Company, based in Portland, Oregon, which produced modern dance and physical theater productions, as

HARRY DIESEL PRODUCTIONS is the brain child of Shaun Gunning and Kate Dulcich, two actor/writer/
musicians who had faded out of the NYC theater scene recently due to the realities of paying rent and the
dissolution of Hipgnosis theatre company, of which Kate was a member. When they were faced with two
milestone birthdays in the same year, they heard the deafening sound of a clock ticking and got a rush of
invigorating energy. They wanted to do something but weren’t sure what or how. So they looked at their
cat, Harry Diesel, and asked him what to do. Harry yawned, which meant: “Go after your dreams you guys!
No one is doing the shows that you want to do? Do them yourselves!” And so they did. This is their first
producing collaboration together.
