Katherine’s research revolves around the intersection of choreography, social practice, and somatic studies. With an attention to the interdisciplinary nature of the arts and sciences, Katherine hopes to blur the lines between traditional performance practice, community activism, and somatic wellness in her teaching and creative work. Alongside a rigorous investigation of choreographic form and structure, she explores collaborative, participant-driven models of dance making. Through her teaching she encourages an anatomically healthy approach to movement that is both mindful and deeply expressive. In communities within and beyond the academy, Katherine offers movement practice as a way to deepen self-awareness, invite creativity, and promote healthy social and environmental engagement.
