Molly Gawler, Droplet Dance
Molly Gawler finds great joy in dancing. She studied ballet with Andrei Bossov in Pittsfield, Maine and furthered her dance training with contemporary and modern at SUNY Purchase in NY. She toured the world with Pilobolus Dance Theater and stared in the lead role of the 'dog-girl' in the show Shadowland. Curiosity of other movement led her to study circus at New England Center for Circus Arts where she learned Cyr Wheel, Aerial Arts and acrobatics. Molly came full circle, back home to Maine where she started Droplet Dance and choreographs solo and duet pieces often collaborating with her husband Lao Gillam and the Gawler Family Band.
Molly Gawler loves the connection that is found when two or more people dance together and how the communication that is possible without words starts to emerge like how a flock of birds know to turn together. She taps into the stories that are there when moving from a place of intuition and freedom. Molly delights in the joy of movement and is filled with gratitude for our amazing human body and its capability to go from the heart and with the breath.
Molly performed, with her husband Lao Gillam, at the Camden Opera House, and taught a contact imrov dance class as part of the 2015 Moving Explorations in Community (ME in Community) event.
