Maureen Fleming is renowned for her original form of visual theater realized through choreography for photography, video, and live performance. With the discipline of a classicist and the imagination of an iconoclast, Fleming connects cultures and art forms in an interdisciplinary celebration of femininity and the universality of the soul’s journey.
