Nude Descending Stairs 1997
Maureen Fleming’s ‘Nude Descending Stairs 1997’ with sound design by Brett Jarvis was created during a live performance at Orensanz Foundation in NYC during a series of ‘Encounters’ involving composer Philip Glass and David Henry Hwang during the development of Fleming’s evening length work ‘After Eros’ funded by the Rockefeller MAP Fund and New York Foundation for the Arts.
“Maureen Fleming did amazing things in After Eros…she seemed to transcend the material world and enter a realm of pure spirit…
wondrous choreographic metamorphosis.” The New York Times
