Katherine G. Moore
Katherine G. Moore is a movement and teaching artist whose work spans theaters, outdoor environments, galleries, and community spaces. Moore earned a BA from Hope College and an MFA from The Ohio State University. Active professionally as a performer and choreographer across the US for over a decade, some recent achievements include residencies at The Croft (MI), Keshet Center for the Arts (NM), and Akron Soul Train (OH). In addition to holding extensive teaching experience in studio and community settings, Moore was also a faculty member at the University of Southern Mississippi from 2019-2022. She currently lives in Columbus, OH, where she is an adjunct lecturer at The Ohio State University.
Her work centers on movement experience as a site of individual and collective imagining, well-being, and play and she believes in the power of movement as a transformational force for humans and their relationships to the world. Katherine Moore's exhibition reveals interior and exterior movement, transformation, and the unstable body of illness through time.
Katherine G. Moore presents a personal and physical transformation through chemotherapy. Moore, a dancer and choreographer, recently survived Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Shortly after finishing chemotherapy, she did an Instagram experiment: 100 days of expressive movement and writing. the space between landing and falling extends this work, exposing a period of immense transition, disorientation, and isolation as Moore reckoned with her new post-cancer body and life. Katherine G. Moore’s writings and images will be on display in the Burton D. Morgan Exhibition Space in the downtown Akron Soul Train Gallery, May 3 - June 10, 2023.
As part of her exhibition, Moore will also give an in-gallery performance featuring her choreography alongside her writings and performance images on Saturday, May 27 at 5:00 pm.
Exhibition: May 3 - June 10, 2023.
