Kat Brown
b. 1990

Kat Brown is a multidisciplinary artist and writer. Kat's work integrates dance, performance and visual art. A concentrated but interdisciplinary focus on duration, dematerialization and subjectivity is consistently present within her work. Informed by somatic practices Kat's work approaches movement as a means to understand and embody symbolic language. Through durational performance Kat’s work takes up the relationship between time and the body as a means of artistic inquiry.

Kat Brown has performed in New York City at Movement Research, CAVE, Chez Bushwick and Gallatin Galleries. Her evening length work Native Tongue premiered at CounterPulse in San Francisco, CA. In addition she has completed site-specific work in the Southern Utah Desert. Her written work was presented in Hamburg, Germany at the Performance Studies International Conference. Kat Brown was a 2015-16 LEIMAY Fellow at CAVE and has completed residencies at Performing Arts Forum in St. Erme, France and Berlin, Germany.
