Katherine Ferrier is a dance artist/educator, poet and visual artist who has been improvising and making dances since the late ‘80s. She earned her BA in Dance and Women’s Studies from Middlebury College, and MFA in Dance and Performance from Sarah Lawrence College. A co-founder of The Architects, an improvisational quartet with a collaborative performance history spanning nearly 20 years, she is also the founder and Artistic Director of Immediate Theatre, an ensemble of movers, musicians, video and visual artists, lighting and set designers, collaborating together to create spontaneous dance theater works.  An improviser at heart, Katherine delights in composing in the moment, be it with fabric, found objects, words or bodies in motion, and her various forms of creative research continue to inform and provoke each other, becoming quantum partners in a life-long practice of paying attention. As a dance artist, she has performed and taught throughout the United States and Europe, and her one of a kind improvisational art quilts hang in over twenty private collections.

You can read more about her work on her website, here.   Occasional observations on teaching, dance-making and collaboration show up on Reports from the Field, and poetry lives at the ellipses fields.
