Kat works with spoken word promoter Raise the Bar and was artist in residence with Artspace Lifespace during Summer 2019. She is currently working on her first solo show Dry Season and has just finished the first stage of research & development with the support of Arts Council England.

Kat has told stories for adults and children, worked with an ecologist to create site-specific explorations of myth, folklore and science, presented at the University of South Wales’ annual Storytelling Symposium, and performed at poetry events and festivals across the UK, including WOMAD, Shambala and the Eden Project. She was once paid to ride around Bath harassing the public from the back of an electric stegosaurus. This remains the highlight of her career.
