Monday Ballet Monday: Kate Weare
Kate Weare interviewed in the August issue of Dance Magazine:
You have a distinctive style that's very taut and physical. How have you developed that style?
At the moment, I'm very interested in ideas that have a tinge of violence in them. I'm drawn to percussive movement, like rhythmic movements of ethnic forms like Balinese and king fu. I like tango because of the dynamism under the surface.
That tinge of violence often emerges in kind of an erotic situation. Tell me about that.
I'm fascinated by what happens when women feel more empowered, how the game shifts when women are not assumed to be the weaker players.
