Dancemaker Julia Mayer developed strategies to activate awareness of one's self and surroundings in performance. These movement adventures shifted the focus from steps and stage design to the performer and audience's shared experience. In her new quartet, Mayer and collaborators glided from improvised movement "maps" to composed sequences that captured the character of each dancer. As much cartographer as choreographer, Mayer guided the dancers' journey, relishing the serious pursuit of play.
