Katy has been creating and performing work based on traditional folktale, myth and legend since 1996. She was commissioned to develop Rhiannon by the Festival at the Edge in 2003 and subsequently toured this widely, including to the Barbican Pit Theatre and international storytelling festivals in Wales, Austria and Sweden. She has also worked extensively with the Norse myth of Sigurd, including performances at the Royal Opera House (Clore Studio) and Blackheath Halls.
Katy’s latest solo show is The Falcon Bride, drawing from the Icelandic saga of Njal.
Other work for adult audiences includes The Romance of Lancelot and The Sky Beyond the Sky (a Venezuelan creation myth). In 2009, she was one of four shortlisted for the Arts Foundation Storytelling Fellowship. Katy also works with traditional stories in schools, museums and business settings.
