Corinne Maier | Studio Residency 2016

India | Performance Art

January - April 2016 — Performance Art

Residency location: Bangalore
Partner organisation: 1 Shanthiroad, Bangalore

Swiss director Corinne Maier studied Cultural Sciences and Aesthetic Practice at the University of Hildesheim in Germany until 2009. Since then she has remained committed to creating her own performances in a range of contexts, including a series of solos on the philosophy she has devised. Corinne Maier is part of the theatre collective ‘magic garden’. Her work as a director is mainly settled in the field of Documentary Theatre. She likes bringing the world ‘outside’ the theatre, on stage. ‘Past Is Present’ and ‘Like A Prayer’ are two of her latest projects.

During her residency in India Corinne presented ‘Past is Present’ to audiences in Bangalore, Mumbai and Pondicherry. The magic of documentary theatre lies precisely in its potential to utter global narratives through individual stories. The performance is the result of Corinne Maier’s collaboration with Shaheen Dill-Riaz, a Germany-based documentary film artist of Bangladeshi origin.
