Kate Weare Company

Kate Weare Company is a New York-based contemporary dance company founded in 2005. Known for its startling combination of formal choreographic values and visceral, emotional interpretation, the company is led by artistic director Kate Weare, who cultivates the potent individuality of each of her dancers to unleash a chemistry on stage that is both heartfelt and seductive. Weare’s work explores contemporary views of intimacy, both tender and stark, by drawing on our most basic urges to move and decode movement. The company made its name after winning the Joyce Theater Foundation’s the AWARD Show in 2007 and has since been presented by the Joyce, New York City Center’s Fall for Dance, Symphony Space, Joyce SoHo, Skirball Center, DancemOpolitan at Joe’s Pub, Dance Theater Workshop, Dance New Amsterdam, and Danspace Project. Nationally, the company has been presented by Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, American Dance Festival, Bates Dance Festival, ArtPower at UC San Diego, Dance Celebration Philadelphia, and ODC Theater, among others. Kate Weare Company has received support through artistic residencies awarded by the Joyce Theater Foundation and Joyce SoHo Residency, Dance New Amsterdam’s A.I.R. Program, and ODC Theater. Kate Weare Company is the first company in residence at the BAM Fisher.
