Kate McStraw

Kate is a Producer & Agent for Change with Extraordinary Bodies. She is currently producing two of our new show in development ‘Human’, which will tour from Autumn 2021, and ‘Delicate’ which will tour in 2022.

Kate’s journey with the company began in 2012 whilst she was graduating from her degree in Performance Design at the Arts University Bournemouth. She managed the design and creation of 80+ costumes in a large-scale community performance called ‘Breath’ on Weymouth Beach, which was part of the opening celebrations of the Olympic Sailing events.

Outside of her work with Extraordinary Bodies, Kate is a freelance creative producer working with a number of other brilliant and status quo challenging artists and artist-led companies. These include Viv Gordon Company, Anna Berry and Green Ginger. She has also collaborated with Strike A Light, Inside Out Dorset Festival, Made by Katie Green, Cohan Collective and Butterfly Theatre Company.

Kate is particularly passionate about removing barriers to arts and cultural activities, through supporting diverse artists and audiences.
