as a dionysian
Katherine’s first performance was a tap dance to the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse March at 6 years old, and she’s been chasing that high ever since. Her training encompasses ballet, tap, jazz, and contemporary dance, and she is a graduate of the University of Cape Town’s Theatre & Performance program, in which she specialized in Dance Performance. Raised in Dubai, Katherine has previously been part of immersive Shakespearean productions here such as Romeo and Juliet (2016) and Macbeth (2017). Now a dance teacher, she returned to Dubai’s theatre scene this year, appearing in The 39 Steps and the Global Palette Theatre Festival. She has also worked with numerous Cape Town-based dance and theatre artists, most recently starring in Not Falling (2022), a tragicomic physical theater production.
THE ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE
A lover of all things interdisciplinary and immersive, for Katherine, dancing in Antigone Retold has been the most exciting process. She loves the challenge of using movement and physicality to communicate what words cannot, and is so appreciative to Lauren for allowing the role of the Dionysians to be fully present. Working with Sashin and Sasha has been an absolute joy and she cannot wait for audiences to participate in the work that’s been created.
