Hello! I am Katherina, most people call me Kat!
I am Set and Costume Designer for Performance, Visual Artist and Creative Collaborator.
Born in 1982 in Bulgaria I have a Fine Art Diploma from the National High School for Fine Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria and a First Class Honors Degree in Theatre Design from Wimbledon School of Art, London. I have been living and working in the UK since 1999.
I design for theatre, performance, contemporary dance, site specific events, interactive installations, outdoor shows, you name it I have probably done it! Or if I haven’t done it, I’d love to do it. My designs tour extensively in the UK, Europe and the wider world.
My visual art works are a vital part of my practice and are part and parcel of my design thinking. My recent paintings, prints and drawings can be found on my website but for older work, do get in touch. I make a lot and often have no time to upload it here.
I am also the Artistic Director of Two Destination Language together with Alister Lownie, an award winning theatre company which tours extensively around the UK and internationally. Two Destination Language makes visually striking and intellectually stimulating work about identity, belonging, politics and how cultures interacts and are defined in contemporary society. @2destlang www.twodestinationlanguage.com
