Worktable is an exciting installation with various rooms that you explore one by one. At the start you are given instructions, equipment, safety goggles, and materials that you can use. And then you get to work: let your creativity run free! Kate McIntosh gives you a hammer, you do the rest.

In In Many Hands, artist-in-residence Kate McIntosh explores tactility. She invites you to test and to touch, but also to listen and to smell. Along with other visitors, but without speaking, you will experiment with materials in a series of sensorial ‘situations’. In Many Hands is part laboratory, part expedition, part meditation: follow your nose and your curiosity!

Worktable is an installation with various rooms that you explore one by one. Once inside, you are given instructions, equipment, safety goggles, and materials that you can use. It's up to you to decide how things come apart: artist-in-residence Kate McIntosh gives you a hammer, you do the rest.

Flanked by two clumsy assistants, artist-in-residence Kate McIntosh stands on the stage as a high priestess in a glittering gown. During a kind of revue, they passionately devote themselves to a series of household experiments. Dark Matter is an extremely funny production that simultaneously evokes a sense of ominousness.

From 23 to 28 October choreographer and artist-in-residence at Kaaitheater Kate McIntosh is presenting three of her pieces in one week: Dark Matter (2009), Worktable (2011) and her latest performance In Many Hands (2016). Together the works show the evolution that has taken place in McIntosh’ practice: from being a stage animal to creating delicate dramaturgies, from silence to words to sound, but also the appearance of a lot of objects. We took advantage of the summer break to invite her for an in-depth interview.
