Kat Brown is a Dance Artist and Writer. Kat's work integrates Performance Studies, Dance Studies, Visual Art and Psychoanalysis. A concentrated but interdisciplinary focus on duration, dematerialization and subjectivity is consistently present within her work.

Through long duration performance her work takes up the relationship between time and the body as a means of artistic inquiry. Kat Brown is based in New York, NY and San Francisco, CA.
