Maya Wallis is interested in the exploration of the bodily experience of excitement: its essence, intimacy and effects on the body.  Through scores, text, performance, and sound, she focuses on analysing the internal adrenaline rush experienced found in small acts such as listening to music, dressing, and dancing in her room. Maya constantly questions how to allow an audience to witness these private but explosive moments contained within her body.
