Hi Mary is a choreographic project that focuses on the notion of waiting as central element for organizing a performative event. Hi Mary is a site-specific work that explores the figures of messenger, medium, preacher, host, mermaid to produce the space in which the time is mediated through the anticipation ( and preparation) of the future, and in which the audience's positioning and activity is planned into a preconceived choreography of the event. As a heterogeneous practice Hi Mary consists of solo and group dancing, sports, baking,eating, meditation, hypnosis, writing,fasting, small rituals and popcultural trash mix with christian symbolism. Hi Mary is always a singular unique event that is meant to bring people togeher under the pretext of waiting for Mary.
The practice has been developing since 2013, and has travelled so far to places such as Judson Church ( New York) Ada Studios, Dock 11. Ballhaus Ost, Uferstudios ( Berlin), Teatr Studio ( Warsaw), Museum of Modern Art ( Lodz), Dansehallerne (Copenhagen), Norberg Festival ( Norberg), or Het Veem ( Amsterdam).
