Mara Vivas is a U.K. based independent dance artist, choreographer, dancer and a qualified pilates; gyrotonic and gyrokinesis teather. Her choreography is built from a led improvisation and process of enquiry.
I have been collaborating with Mara in Triptych since 2015. Triptych asks of the audience to be immersed in a discover and recalling of memories and how by experiecing something in the present might trigger a memory of a moment in the past.
Collaborating with Mara on Triptych has taken me on an exciting journey where the body is an expressive instrument and a sensory memory reservatoir; that can be triggered, accessed and precisely crafted to create an eloquent language.

'The work is intoxicating and immersive without the need for bangs or whistles. With her sensitivity to mood and attention to detail Vivas has a promising talent.' - Phillipa Newis
