2014 Maida was in Argentina showing dance films in a university seminar. She became acquainted with a musician, dancer, filmmaker, Maximiliano Wille, and became involved with an art and technology event between two universities in Argentina.
Maxi invited Maida to do a moving interview with Arceli Marquez, dancer with A.Mov.Er Company (http://www.amover.me) in the Objeto-a Gallery (Lujan Oulton). Raw footage of the interview/dance is available at https://vimeo.com/554723257 (unedited, raw footage).
Ascenso: Arceli and Maida continued to improvise in silence in the gallery up the stairs and eventually on the second floor. The gallery was newly created by Lujan Oulton (http://www.objeto-a.com.ar). We were video taped by Maxi and other filmmakers/dancers at that time. Ascenso is a video short of the duet improvisation.
Maxi is a specialist in the Isadora computer program for creating dance. He is such a fine , talented, and beautiful person. I am so grateful to Maxi for his generosity and kindness to me.
