Processed with VSCO with c1 presetKathleen Dycaico is a choreographer and installation artist living in Brooklyn, NY.

Her work, both choreography and installation, deals with the aim to eden/heaven and the dystopian end times in which we exist.

Born and raised in the fertile farmlands and post-1960s utopia wreckage of California, she was fed on a steady diet of science fiction and fantasy novels until she moved to Brazil at 18. She graduated with a degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of California at Davis, immersed in the study of creating perfect cities and societies. It was here that she began to direct choreographic inquiries finding tenderness in the void.

She is currently a partner and Residency Coordinator at Otion Front Studio, an experimental performance space in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn. Recent projects include Apple-Eaters, a solo show at UC Berkeley in California, and Authority Figure, as one of 7 choreographers at the Knockdown Center in New York. Authority Figure brought together musicians, installation artists, choreographers, and over 150 performers in a choreographic experience challenging ideas of authority in our everyday lives. Authority Figure received press in the New York Times, The Fader, The Village Voice, and more.
