Crunch Pop was created in 2013 in collaboration with Alexander Steinhaus and Grace Raso. A colorful workout satire, Crunch Pop dives into the world of food and body culture, with a healthy serving of absurdity. After circulating youtube for a few months, a producer from ABC Family's flop show, "DANCING FOOLS," reached out to Marill and invited the team to compete as a dance duet on the show. They told Marill and Steinhaus to send in numerous audition videos, that gave the "essence" of Crunch Pop, but could be reduced to a :45 second television appearance. The duet went on to compete on the show, winning the grand cash prize.

"Hero"  was originally conceived in 2008 and has been performed more than any other piece in Marill's repertory. Originally choroegraphed in direct response and relationship to Enrique Iglesia's "Hero," pop hit, this piece subverts the message of what and who a "hero" might be. How can we be our own heroes?

"Our Goodies" uses comedy as a vehicle to look at a more serious topic; the oversexualized yet simultaneously immature nature of youth in our society. We are all subject to this, and all subjects of this. This piece explores the relentless performance of this "sexy persona" and plays with juxtaposing performance with the supposed trauma of having to become this "persona" before feeling physically or emotionally ready.
