Maya Matilda Carroll
Eyes on Mars is an Odyssey, a quest for roots and imagined futures,
a space within which the singular binds with a temporary tribe,
exploring foreign landscapes, mapping personal and collective history.
An everlasting continuity meets human dreams and demands in the mirror of ‘knight’, ‘nature’, ‘architect’, ‘time traveler’ and ‘moon’.
These voices echo in the wilderness.
As the poetic undertone of one is spoken through the dance of many,
a dark string serenade to time, moulding the present moment in flesh.
Maya M. Carroll
Maya Matilda Carroll is a choreographer, dancer, teacher, based in Berlin, making independent work since 2004. Her work ranges
between set choreography and directed improvisation, evolving from an interplay between reality and fantasy, human conditions and relationships. Working in Germany and Europe she has been making dances and performing her work in state theaters, independent venues and alternative spaces. Her classes and workshops offer an exchange and research vehicle, exploring composition through improvisation and choreography. In 2011 Maya formed The Instrument; an artistic structure standing for her independent and collaborative work with her partner- composer Roy Carroll. Since 2012 she has been collaborating with director and choreographer Julyen Hamilton.
Roy Carroll is an Irish musician / composer making performances, recordings and compositions with electro-acoustic media. His work explores the physicality of music through provoking kinetic interactions between materials such as denuded loudspeakers, resonant objects, textured materials, feedback loops, the moving body, acoustic spaces, – instability as a creative prerogative even. His compositional work is similarly focused, but with some consideration for repeatability.
Roy has collaborated extensively with choreographer Maya M. Carroll since 2006. In 2011 they formed The Instrument, under which they have made seven pieces and toured extensively.
