Mariah grew up listening to her mother play live chamber music inside a homesteader log cabin. This early relationship to live music informs Mariah’s dance making process today. Improvisation practice in dialogue with physical environment, choreographic structure and collaborations with artists of other disciplines continues to inform Mariah’s work. Maloney, a former Trisha Brown Dance Company member (1995-2002), creates work from the sensing body, accessing movement scores and choreography through improvisation. Mariah earned a BFA from Purchase College and a MFA from Hollins/ADF.
“…an eloquent correlation between personality and artistic imprint. “…the essence of her performance tonight, through an art in summarizing innocence, play, simplicity and, above all, beauty." Nestor Tirri, La Nacion
