Collateral & Co., a collaborative Contemporary Dance Company, was founded in May 2017 when Founder and Artistic Director Caitlin McCarty returned to the Reno, Nevada area after working for New York-based Gallim Dance. Collateral & Co. explores the intricacies of the human experience and investigates the nuances of everyday life through the exploration of written word, dance film, physical and emotional experiences, and bodily expression. The company’s most recent work includes its performance of Dust Horizon at the Nevada Museum of Art in April of 2019, Dust Settled as part of Artown in July of 2019, and The Space Above at the Nevada Museum of Art in February 2020. The company filmed its first dance film, The Space Above, produced and directed in collaboration with Tweaking Reality Studios, in October of 2019. The film was named an official selection of the Utah Dance Film Festival and premiered at the Nevada Museum of Art in January of 2020.
