For more than two decades, Cathy Weis has been exploring innovative ways to partner video and technology with performance, creating imaginative, multidimensional worlds that skillfully play with the magic of time, space, illusion, and dance. Utilizing the arrangement of these diverse elements in performance, Weis’ work focuses on their poetic and linguistic possibilities.
A nonprofit, tax-exempt organization, Cathy Weis Projects was originally founded in 1974 under the name Roxanne Dance Foundation by choreographers Risa Jaroslow and Wendy Perron. Cathy Weis inherited the organization in 1997 and with the help of Company Manager Lynn Kable, began presenting work in New York, across the US, and abroad. Under Weis’ direction, Cathy Weis Projects continues to curate performances and sponsor the creation and touring of new work.
Additionally, Cathy Weis Projects serves the community by creating opportunities for artists to gather and exchange ideas at WeisAcres, a loft studio space at 537 Broadway in New York City. Sundays on Broadway, an ongoing event series at WeisAcres, includes film screenings, performances, and all manner of gatherings on Sunday evenings.
Theodore Berger, A.M. Homes, Mary-Beth Hughes, Emma Randall and Cathy Weis serve as current board members of Cathy Weis Projects.
