Margaret Wiss: Choreographer
What Moves You?
“Curiosity in the unseen.”
Margaret Wiss is interested in the interaction between dance and science. As a choreographer and artist she wishes to reveal the invisible motion of physical forces in our world. Attracted to dynamic movement, which investigates the perception of dance as a scientific sport, she explores the interactions of dance and the environment – inside and outside the body. She has performed at multiple venues, notably The Kennedy Center and Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art, and has worked with Pilobolous Dance Theater as well as choreographers Jennifer Hart, Kinsun Chan, and Adele Myers. In 2016, she was selected to perform her choreography, Nothing happens until something moves., at the Biomorphic Dance Festival in NYC. She has choreographed for The Harvard Ballet Company and the DanceBARN Festival. Recently she participated in NACHMO Boston (National Choreography Month). Currently she is choreographing for PDX Contemporary Ballet Company and is collaborating with visual artist, Noël Hennelly for Norte Maar’s Production – CounterPointe5. In the fall she will be choreographing for the Five College Dance Department. A graduate of Mount Holyoke College, magna cum laude, she received a Bachelor in Arts in Dance Kinesiology with high honors from the dance department.
