VDA Artist Profile #68

Maia Sauer

Maia Sauer is a dancer and writer driven by a deep love of the body and its poetry. She is interested in the change-making capacity of storytelling through movement, words, and the untidy categories in between.

Through her artistic work, she seeks to infuse audiences with a renewed curiosity about the nature and practice of their own presence and relationships. She is fascinated by embodied exchanges—how we shape and are shaped by our environments, how we learn collectively, and how we construct networks of empathy and care.

Maia currently studies Dance and English & American Literatures at Middlebury College and was a Summer 2020 VDA Intern.
