The choreographer duo Keone and Mari Madrid explore new territory in dance again and again. The couple with a well-deserved reputation as dance pioneers began a decade ago (long before dance videos were available) with their breathtaking YouTube clips and now with their impressive multidisciplinary work. An open minded look at where their interests might lead has enabled them to seize opportunities inside and outside the dance world.
The dancers Keone & Mari
Keone & Mari Madrid are world-renowned dancers, award-winning choreographers, directors, teachers around the world and above all husband, wife and parents. Their unique ability to tell stories through a detailed style of “West Coast Urban Dance” has established itself beyond the dance world in theater, music, film and online platforms. Their approach to using all human movements alongside their inventive dance vocabulary has enabled their work to connect with many.
“Individually starting out on our own paths and eventually finding each other through dance, we are living out a dream we couldn’t have imagined. It started with 240p quality dance videos on Youtube which led to incredible opportunities …”
Among the remarkable works are the leading roles and choreography for Justin Bieber’s music video “Love Yourself”, Mark Ronson, Flying Lotus & Kendrick Lamar, New York Times Square Billboard, known from So You Think You Can Dance, the Ellen Show, SKY, a 3D musical, Dancing with the Stars, nominations for best choreography at MTV Video Music Awards and UK Video Music Awards, collaboration with the most famous Kpop artists, viral videos, several champions at major dance competitions (World Of Dance 2017) and more.
Their Youtube videos have seen over 2 million visitors. Recently Keone & Mari published “RUTH”, the first dance book ever. A multimedia experience of dance, writing, illustration, music and video that debuted in the top 8 on iBooks and Google Play. They have also co-created, staged and choreographed their first full theater dance show “Beyond Babel”. After the successful regional run in San Diego, Beyond Babel will make its off-Broadway New York debut in 2020.
“While we continue to pursue multiple projects our continuous goal is to share impactful art through storytelling and movement that can inspire others to do the same.”
Theater Dance Performance BEYOND BABEL
BEYOND BABEL is a new theatrical dance show created by Keone & Mari and Hideaway Circus that made its six-month debut in San Diego, California, in 2019. The production is inspired by the classic story of Romeo & Juliet and contemporary social stories from around the world. BEYOND BABEL was named by the San Diego Union Tribune as one of the best “Things We Loved in the San Diego Arts Scene in 2018” and described by Broadway World as “a truly spectacular theatrical experience not to be missed”.
BEYOND BABEL is about the division of families, friends and a community of people and authorities who decide to build a wall between them. We follow two divinely united lovers who reconcile themselves with the rising tensions of a halved population. The show is accompanied by a contemporary soundtrack and consists of twelve elite dancers. BEYOND BABEL also features great backdrops, art installations and selected props by artist London Kaye.
