Maria Hassabi is a New York-based director, choreographer and performance artist. Over the past ten years, she has developed a practice involved with the relation of the body to the image—defined by sculptural physicality and extended duration. Her works are presented in theaters, museums, galleries and public spaces. Throughout her career she’s had ongoing collaborations with artists from various disciplines. Hassabi is a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow and a recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, 2009 Grants to Artists Award. In 2013 she represented The Cyprus Republic as part of The Cyprus and Lithuanian Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale.
