Kate Weare creates ingenious and imaginative dances that deal with contemporary perceptions of identity and relationship. Her work explores basic human urges to move and decode movement in the search for intimacy. Her wonderfully intricate, nuanced dance vocabulary is technically challenging yet highly sensuous, if not downright erotic.
An artist-on-the-rise, Kate premiered Bridge of Sighs in 2008 at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, and then went on to perform at New York City Center’s Fall for Dance Festival. Recent and upcoming commissions include works for CityDance Ensemble, Scottish Dance Theater, and a Princess Grace Foundation commission for Paradigm. Kate’s newest work, Lean-to, premiered this past summer at Danspace Project and then toured to the Bates Dance Festival.
