Join Making Moves on Thursday, April 14th for an evening-length performance by Katarina Fitzpatrick. Katarina Fitzpatrick is a performing artist and choreographer working in Kansas City whose work expresses day-to-day thoughts, feelings, and movement impulses as uninhibited physical theater. In this new work she merges interests in anthropology and dance by using Tahitian folklore to explore a central question: do we feel that we create the sacred, or that the sacred ‘creates’ us? This new work is danced by Nora Burkitt, Christine Kraus, Carolyn Radke, Sonja Schulz, Virginia Smith, and Hope Wompler. The performance takes place in Charlotte Street Foundation’s Stern Theater at 6:30pm.
Masks required indoors. Proof of vaccination required upon entry. For more information about our COVID-19 Protocol, visit charlottestreet.org/plan-your-visit.
ABOUT KATARINA FITZPATRICK
Katarina is a performing artist and choreographer working in Kansas City whose work expresses day-to-day thoughts, feelings, and movement impulses as uninhibited physical theater. When creating, she imagines how someone would act/react absent social convention, consequences, or judgment. She thinks people are most fulfilled together, but most interesting when they think they are alone. Her performance practice strives to bridge that gap. The resulting movements can be familiar, relatable, idiosyncratic, bizarre, and/or uncomfortable.
Katarina graduated Magna Cum Laude from Mercyhurst University where she earned a B.A. in Dance (choreography concentration) and Archaeology/Anthropology (sociocultural anthropology concentration). As a student, she presented work at ACDFA and dance department mainstage concerts as a selected student choreographer. In Kansas City, she has directed dance and theatrical productions for the Kansas City Fringe Festival, choreographed a multimedia dance installation, and set both site-specific and concert works for KC Contemporary Dance. She has also contributed short pieces to local showcases including National Dance Week and Along the Line. She performs as a company member with KC Contemporary Dance and as an independent artist with creators and companies including Suzanne Ryan-Strati, Quixotic, and City in Motion. Katarina is committed to helping all bodies move with stability and grace, she teaches Pilates and dance as adaptable lifelong practices.
