it was named one of The Boston Globe's Top 10 Dance Performances of the Year. It is set to music by Somei Satoh and Philip Glass.
"Effulgent Wings" represents Fleming's choreographic research into the archetypal symbol of the "Swan" shape-shifting into the human form found throughout folklore, legends, and Irish Aisling (vision) poetry. It features music by acclaimed Irish composer/violinist Colm Mac Con Iomaire, a founding member of the internationally acclaimed Irish band The Frames.
