I’m extremely excited to see my costumes in motion. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen my work live in motion!

Kate Corby & Dancers
Kate Corby & Dancers present four works in Catch, including three Chicago premieres. Corby began developing the centerpiece of the concert, Catch, last summer with collaborating company members Erin Kilmurray, Emily Miller, Anna Normann and Michelle Scurlock. The work, part of a larger interdisciplinary project exploring genocidal history and the nature of human violence, explores empathy and the concept of emotional contagion and features an original score by Brooklyn-and San Francisco-based composer Ryan Smith. Also part of Corby’s genocide project, Emily Miller’s solo Brute investigates the survivor and survival, particularly in terms of gender. The piece includes an original score by Milwaukee-based composer Tim Russell. The evening will also feature a new duet for Anna Normann and Michelle Scurlock and the company’s 2009 trio Go, which was performed as part of The A.W.A.R.D. Show! 2010: Chicago. All costumes for the show were designed by Chicago-based designer and dance artist Maggie Dianovsky.
Kate Corby & Dancers is a Chicago-and Madison, WI-based contemporary dance organization committed to producing innovative dance theater works that push the aesthetic boundaries of concert dance nationally and internationally. Their recent projects include performance in The A.W.A.R.D. Show! 2010: Chicago at the Dance Center of Columbia College, the Wave Rising Festival 2010 in Brooklyn and a performance at Dance Theater Workshop in New York as part of the World Dance Alliance’s Global Dance Event. Kate Corby is currently an assistant professor in the University of Wisconsin-Madison Dance Department. She has shown her work nationally in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, and Minneapolis and internationally in Canada, Mexico, Taiwan and Hungary, where she carried out choreographic research as a Fulbright Fellow in 2006. From 2007-09 Ms. Corby presented work in Chicago with the LIVE ANIMALS Performance Collective, which she co-founded. She received an MFA in Dance from the University of Illinois at Urbana in 2007 and has served on the faculties of Beloit College, the Dance Center of Columbia College and the Pedagogy Department of the Hungarian Dance Academy. Her work has been called ‘ingenious’ by the Chicago Reader and ‘haunting’ by the San Francisco Bay Guardian.
