    Mariah Maloney, Artistic Director of Mariah Maloney Dance, originally from Homer, Alaska, is a New York based dance artist presenting choreography nationally and internationally.  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.   A former Trisha Brown Dance Company soloist and ensemble dancer (1995-2002), Mariah creates work from the sensing body, accessing movement scores and choreography through improvisation. Founded in 2003, Mariah Maloney Dance has performed original work created by Mariah in New York as well as throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and South America. In July, Maloney premiered a new work with composer Loren Loiacono’s newly commissioned work for the Albany Symphony inspired by the Bicentennial of the Erie Canal, Water Music New York was a one-of-a-kind musical journey from Albany to Lockport, NY.  The company has toured to Santiago, Chile and engaged in the International Artist Residency at Dance Ireland in Dublin, Ireland as well as presented an evening of work at Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out.  The company has presented work and been produced in New York venues La MaMa etc, The Kitchen, Judson Church, Dixon Place, Danspace Project, APAP and the Brooklyn Museum of Art.  Mariah earned a BFA from Purchase College and a MFA from Hollins/ADF.
