Maré Hieronimus is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary dance artist, performer and teacher whose performative work weaves together her interests in movement, light, sound, image, poetry, and perceptual awareness. Drawing from her explorations of embodiment, sensory perception, memory, and the interface between body and landscape, she creates abstract, minimalistic, Dance Art environments using the subtle, shifting field of the body as the point of origin.
The Body Archive is the umbrella for her teaching work and movement investigations, which is a synthesis of her studies in dance, improvisation, somatic based practices, yoga, and Ayurvedic and Vedic Philosophy.

The E|MERGE two-week intensive curates performative and visual artists, activists, and scholars in their experimentation with skill and resource sharing, bridging of known and unknown territories, and creation of new forms from the fields of movement, theater, visual art, music, installation, design and more. The interchange of ideas, artistic innovation, and the creation of new collaborative models and networks are all emphasized through the work. The residency culminates in a weekend of performances, panel discussions, writing, research and other modes of expression.
The CURRENT SESSIONS is a NYC-based dance organization and presenting series that represents the works of early and midcareer choreographers and movement-based artists. We seek to provide a place for contemporary dance to thrive, serving as an incubator for the furtherance of our choreographers’ artistic visions. Volume IV, Issue I. will feature 12 choreographers and 2 guest artists in 4 diverse programs, with a primary focus on works that have a dance theater/performance art influence and dance with media/technology-based collaborations.
I will be performing rise, an ongoing solo investigation inspired by the collision of city and nature, memory, past and present, and my continued explorations of embodiment. The work is accompanied by the droning chords and environmental recordings of electronic sound artist Derek Morton. I’ll be in performing Saturday @ 7:30pm, and Sunday @3pm, with the Talkback.

Lab Description: We are physical beings existing within a physical world, and yet too often as dancers it is too easy to over identify with that world, ignoring the invisible landscape within, and the forces that move through us and around us. Within this laboratory/workshop we will philosophically and experientially approach the body not as a physical object to be controlled, but rather as a field or instrument through which forces of sound, light, thought, memory, emotion, space and time are passing through. Using somatic practices, Yoga, and improvisational scoring as the gateway through which we access the invisible inner flow and terrain of the body, we will sense and feel, move and be moved, see and be seen, experiencing the continuous stream of consciousness through the physical field.
