June brings the entire Catalyst dance company to the eastern coast of the U.S.A.; we’re performing in New York City for the first time: Heat and Life at Dance Theater Workshop June 28- July 1. We’re cooperating with New York’s “Citizens Campaign for the Environment,” holding post show discussions and conversations on the subject of global warming. They’re a great organization that has really helped us get the word out about the show. Find out more info on them at

For a recent interview about this show see Mental Contagion.

To hear a recent podcast interview go to Great Dance.

And, of course, to buy tickets go to!!

While in New York, JG Everest - the composer and musician (who also performs with us in Heat and Life) will play a solo show at Tonic with Berlin based “electro-pop-princess” Barbara Morgenstern. It’s going to be a very cool show. Check out the details and listen to samples at:

This fall, Catalyst will perform Heat and Life on a farm in Nebraska and in public spaces in South Dakota and Iowa - all part of our goal of bringing Heat and Life to every state in the U.S.A. While on this massive 50-State-Tour we donate to - our way of trying to off-set the carbon emissions created for our flights and driving. Try it (or, of course, try driving less!).

New work is on the horizon as well, as we continue to work on “Windfarm.” Windfarm is our version of the future... complete with stilt walking. Look for it in 2007.

Capture! the dance series produced by Catalyst at the Bryant Lake Bowl in MInneapolis continues with some exciting fall programming including work by Julyen Hamilton. We’re always on the search for new dance films, you can send them (with a SASE if you want it returned) throughout the year (see the Capture! page of our website).

Thanks for your time. Come see some dancing.
