with Catey Ott Dance Collective


Danceworks Get It Out There

Live Performance Saturday, July 30th at 8pm (Ticketed Performance)


Catey Ott Dance Collective will perform Pressures and Pulls can Alone Control the Whole at Danceworks Studio Theatre, 1661 N . Water St., Milwaukee.

Four superhumans are determined to move their way through today's challenges within a fantastical world.  Pressures of time, travel, and endless juggles tug as the swirling pulls to balance life with consciousness, conscientiousness, and high demands mount.  Loneliness and isolation then lead to a separation of self and society as the ongoing struggles to be in this together in a very fragmented world grows more difficult.  Evaluating loyalty, integrity and independence is necessary while managing expanding responsibilities and differing  belief systems.  4 solos describe these circumstances and then unite in a brief but impactful finale. Super Humans assemble to envision change and hope for the world.

Catey Ott Dance Collective will premier PANDEMIC SURVIVAL AND REVIVAL at the Avalon Atmospheric Theater   2473 S Kinnickinnic Ave   Milwaukee, WI 53207

In this dance film, memories, happenings, and mindful reflections are explored based on loss, love, ritual, boredom, and efforts for revival.  The the underlying tones and movement investigations include managing and eventually overcoming feelings of isolation, seperation, anxiety, petrification, being tethered, and menotany.  The hints of isolated and angst-ridden movements wind down into a zen mode.
