Katherine Leung is a dance artist, designer and performance maker.
Originally trained as a dancer in both classical ballet and contemporary dance. She went on to pursue her passion for creating performance, through a Masters in Performance Design and Practice at Central Saint Martins, London.
Katherine is primarily focused on dance and stage design as her two chosen mediums for performance making, drawing from her past training in dance and influences from her previous collaborations. Her work utilises the two mediums to investigate and challenge the reception of themes and concepts both current and personal, from mixed media experimentation as well as collaborating with artists across various disciplines within her work.
She is currently living in Berlin, and has worked on and shown performances in different venues in Europe. She has familiarised herself with the process of production from start to finish by taking on varied roles within the backstage of theatre. Also devising original works overseas in collaboration with over 20 different artists in Greece (Athens), Italy (Ancona/Polverigi) and Germany (Berlin). She is currently a member of Mapped Productions and 9 Grams of Moon as a collaborating artist. She has currently taken an interest in the possibilities of dance in film.
