*Megan Mazarick*, choreographer, teacher, performer, collaborator and
curator, creates work that is humorous, serious, theatrical, and personal,
often including a stop-motion physicality and a love of fantasy.  Of her
knock-out solo, “Boundaries,” and new work, she says. *“I look to smash the
cultural and political references against one another in places where
tension and entertainment collide.”*



Her choreography has been presented in Philadelphia at Live Arts Festival,
nEW Festival, Philadelphia Dance Projects, and PARD, and in New York City
at Movement Research at Judson Church, Triskelion Arts, and Dance New
Amsterdam.  She has toured throughout the USA as part of various dance
festivals and events, and internationally at Budapest’s Trafo Theatre,
Bulgaria’s BlackBox Theater and Dance Festival, Singapore Fringe Festival,
Zielony Jazdow Festival in Warsaw, and By Change Festival in Cairo.



Puerto Rican dance artist, *Marion Ramírez* has choreographed, performed,
and taught Contact Improvisation in numerous dance festivals, university
residencies and events across the US, Puerto Rico, South Korea, Cuba,
Germany, and the UK. For over 15 years, she has been immersed in the
practice of Kinetic Awareness and Body-Mind Centering.  She will perform
excerpts from her new work commissioned by Temple University Dance
Department this year, and created and performed in collaboration with
Jungwoong Kim. thINKing Dance writers have called their other intimate work
together, as *enchanting,* *transfixing;* “ *with **bewitching craft the
choreographer folds layers of personal life and a broader cultural setting
into an exhilarating performance.” *
