Maureen Fleming is renowned for her original vision of theatre as visual art. With the discipline of a classically-trained performer and the imagination of an iconoclast, Fleming connects cultures and art forms in an interdisciplinary celebration of femininity and the universal journey of the soul.
Maureen Fleming was born in Japan. After studying intensively under Kazuo Ohno, she continued to perform with her son Yoshito Ohno and embarked upon an international tour with artist and choreographer Min Tanaka. She continued her training in the USA when she won a scholarship to study with dance master Cecchetti Margaret Craske. In 1984 she was artist in residence at MaMa ETC in New York, and has since directed residency programmes at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, the Irish World Academy, NUI Galway, Brown University, RISD, the Seoul Institute of the Arts and Juilliard.
