In anticipation of the Risk/Reward Festival next Saturday (June 19 @ BodyVox!), we’re presenting daily profiles of the artists involved.
First up: Katherine Longstreth (performing in the 8pm showcase).
Before moving to Portland recently, Katherine lived and worked in New York City as a choreographer, performer, teacher and arts administrator. Her dances have been developed through the Fieldwork process and presented by Dance Theater Workshop, David Parker/The Bang Group, the Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Broome Corner Choreographic Platform Series, Context Theater, Fridays at Noon at the 92nd Street Y, Middlebury College, Performance Mix, the Festival of Independent Dance Artists in Toronto, and Piccolo Spoeleto in Charleston.
In March she performed her “Solos and Duets” at Conduit in a Portland debut, presenting work in a style “marked by clarity, musical acumen, gentleness, and now and then a hint of insouciance,” and demonstrating her “facility for evocative and sculptural movement.”
Needless to say, we are thrilled to be presenting her work this year at Risk/Reward.
And in fact, if you want a taste of Katherine’s work before Risk/Reward, you can catch some this weekend –- she is performing "High Seas, Wind Easing" alongside Keely McIntyre’s performances of "Subplot" and "Drift" with Noel Plemmons.
