Show Summary Details


Marylee Hardenbergh serves as the Center for Global Environmental Education's resident artist at St. Paul, Minnesota's Hamline University, as well as Global Site Performance's artistic director. Hardenbergh has created various performances on unusual sites for more than 20 years. In efforts to transform the environmental experience of the audience, Hardenbergh includes performers such as sewage workers, cherry picker drivers, and rollerbladers. For Hardenbergh, a dance becomes site-specific when the costumes, movement vocabulary, and the music are formulated and appropriated specifically for the site. For her, site-specific performances call for performers and dancers from the site. Also, most of her performances include audience participation to establish an interactive bond between the site and the members of the audience.
