Note from Catherine.
On the 1st of November I will be travelling to Sweden( so exciting!) where I have been invited by visual artist and performer Lisa Larsdotter Peterssonhttp://lisalarsdotterpetersson.se/news/index.html to attend the Varia Improvisation festival http://www.varia-impro.se. At this festival I will be presenting an improvisation session, attending numerous workshops and collaborating with musician Karin Johansson to present a 45 min performance duet.
After two weeks in Göteborg, I will then travel to Copenhagen to meet up with dancer/poet Rikke Jeppesen Rod for a 9 day residency and presentation at the Research Lab Station(Forsøgsstationen). Since meeting in Berlin 2014, Rikke and I have been engaged in a creative exchange and are thrilled to be able to get together again and explore our interest in the language of the body, in both dance and words.
For my upcoming performance Women of the North, I have invited Lisa, Karin and Rikke to be present through offerings of imagery, sound and spoken word. Mischa Baka will also be joining us, adding his film maker eye and technical assistance to weave our creative offerings together.
Women of the North is a celebration of my upcoming trip and I am excited to share a part of this with you.
