Katherine Longstreth has been choreographing for twenty five years. Her work is subtly narrative--weaving pedestrian movement with fully articulated physicality to create startling and poignant imagery. In Arizona, she co-founded, choreographed, and performed for the Estrus Works performance group, which produced 4 full-length concerts at the Unlikely Theater between 1992-94. In NYC, her choreography was supported by an Independent Artist Challenge Program grant and was presented by Dance Theater Workshop, David Parker/The Bang Group, the Brooklyn Arts Exchange, the Harkness Center for Dance at the 92nd St. Y, Performance Mix, Broome Corner, Context, and Dixon Place, among others. She curated and produced Girl Wonder for Movement Research and was selected to participate in Bessie Award-winning group, Red Dive’s sensory installation project in association with the Foundry Theater. Her work has been shown in Charleston by Piccolo Spoeleto, and in Toronto by the Fringe Festival of Independent Dance Artists. From 1996-2000 Katherine served as Executive Director for The Field, a NYC-based service organization dedicated to performing artists. She has served on numerous artist panels and committees as well as the boards of both The Field and the Brooklyn Arts Exchange.

In Oregon, Longstreth’s work has been presented by Conduit and Studio 2 and featured in Ten Tiny Dances at PICA’s TBA Festival, Hand2Mouth’s Risk Reward Festival, The One Festival at the Headwaters Theater, and in San Francisco by CounterPulse. Longstreth co-choreographed with Gregg Bielemeier musical versions of the Wizard of Oz and A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Arbor School for Arts and Sciences, and has been a choreographic mentor at daVinci Middle School for the Arts. Currently she serves on the boards of Troika Ranch and the N.E.W. Artist Residency Program at Studio 2.
