Katrina Brown is a UK/NL-based choreographer working across movement, drawing and page (material and digital), engaged in a hybrid choreographic practice that produces different kinds of outcomes including public performance, drawing, still & moving image, writing and graphic scores. She re-configures drawing residues, scores and recordings of drawing processes to produce documents as choreographic extensions of live work.
In residencies 2017 at CAST, Helston Cornwall and Šilainia-Project Lithuania she explored body-place in relation to (dis)-orientation and rhythmic activations, producing two 'folded-book' documents, ASSEMBLED: tilt/rhythm/dust and STILLED: tilt/linger/concrete.. Her new project 'tilt-rhythm-back: dances & drawings' is currently (July 2019) in residency at Dance 4 iC4C [international Centre for Choreography] Nottingham UK and is exploring the 'dorsal' as an expansive and connecting force between bodies,.
She has worked in collaboration with Rosanna Irvine including the performance installation and artist book what remains and is to come and the video installation surface/sphere commissioned by Siobhan Davies Dance/Independent Dance for the What Remains Festival, Anatomy of an Artist 2016.
