Presented by Kelly Strayhorn Theater
Thursday, July 19 | 8 pm
During this yearlong residency, Philadelphia-based dancer/choreographer Kate Watson-Wallace will use her fresh perspective in connecting with Pittsburgh dance community to take an in-depth look at how this community connects and shares information and ideas, with the goal of strengthening the entire dance community. Ms. Watson-Wallace will work with her mentor Miguel Gutierrez to develop a new work. This new work will expand her repertoire, enhance her appeal to presenters and give her the opportunity to travel and perform in many other venues.
As the presenter, Kelly Strayhorn Theater (KST) enjoys a burgeoning national reputation as a dance presenter that is extremely supportive of emerging artists. Ms. Watson-Wallace was a featured artist in the KST newMoves series in 2009, 2011, and 2012. As part of its mission the KST has made a commitment to support emerging dance companies and present new works. By bringing in a nationally known choreographer, we are fulfilling our vision while finding meaningful new ways to engage the local dance audiences.
