Fleming invents surreal movement poetry with the discipline of a classicist and the imagination of an iconoclast and explores through metaphorical images our never-ending search for what is universal about the journey of the soul. The video DVD's, created through a series of performances intended to embody Fleming's original choreography for stage, has been used with Fleming's live performance, depicting co-existing levels of reality. However, ‘Flower’ clearly stand alone as a motif of Fleming's unique visual art theater. Directed by Maureen Fleming and created through a creative exchange involving light designer Christopher Odo and videographer Jeff Bush this work, funded in part by the Rockefeller MAP Fund, has been seen in live performance and art installations spanning five continents.
