2007 – (3:15 min) a narrated video short by Maida about life and her dances around the issues “live art,” excerpts of 6 site-specific projects. This simple statement was created to show her restlessness (thus her nomadic nature) and her pleasure in working in both theatrical and non-theatrical spaces. Withers has always been interested in how one tells a meaningful story blending voice/image/aesthetics. This short is an example of low technology applied to creating commentary about an artistic point of view made to share with her students in Trends in Performance Art, a course Withers developed and taught at GWU for over 20 years.
