Catherine Egan


Drawing upon history and technology, my work tells a human story framed by our time. Adaptation, struggle, evolution, cooperation, objectification – these themes recur in my work taking form in movement, sound, light, language, and sculpture.  

My works integrate contemporary dance, physical theater, video, sculpture, clown, and sound compositions. I am a long-time collaborator with Imago Theatre touring North America and creating video work for their acclaimed production, The Black Lizard. My work as a choreographer and dancer includes directing movement for stage adaptations of works by Ursula K. Le Guin directed by Jan Powell.

For the past two years, I have been working with dancer and performer Celine Bouly on an exploration of ice as a lens. We will present our work civilized - HAPPY HOUR in November 2018 at Performance Works NorthWest. My work has received support from the Oregon Arts Commission, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, and the Alembic Resident Artist Program.
