As a part of Dance in the Annex Marlee has had the opportunity to perform at the GRAM, UICA, ArtPrize, Richard App Gallery and RAD dance festival, as well as help organize, teach, and promote classes and create new work for shows at Wealthy Theatre. Marlee is a board member at the Division Avenue Arts Collective where she books shows, teaches the occasional yoga class, and curates the series ART GEOGRAPHIC with her partner/collaborator John Hanson. Marlee’s work heavily emphasizes improvisation as a tool for performance, as it creates a platform for chance and risk taking, as well as honors the moment where we make choices and the bravery it takes to push through them. Marlee also makes zines, cards, flyers, scarves, and other kitschy wares under the name BRAVE HABITS.
Marlee is a Shared Space artist-in-residence from July 24th through August 2nd, and will lecture on her work July 29th at 7pm. During her stay she is creating zines and journals and improvising to the rhythm of everyday life in Pentwater.
