Cathy Weis Projects
Cathy Weis Projects is an artist-run nonprofit organization dedicated to producing two primary projects: Sundays on Broadway and WeisWorks.
Sundays on Broadway is an on-going performance series that brings together a distinctive group of artists to share ideas, present works both old and new, and to interact with the audience in a professional performance space where everyone is up close and personal. Sundays on Broadway "...has provided the field with a very valuable continuity of community, as well as non-market driven ways to keep gathering and dancing and sharing histories and ideas." (Culturebot)
WeisWorks is the body of work by Cathy Weis. Her performance work explores the partnership between live performance and video in order to “pose unnerving questions — about how and what we see, and about the nature of physical control, a subject central to dancers and people coping with the body’s failure (which means, at one point or another, all of us.)” (The Village Voice)
Cathy Weis Projects was founded in 1974 under the name Roxanne Dance Foundation by choreographers Risa Jaroslow and Wendy Perron. Weis has directed the organization since 1997.
Board of Directors:
Emelyne Garland is a certified Rolfer and movement teacher who serves as President of the Board of Cathy Weis Projects.
Ted Berger is the Executive Director Emeritus of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) where he served from 1973 as the country’s first statewide Artists-in-Schools Coordinator, becoming Executive Director in 1980 until retiring in 2005. He currently serves on the board of numerous organizations, including the Joan Mitchell Foundation.
Mary-Beth Hughes is a former dancer and the author of two novels and a short-story collection. Her latest book of stories The Ocean House was published in January 2021 by Grove-Atlantic. She currently teaches creative writing at Skidmore College.
A.M. Homes is the author of May We Be Forgiven, Jack, and This Book Will Save Your Life, which won the 2013 Orange/Women’s Prize for Fiction. Homes was born in Washington D.C., lives in New York City and teaches in the Creative Writing Program at Princeton.
