MARIA HASSABI - STAGED? (2016) - UNDRESSED
03 FEB 2019
STAGED? (2016) is a choreography that oscillates between dance and sculpture, subject and object, live body and still image. The audience surrounds four performers entangled in a tense and colorful pile. The performers form a sculptural mass that changes through the accumulation of their movements, creating a surreal theatrical intensity. At the Serralves Museum the "undressed” iteration is presented – an adaptation for public spaces represented solely by its performers and removed from all its theatrical elements.
Maria Hassabi is an artist and choreographer. Her performances and installations are presented worldwide in theaters, museums, galleries, and public spaces. Hassabi received the 2016 New York Dance and Performance "Bessie” Award for PLASTIC; the 2015 Herb Alpert Award; 2012 President’s Award for Performing Arts from Lower Manhattan Cultural Council; 2011 Guggenheim Fellowship; 2009 Grants to Artists Award from Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
