Catherine Cabeen and Company

A woman, arms fluid, rises from a giant foil cyclone, looking at once like a flame and a mermaid. With this moment in her new dance piece, Fire!, Seattle choreographer Catherine Cabeen hints at the fusion of beauty and violence she perceives in the work of French New Realist artist Niki de Saint Phalle, known for her provocative works. Cabeen’s team of artistic collaborators and dancers “investigate” de Saint Phalle’s work—including her exuberant, voluptuous “Nana” sculptures and her paintings notoriously finished with bullet holes—through the medium of movement.
