“Kate Weare creates terrifically satisfying dance phrases.
And her fine company of four brings these steps to full, luscious life.”
– The New York Times
With both rawness and precision, Kate Weare maps a humanism that is contemporary and profoundly stirring. Hailed for its startling combination of formal choreographic values and visceral, emotional interpretation, her work has been seen at The Joyce Theater, Danspace Project, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, American Dance Festival, and at venues throughout the US.
For the Historic Asolo, Weare presents a program of open narrative spaces into which she invites the viewers to insert themselves and to see the work through the lens of personal experience. While in Drop Down she employs the power of tango to investigate the negotiations of erotic proximity, in Garden she elicits innocence by drawing upon primitive issues origination, collective identity, and safety in the face of the nature’s unpredictable forces.
The presentation of Garden is made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
