Maria Hassabi is an artist and choreographer based in New York. Over the years she has developed a very specific choreographic practice built on the relationship between the body and the image, and defined by a sculptural physicality immersed in long time spans. Her work draws its strength from the tension between the human subject and the artistic object, transforming the dancer into both a performer and a physical entity. Maria Hassabi's creations are performed in theatres, museums, galleries and public spaces all over the world. In Rome she will be presenting the pre-première of her new piece entited Together.
