January 2007

Catalyst enjoyed a fine 2006 with performances at the Rogue Buddha Art Gallery in Minneapolis (thank you RBG,) at Dance Theater Workshop in New York City, on the banks of the Missouri River in South Dakota, on a farm in Nebraska, along 35W in Iowa and as part of KICK! in Montreal, Quebec.

"Capture!," the dance-film series Catalyst and Firetrunk produce at the Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis continued with 5 screenings of experimental dance films from around the world.

And, our work was featured in MentalContagion, the Star Tribune and in the November issue ofDance Magazine.

For our next adventure we go to Austin, Texas where we are bring presented by Dance Umbrella with shows at the soon to be demolished site of Gallery Lombardi(January 25-28 @ 8pm , 910 W. 3rd St., Austin TX, www.danceumbrella.com.)

Also in January - Dance Theater Workshop is screening our film Wingspan 5'2" in their video dance series Captured. The film screens the entire month whenever DTW is open.

If you're in Minneapolis, look for the second installment of the experimental dance series, Windfarm at the Rogue Buddha Art Gallery, with special guests in February, March and April.

And - if you're anywhere near Chicago, you're going to want to be at Links Hall every weekend in March as Tramp moves the work of 5 independent choreographing entities (Catalyst, Hijack, Karen Sherman, Morgan Thorson and Laurie Van Wieren)from Minneapolis to Chicago for a month filled with performances, workshops,receptions, post show discussions, informal gatherings of dance professionals and a symposium. Links will post the info soon at www.linkshall.org.

Here's to a happy and healthy 2007...
