Katy Dye is an award winning artist from the UK. She creates artworks that include performance/theatre/visual art and photographic collaborations. She is interested in iconography, materiality and entertainment. Whether it is creating performance or visual artwork, Katy seeks to connect to physical sensation when making work. She often approaches her live performances as though they were paintings or drawings. She is inspired by many forms including dance, photography and sound. Katy is interested in the joy and subversion of creating art and bringing this to audiences. She has been involved in a broad range of projects, from public processions to pub quiz events.
Her performances have been supported by organisations such as National Theatre of Scotland, In Between Time, The BAC, Camden People's Theatre, Rich Mix, Hab Arts Manchester, and The Tom Hunter Foundation.
