Kathy Westwater, 2017 recipient of the Solange MacArthur Award for New Choreography, has choreographically pursued experimental dance forms since 1996. Her work, described in The Brooklyn Rail as “at the limits of the human,” responds to the societal landscape in which it manifests by reimagining the body's movement potential. It has been presented by Brooklyn Studios for Dance, Dance Theater Workshop, Danspace Project, 92nd Street Y, Joyce SoHo, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Franklin Furnace, Dixon Place, and Performance Space 122, among many others. She has received commissions from Lumberyard, Temple University, Dance Theater Workshop, and Danspace Project. And in 2018 she was awarded an inaugural artist residency at Petronio Residency Center. Her latest work premieres in February in Lumberyard in the City Series at NYLA.
