Cat + Fish Dances is a community of artists who strive to cultivate a space for artistic individuality and a collection of voices as a guide for collaboration and artistic research. In connecting to others and the world we seek to understand through movement, major themes of our work investigate the body in space, developing physical relationships, and social ideas of seeing and being seen.
About Cat + Fish Dances
Cat + Fish Dances is a project-based dance company located in Salt Lake City. Founded in 2015 under the direction of Cat Kamrath, Cat + Fish Dances has performed their works at the University of Utah, Utah Museum of Fine Arts, the Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival, the Rocky Mountain Choreography Festival, Red Rock Dance Festival, and Dance in the Desert Festival. Cat + Fish Dances is a RAW Artist for Salt Lake City. The company also produces their own concert every summer.
During the creative process of Swims Our Blood, the dancers were on a break in rehearsal and decided to give each other “fish names.” These names represented a personality trait of theirs, a memorable moment that dancer had, etc. What originally started as a fun joke among the founding members of the company grew into a tradition with every member who has come through the company.
