"Timeless"
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

"TIGER, TIGER" (1993-94) is a dance theater piece about the passionate life and death of Camille's mother. Beverly Angelina was a wildwoman before her time whose story reveals the tragedy of trapped female energy. In the performance, Camille embodies her mother, dancing the movement of her dreams, her despair, and her demise. Not for the faint of heart, this tale of three generations of women, grandmother-mother-daughter, reveals how a legacy of pain can be transmuted through consciousness and art. The movement is performed to a sountrack of voice-over text mixed with music. Intense, dramatic, and moving. Emilie Conrad directed the 1994 version of TIGER, TIGER. See more photos.

"Creating and performing this work profoundly changed me, liberating my own passion and creativity in ways I could only suspect before. A bittersweet reality of live theater is that you pour your heart and soul into a performance and then it is over. It is therefore with deep gratitude and a tender heart that I release this video for you to see."

"Tiger, Tiger" - Available on DVD and VHS
The video of the 1994 "Tiger, Tiger" performance is available on DVD. 65 minutes. Each copy costs $20 plus $5 shipping and handling.

"LOSING IT: A Dance of Father, Dark Matter and Stars" (1996). No sooner than Camille had finished performing her mother piece than her father passed away and she realized she must create a work about the father-daughter relationship as part of the healing. This performance explores the mysteries of birth and death, placed within the metaphor of the birth and death of stars. In this autobiographical piece, Camille dances and speaks, alternately taking on the characters of herself and her father. See more photos.

TIGER, TIGER and LOSING IT constitute what Camille calls her "Standing Stones." The two pieces together created an initiatory passageway between the legacy of her past and the new territory beyond.

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. See more photos.
