The Kate Weare Company is a New York-based contemporary dance group characterized by fierce physicality, thoughtfulness and authenticity. Weare’s dances explore a contemporary view of intimacy – both stark and tender – by drawing on our most basic urge to move and decode movement. The performance was followed by a standing ovation of all 433 audience members. The sold-out show was the result of the Miller and Ginger Miller funding, coupled with years of thoughtful curatorial practices. The audience expects high quality dance concerts, and they responded to Kate Weare with abundant applause. Kate Weare won first prize in NY’s The AWARD Show in 2007, received a Princess Grace Award for Choreography in 2009, and was awarded a 2010 Joyce Theater Foundation Mellon Fellowship. The company has been presented in New York by The Joyce Theater, New York City Center, Symphony Space, Joyce SoHo, Skirball Center, Dancemopolitan at Joe’s Pub, Dance Theater Workshop, Dance New Amsterdam and Danspace Project. Nationwide the company has been presented by Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, American Dance Festival, Bates Dance Festival, Florida Dance Association, The Ringling Museum of Art, ArtPower at UC San Diego, Dance Celebration Philadelphia, Keene State College, Alfred University, Spring to Dance St. Louis and ODC Theater.
The 2011-2012 Marlin and Ginger Miller Dance Residency Program began its season with The Kate Weare Company’s performance in The Miller Performing Arts Center and master dance class.
