Here. is a dance riddled with constant change and absolute togetherness. In realms of warped athleticism, subtle ambiguity, and exactitude, performers David Rue and Anna Krupp navigate the “ever-shifting” like a rubix cube of labor.

Additional collaborators include sound composer (and brother) Dustin Mahler, textile artist Meg Callahan, and lighting designer Angela Kiser

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

ELLA MAHLER is a choreographer working at the intersections of experimental dance and visual performance. Her dance training began in college, after shifting from her background in drawing/design and path to study anthropology. She received a BFA in Performance & Choreography from Western Washington University, and has since performed for regional/national companies, including Bellingham Repertory Dance, Kuntz & Company, and Catherine Cabeen – Hyphen.

Approaching dance as critical inquiry, Ella explores the ways we perceive and experience in the world through examining the capacities of movement and juxtaposition. Living between everyday behavior and hyper physicality, Ella’s process is highly investigative, placing heavy value in research practices that lead to the work.

Ella’s choreography has been presented locally and nationally, with recent commissions from Relay Dance Collective, Bellingham Repertory Dance, and Seattle Art Museum. She is a 2018 Artist Trust Grantee, and has received SeattleDances’ DanceCrush Award and Velocity’s Audience Choice Award.


Here. is supported in part by – Artist Trust and the University of Washington Dance Department (bst residency)
