Marta Renzi has made more than 75 dances for her Project Company, as well as creating work for groups across the U.S. and abroad, including the Wagon Train Project in Nebraska, Balletteatro in Portugal – and Ben & Jerry’s dancing ice cream flavors.
Her site-specific pieces in locations such as the Guggenheim Museum, Union Station and the Staten Island Ferry, led naturally to her work in video and film. In 1981 YOU LITTLE WILD HEART, to music by Bruce Springsteen, was Marta’s first half-hour for television, followed by MOUNTAINVIEW, made in 1989 in collaboration with independent filmmaker John Sayles. Since 2005 she has self-produced six short video-dances, which have shown at film festivals nationally and internationally. As part of a continuing commitment to making dance accessible to a wide audience, she helped inaugurate the “Inside/Out” program of public performances at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, where she will be presenting work this summer on July 24th.
