Katie has an MFA and a BFA. She acts a lot, writes a lot, has sat through a lot of theory classes, has devised a lot of art with a lot of different kinds of people, and has enjoyed every second of it. This company is her attempt to take everything she has learned and loved about Theatre and put it all in one place with the help of an amazing group of artists who also have a ton of different kinds of experiences to bring to the table. It is her belief that Collaborative Community-Based art is really where it is "at" when it comes to Contemporary Theatre. She is humbled by this entire experience and is growing every day. She thanks you for reading, thanks you for sharing, thanks you for making space for this wildly different experience in the already crowded art world. She basically just thanks you for giving a hoot. We'll keep on as long as you are here.
