A story shaper, performance maker, and culture shaker, Catherine María "Cat" Rodríguez serves collaboration, community, and lqqks wherever the art takes her and whatever stage it’s in.
Cat’s craft entails bringing discernment to decision-making and Joy to the process. Experiences as a performer and dramaturg guide both her theater making and critical writing. In this, she’s attentive to not only what’s being made, but also how as well as through whose bodies and eyes. Cat works from a structural analysis and draws on her skills as a trained facilitator to do so. Black and Latinx feminisms as well as collectivist organizing methods fundamentally inform her arts practice and pathways through the world. She's a "people person" with a politic and love for the ridiculous.
Cat works in English and Spanish, talks with her hands, y anda con ganas. A freelance artist, she considers herself a nomad but always names New Orleans and Nicaragua home.
