Mazopalooza is a dance festival which has been quietly thriving in the dead of winter in a tiny town in Southwest Wisconsin since 2005! We’ve filled the streets, galleries, community spaces and storefronts of Mazomanie (WI) with spontaneous physical composition; enjoyed exquisite afternoons of focused movement; explored aerial, vocal, musical, silent, site-specific, physical, theatrical and contact-based improvisation, welcomed the curious via free classes and performances, and accrued rich memories of retreat and reconnection in a peaceful, beautiful rural setting. It is always a delight to witness new eyes opening to the lifelong practice and joyful play of improvisational movement, and to welcome back old friends for whom Mazopalooza has become a New Year’s tradition. Here are some photos from past ‘paloozas. Mazomanie is a lovely small town in Southwestern Wisconsin’s Driftless region, about 25 mi. west of Madison.
Due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to hold a virtual event on January 2, 2022! We will create a zoom and share the link widely, so that anyone who wishes to join us can do so! We hope we can return to hosting a lively, in-person ‘palooza in 2023!
