About Maguy Marin

Star choreographer Maguy Marin burst onto the 1970s French new wave dance scene. A contemporary of Pina Bausch, Marin’s work stood out for its theatrical aesthetic, political commentary, and audacious integration of traditional dance with unexpected narrative, musical and physical elements.
In 1981, Marin’s work “May B,” inspired by the work of modernist playwright Samuel Beckett, upset the dance world; it rejected traditional ideals of beauty and embraced a fiercely political perspective. Since then, Marin’s work has grown in popularity; she has won numerous awards and her pieces are regularly presented at all major dance festivals, from the Rio Favellas (Lilia Rodrigues’s company) to the Joyce Theater (NY). The documentary Maguy Marin: Time to Act offers remarkable footage of live performances,  as well as first person interviews with a choreographer whose work is daring, moving and continues to defy convention.

In 2016, the Venice Biennale awarded Maguy Marin with  The Golden Lion  for Lifetime Achievement recipient and in 2003, she received the Samuel H. Scripps American Dance Festival Award in modern dance.
