Kathryn Fischer

Berlin, Germany

Kathryn Fischer (aka Mad Kate) is a performance artist and writer currently living in Berlin, Germany. Integrating elements of punk, butoh, prose, Afro-Cuban dance, freak-burlesque, vocals and conceptual costume, Mad Kate has performed extensively around Europe, Russia and the United States--pioneering a unique style that is outspokenly feminist, genderqueer and powerfully honest. She has recently begun a new collaboration, Mad Kate/the Tide, with acclaimed guitarist Jaco Bertacco aka Tide of Sound. Together they explore the concept of ALIVE:NESS, taking a multimedia, hyperlinked and textual approach to live and recorded musical performance.
