Renter Spotlight: Kat Brown Movement Arts

A person on their hands and knees as another puts rocks on their back, in a red dress.

On a normal day, Gibney’s 23 studios are a bustling artistic nexus. We love walking down the hallway and seeing different artists, different projects, and different communities making each space their own. We are missing that feeling, and want to find a way to share it with you.

We’ve asked a group of renters whose rehearsals, showings, workshops, and events have been postponed or suspended to give us a glimpse of what they’re working on, share the ways we can support them right now, and tell us what the first thing they’ll do is once they’re back in the studio.

The first thing we’ll do? Close our eyes, feel the floor supporting us, and take a deep breath of gratitude.

“Cry with relief, and keep going.”

Who are you?
I work primarily with duration and somatic dance. Time and temporality are methodological tools that I utilize in my practice to investigate larger questions around intuition, impulse, improvisation and the logic of the body. Before the closures I had been working on a piece entitled Archive of Listening which was a series of simultaneous duets. I was working with Annabel Paran, Paige Barnett, Emma Cohen, Natasha Fraiter, Sarah Naiagle and Taylor Marie on this project. 

How can we support you right now?

What is the first thing you will do when you are back in the studio?
Cry with relief, and keep going.
