Artist Statement (Dance Maker) current as of May 7, 2023 @ 7:20 PM EST
Katherine Desimine makes experimental dance, with elements of song, voice, comedy, and performance art. She enjoys working collaboratively and creating space for her collaborators to create openly and expansively.
Katherine thinks of herself as a child scientist; exploring and playing are intrinsic parts of her making. She loves touch and partnering, and works with these elements often.
Katherine develops practices that prepare collaborators for performance. While preparation is valued, visible effort, mess ups, and honesty are also some of Katherine’s deep interests. She encourages her collaborators to find looseness, freedom, and joy, both in process and performance.
