MARSHMALLOW SEA - 2017

“a unique choreographic voice, creating work that is meditative, introspective, haunting, and... dream-like.”  - SeeDance


MARSHMALLOW SEA is the latest evening-length work from Stephanie Zaletel, examining water symbols, conservation, sustainability, and dream logic. The work begins where their last work, WATER STORIES, left off. It dives beyond linear stories and submits to a staggered, interrupted pace, and an overwhelming exposure of memories. Jonathan Snipes (of clipping.) performs a live sound score utilizing MaxMSP, field recordings, and a modular synth to offer a habitual sonic atmosphere. Original costumes by Amabelle Aguiluz and set design by prolific recycling artist Clare Graham.

MARSHMALLOW SEA premiered in Seattle, WA at Velocity Dance Center, and performed at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe, NM. We are thrilled to welcome the company back for their hometown premiere.
