mauriah kraker/ kitchendances has created projects on printing presses in Germany, in rivers of the Midwest, under bridges in Taiwan and in Bangkok’s zombie buildings. Mauriah's work is influenced by her career as an internationally ranked rhythmic gymnast. It is her goal to both utilize and enjoy the shape and structure this training provided, as well as to deconstruct and reassemble these particles of movement to create stories that resonate with breath and emotion. Accepted as an MFA Candidate at Taipei National University of the Arts, she studied there as well as with Assembly Dance Theatre in Taiwan. She has worked for Pilobolus Creative Services, appeared on tv for Conan O’Brien and the NFL, and now calls Wild Space Dance Company her home. Her solo work has been presented at the 92nd Street Y, Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn, WTF Gallery in Bangkok, and all over the Midwest.
