Kate Morris' Work


When Bygones Won’t Let Go

The newest work from Out Innerspace Dance Theatre By Kate Morris

To “let bygones be bygones” means to let go of negative elements of the past and get on with things. Out Innerspace’s Bygones invites us to consider how negative experiences persist in the present and the ways we might cling to them, even at our own expense.


Emerging with Resilience

Eking Out a Life in Dance By Kate Morris

Emerging dancers, like their peers in other arts sectors, require determination, ingenuity and discipline. Graduates today seem better equipped to deal with the realities of a career in dance, but they require a strong professional network and community in order to persist. Easing the transition has become a goal for a number of service organizations, while grassroots initiatives and collectives provide spaces of creation and exploration, as well as mentorship opportunities, that keep them dancing.

Responding to Challenging Works By Kate Morris


In Memoriam: Grant Strate (1927 - 2015)

Grant Strate, often dubbed the elder statesman of Canadian dance, passed away in his home in Vancouver on Monday evening. Strate’s achievements are incalculable because his contributions share one quality: they endure and continue to create impacts on dance in Canada that are beyond measure.


Forging New Communities By Kate Morris

Sensing the Common Good

Learning from the Toronto Country Dancers By Brittany Duggan, Kate Morris

Contra and country dancing have been practiced for centuries. We joined one group in Toronto to investigate why the social dance persists. It turns out that it is a strong community and by joining in, one immediately feels a part of it. And it’s really fun!
