Catch 51


CATCH is a multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary, rough and ready performance series-event put on every two months or so, usually in Brooklyn, NY. Curated and hosted by Jeff Larson and Andrew Dinwiddie and brilliantly administered by Caleb Hammons.

Katherine Brook, Dillon de Give, Walter Dundervill, Yvonne Meier, Heather Olson, Kaz Phillips Safer, Tina Satter, Half Straddle…

Founded in Brooklyn, NY in 2003 by Jenny Seastone Stern as a home for the emerging avant-garde, Catch has become an integral part of the downtown community, presenting both short and in-progress works by Tere O’Connor, Big Dance Theater, David Neumann, Jennifer Monson, Cynthia Hopkins, Taylor Mac, Dean Moss, Young Jean Lee, Miguel Gutierrez, Christopher Williams, Karinne Keithley, Adrienne Truscott, Neal Medlyn, Faye Driscoll, Ivy Baldwin, Ann Liv Young, Kenny Mellman, Jeanine Durning, Beth Gill, John Moran, Robbinschilds, Dynasty Handbag, Sam Kim, Witness Relocation, Chris Yon, the Nature Theater of Oklahoma, the Theater of a Two-Headed Calf, the National Theater of the United States of America and dozens of terrific artists you may not have heard of … yet.

Catch presents a stunning array of emerging artists, giving them an opportunity to share the stage with an expanding galaxy of downtown luminaries. This makes everyone’s work more exciting, raising the stakes for young creators and encouraging experimental freedom in our more accomplished artists. Not only does Catch have “the best short-form programming going,” it also has the liveliest and best-looking audience – beautiful, young ladies and gentlemen (and lowlifes) who come to drink, see great work and mingle with the artists after the show. Catch is a social event and a serious show, where loyal fans of the individual artists mingle with Catch allegiances to view work they know will be rough … and ready.
