Karen Sherman is a Minneapolis-based artist and choreographer whose work explores themes related to manual labor, biography, and the history of dance and theater. Dedicating her life to the stage, Sherman has worked all over the world in various theatrical roles, from technical director to production manager, from stage technician to sound designer—each in some way contributing to her artistic practice on the whole. In 1996, Sherman first appeared at The Kitchen’s Improvisational Dance Festival, and in 2017, she participated in The Kitchen’s two-week open work period Half Straddle: Here I Go, pt. 2 of You by giving a talk entitled “From K Hole to Glory Hole."
