Katie Day

I am Artistic Director of The Other Way Works, which reinvents the way people engage with theatre, using real-world spaces and emerging technologies. Based in Birmingham, we have been successfully working at the forefront of theatrical innovation since 2004 with our own distinctive approach to creating and presenting theatre. We integrate games, technology and immersive experiences with site-specific performance. I am a regular speaker at conferences and events, recently in Amsterdam (IETM), Sheffield, Leeds and Birmingham, and a visiting lecturer at Coventry University in Experimental Narratives. In 2018-2019, I will continue to collaborate with (BOM Fellow) John Sear to produce ‘A Moment of Madness’. This project pioneers exciting new ground in the areas of digital technologies and interactive performance, bringing together immersive theatre and real-world, puzzle-based gaming in a way that I have never seen done before.
