Founded in 2010, Seattle based dance company Kate Wallich + The YC presents excerpts from their two most recent evening length productions at CPR before heading to Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out Festival. ‘Industrial Ballet’, commissioned and produced by Velocity Dance Center in 2016, has been described as “Black Swan meets Nine Inch Nails” by the Seattle Times and also noted as one of Wallich’s “best works yet” by City Arts Magazine. Wallich’s first large scale evening, “Splurge Land”, commissioned and produced by On the Boards in 2015, was described as a precarious mix of pop culture, post-post modern dance tropes, constrained emotions and club moves. The showing features company dancers Matt Drews (Saint Genet, tEETH), David Harvey (Alonzo King Lines), Thomas House (Abraham in Motion) and Lavinia Vago (Rubberbandance) with music composed by Seattle based producer Johnny Goss (Cock & Swan, La Luz, Lonesome Shack). Named one of Dance Magazine’s ’25 to Watch’ in 2015, Wallich has been described as “one of the most important and original artists to emerge from the city’s vibrant dance scene in the past few years” – Seattle Magazine
