Dawn Davis Loring (above) is best known at MIT as the communications coordinator for Computational and Systems Biology, but others may know her as the feet behind the dance-theater collective, Mosaic Dance Body. Founded in Austin, Texas in 1999, Mosaic Dance Body moved to Cambridge two years ago. The collective consists of artists from a variety of disciplines and produces a form of dance-theater described this past summer by the Somerville Art Council as "highly irreverent." The group is known for pieces like "The Mattel Trilogy," which tackles issues of conformity and body image with humor. Mosaic Dance Body, with guest choreographer Kelley Donovan, will perform at noon in Killian Hall today as part of the the Artist-Behind-the-Desk series. Photos / Holly Brunkow
