   2021 Guggenheim fellow, Maureen Fleming (b. in Japan) is a choreographer/dance artist 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. A Fulbright Scholar to Ireland, S. Korea, Colombia and Latvia, her solo and group works have toured five continents. After extensive study in Japan with Kazuo Ohno, co-founder of butō, an avant-garde movement developed in post war Japan, Ms. Fleming went on to perform with his son Yoshito Ohno and to tour internationally with performance artist and choreographer Min Tanaka.
