A Performance by Camille Maurine
(Performed September 2010. Please make sure your sound is up ~ the sequence of words is important!)
Timeless (Camille Maurine, 2007) ~ In September and December, Camille gave a performance as part of the Somatic Movement Arts Festival in Santa Monica, on the same program as Continuum founder Emilie Conrad. Camille's piece - "Timeless" - is inspired by three personal experiences of love beyond time. She weaves a moving theater of story and silence, movement and stillness. Camille's performances, largely improvised, are renown for evoking the subtle world of the soul with powerful embodied expression.
Performing "Timeless" reminded me how much I love the process of performing – the opportunity to dwell
in the shimmering body of the stories I share, and the communion with the audience, heart to heart. - Camille Maurine, December 2007
A DVD is also available for minimum cost and shipping. Contact Camille if you are interested in having a copy.
PLEXUS: Life in L.A. (1997-98). For this performance, Camille interviewed over 100 people around Los Angeles, from LAX to downtown, from all walks of life and cultural background about their experience of living in the city, their hopes and dreams, disappointments, and visions of the future. She recorded their responses and created a soundtrack, mixing snippets of their voices (with a wide array of international accents) with music and sound effects, to which she danced and spoke in the performances. This was Camille's pre-millennial tribute to the diversity, adaptability, and transformational possibilities of Los Angeles as an energy center on the body of Planet Earth.
"IN THE MEANTIME" (1998). Wild and crazy improvisations in movement, sounding and speech. Camille interviews the audience about their experience in LA, and then takes off in response.
"DAKINI DREAM" (Present). Camille also gives a one-woman performance in conjunction with workshops and other events related to the book, MEDITATION SECRETS FOR WOMEN.
