Pace Nel Mio Cuore
Marie Brown has been involved with a few dance projects since showing her “Box Dance” at Nadine in 2019. She was honored to be able to perform “Box Dance” at the InHale Performance Series in Philadelphia where several artists present new works and get feedback from the audience. She was also able to present at the Fall Frolic Fundraiser for <Fidget> in November 2019. More recently, she was honored to be a part of The Philadelphia Matter 1972 / 2020 virtual project. Choreographer David Gordon and video artist Jorge Cousineau along with several Philadelphia artists all collaborated to create a dance film. The dancers used archival works from 1972 to create a 2020 version of the movement material. It was definitely interesting to try and figure out ways to effectively film and accurately perform the movement learned from video. She was privileged to participate in this project especially during such a rough time for the arts. Marie is continuing to teach dance at Temple University as an adjunct professor and has started teaching virtual Pilates since March. Zoom has been her new way of interacting with students and artists.
