North Fourth is bringing back dancer, choreographer and videographer Cathy Weis to New Mexico to create a new multi-media piece with Buen Viaje Dance Company. Known for her signature mix of live performance, video and humor, Cathy Weis is fondly remembered for her performances and workshop at North Fourth in Fall 2006. The new piece, An Evening Back at North Fourth, features Weis and ensemble performers and members of Buen Viaje Dance Company in two performances on Friday and Saturday, March 7-8, at 8pm in N4th Theater.

A Guggenheim Fellow and Bessie Award-winner, Cathy Weis is recognized as an early innovator in incorporating technology to create dance. She majored in dance at Bennington College and after moving to New York in 1983, began working as a videographer for dance and performance artists, capturing rare early performances of artists such as Anne Bogart, Ping Chong, Meredith Monk, Mark Morris, Stephen Petronio and many others. Her library consists of hundreds of hours of footage, documenting the spirit on the streets and stages of New York City over a 20-year period.

During this time Cathy Weis began experimenting with innovative and often humorous fusions between live bodies on stage and different forms of technology. She has a deep understanding of how technology can be used in conjunction with simple bodily gestures to create a meaningful message and show us the power of choices available within the human relationship to the technology we develop.

“The object is that both dancers and audiences understand the multiple options available,” Weis explains. “There is no tech trick -- the imagination rather than technology takes center stage.”

The annual exhibit focuses on work by artists with disabilities and is open to a wide range of media. Rusty’s paintings are unusual. “I use my wheelchair as my pencil and paintbrush by rolling over my art pieces and adding materials in layers,” he explains in his artist statement. “It is like dancing.”
