About Air Katherine

My name is Katherine Hutchinson and I am an aerialist. I have been an aerial/circus coach for the last 6 years. It has served me well. I earned a steady income and even created my trademarked style, Air Ballet™. However, as a full time coach my art took a back seat. I put all of my energy towards directing full-length youth troupe performances and choreographing fun and exciting combinations for my adult students to learn and perfect. Slowly, the time and energy I was willing to put towards my own creative endeavors waned.

That’s where you come in! By offering monthly support you are giving me the space I need to devote more of my time and energy towards my art projects. Not only that, but you’re pledging to continue to give me that support so I can look to the future and say, “oh yeah, in 6 months I’ll have enough money to make that video, or take that workshop.” That kind of freedom of thinking goes a long way for someone like me who has 25 goals of varying degrees of difficulty, all of which require money.

What are my ideas? Who am I? What is my art about? My art is often about women. My work begins with in depth research. “All of the Accused” is an aerial piece about the Salem Witch Trials. I made an act about Cleopatra. I created an act for an opera about the sorceress Circe. After the 2016 election I acted out my preferred reality and created an act called “Madame President”. Of course, I’ve also made acts about finding love (“Embody”) and wanting Fame (“Some People Want it All”).

What’s next? I am in the beginning stages of an act about body image. I have already finished the research aspect. I read The Eating Disorder Sourcebook. I read about body dysmorphic disorder. I read Health at Every Size and The Body is Not an Apology to continue working through my own learned body shame. I have begun to compile images, quotes and stories to inform my work. I have also started training aerial consistently again. Eventually, I would like to perform this aerial piece in a big theatre in front of lots of people but...well, you know. We’re not doing theaters and big groups of people right now so I have to shift my focus.

Lately, I’ve been making short videos and writing. I have created dance videos, a tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and even shared a few of my aerial improvisations. I have also been writing A LOT. When I injured my knee back in October 2019 I started my autobiography. It’s very rough but it’s almost 100 pages long now. I’ve been sharing some stories from other art projects I’ve worked on and even begun writing about art projects I hope to do in the future. Your support helps me feel like my art matters. Your support helps me feel like someone cares. Your support gives me a reason to keep writing, dancing, thinking, flipping and creating. THANK YOU.
