60x60 Dance @ Galapagos, NYC (4/7/09) [Wreede/Durst]

Music: Katrina Wreede
Dance: Kiley Durst

Katrina Wreede enjoys writing music for chamber ensembles, orchestras, dancers, protests, youth groups, and friends. In between she supports herself by sawing on the viola, including pretending to be a violinist for Prince Charles and serenading an office meeting at a Burger King. Last year she took three little girls from her neighborhood, ages 9, 10 and 12, to hear the 60x60 show at Mills College. They had never heard of a college before, and they had never sat in the dark listening to music. Afterwards she asked if they'd like to help make a submission for this year. With much enthusiasm, they created a montage of pre-teen-ness addressing girls' body image issues and, oh yes, silliness.

Kiley Durst graduated Summa Cum Laude from Slippery Rock University with a BA in dance. She is currently dancing with York Dance Works and has also worked with ACFDance, Attack Theatre, Michael Walsh, Gwen Hunter-Ritchie, Art Bridgman, Myrna Packer, and Amy Schnelle. Kiley has also presented her solo work at the Dumbo Dance Festival.
