Join KT Niehoff for 3 days of risk taking, dancing, and fearless encounters.

This Fall KT is remounting her celebrated 2010 "A Glimmer of Hope or Skin or Light". In 2006, KT began investigating the relationship between audience, artist and proximity. This search led her to seek out environments that ask the performer and the witness to confront each other in more potent ways. A Glimmer of Hope or Skin or Light, in all its forms, is an outcropping of this search beginning with the premise that every interaction holds untapped potential, that can sculpt uncommon encounters, moody collisions, raucous spectacle and virtuoso dancing – asking for more resonant connection and embracing the success or failure that ensues. Niehoff is expanding her posse of vibrant performers and seeks 6-10 showgirls to perform in the remount of this work to be presented at ACT Theater.

KT NIEHOFF is a Seattle based artist who makes events, dances, music, films, classes, spaces and fosters creative communities. She was featured in Dance Magazine’s “International Women in Dance” (’08) and on the covers of Dance Teacher Magazine (’12) and City Arts Seattle (’13). KT’s creative pursuits focus on audience/artist/ proximity, resulting in the majority of her work happening in non-traditional spaces. Her work has been presented throughout the U.S. and internationally in Japan, Ecuador, Germany and Canada and has received funding from The MAPFund, The NEA, The National Dance Project, The National Performance Network, and Seattle, King County and Washington State Arts Commissions. Niehoff is a veteran teacher of contemporary technique, composition and improvisation. For over 15 years she has taught throughout the U.S. and abroad – Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Oberlin College, Cornish College of the Arts, Tisch School of the Arts, University of Washington, The Hong Kong Academy of the Performing Arts, The SNDO Amsterdam – to name a few. From 1996-2006 she was the Director and co-founder of Velocity Dance Center and in 2011 opened her own creative research space on Capitol Hill called 10 degrees.
