About

 

Katrina Wolfe is an interdisciplinary artist and teacher. Her various practices are integrated in live performances involving sound making installations and costumes which are altered by the moving body over the course of one to several hours. Her movement practice combines Butoh dance with aspects of Vipassana meditation and sculpture. After years of drawing and painting, Katrina began to study figurative sculpture in 2006, later teaching and exploring sculpture in a variety of styles and mediums. In 2012, three years after being introduced to Butoh, Katrina began taking intensive workshops with Atsushi Takenouchi and training with Joan Laage in Seattle. She was also greatly inspired by the teaching of Daisuke Yoshimoto, and the work and footage of Butoh founder Tatsumi Hijikata. Katrina has recently opened Studio Ma in Seattle Washington, where she teaches Butoh workshops twice weekly and performs.
