An interview with Cathy from the Independent (found via the FT site).

Quote:
Cathy Marston is not, has never been, nor ever will be, a man. Her gender may be common in the street, but in the exclusive club of ballet choreographers it is rare. Modern dance is crammed with powerful creative women - Isadora Duncan, Mary Wigman and Martha Graham invented the thing. But ballet, with few exceptions, has been sculpted by male hands. "Of the 25 or so choreographers I've worked for, none have been women," Marston says, crossing one fat-free, pipe-cleaner leg over the other and shaking a head of dark blond curls. "I've tried to figure out why and I can't."

Photo Chris Nash from <A HREF="http://www.diquero.fsnet.co.uk/" TARGET=_blank>Cathy's website</A></small><P>The article makes a good read and in the paper edition of The Indie has a lovely, big piccie of Cathy. One point of clarification - at one place there is a juxtaposition of the phrase 'bad choreography' just after a reference to the Henri Oguike Dance Company. I think it's clear from some discussion further on that Cathy didn't intend these two phrases to be linked, but for the avoidance of dance, Cathy has assured me that there was no intention to criticise Henri Oguike's choreography.<P>For those who would like to read more about Cathy, there is much to enjoy in <A HREF="http://www.ballet.co.uk/magazines/yr_02/apr02/cathy_marston_11.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>Cathy's diary on ballet.co</B></A><BR><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited April 16, 2002).]

Dancer, choreographer, Royal Opera House artist. At just 27, Cathy Marston is ruling the roost
Interview by Jenny Gilbert for The Independent

When you turn up to interview the Royal Opera House's first ever Associate Artist, a choreographer whose CV is long on Royal Ballet premieres and whose diary is stuffed with dates for showing her work elsewhere, it's slightly odd to find her hurling herself around a studio at another choreographer's bidding.

Yet Cathy Marston, 27, is that rare bird: a high-flyer who refuses to abandon her home territory. And her reasoning is unassailable. She trained as a dancer (Royal Ballet Upper School), has always worked as a dancer (classical companies in Zurich and Lucerne), and says she feels like a dancer (she certainly looks like one). Besides, she says, she's not so arrogant as to believe there aren't lessons she can learn from a mature experimenter in stage narrative such as Kim Brandstrup.
