Wonderful person. Creative but always had the time for you
I was lucky enough to work with Kate, albeit briefly. An incredible artist and interpreter of this world.
She will be greatly missed x
Such an amazing person and creative artist. The days I expent with her I realized how much she shines and how generous she was.
Kate was a very dear friend and a colleague. She brought an amazing depth to our work with Bred in the Bone through music and voice. Kate help us explore even further the world of sound and our voices on a level that completely merged with the work. She was a true artist and a true seeker of truth. I had, and still have, great respect for her intuition, the depth of her work and hoe she immersed herself in her creativity. Like an artist. Kate was a poet, a musician, a singer, a performer. She drew, she photographed and made pictures from flowers.She probably created in even more ways. She was also a friend, a good friend who I will miss sorely and who had such an impact on my life, through our work and through our friendship..
It’s hard to put into words what Kate meant to me. I met Kate at Rose Bruford and we bonded instantly over our love of Chicago (I’m from Chicago and she had just finished studying there in the winter). We became quick friends and I was so impressed with her artistic sensibilities and her skills as a performer that I asked her to do my MA showcase with me, even though she wasn’t in my program. We performed scenes from Bug, the play by Tracy Letts and had a really intense rehearsal process where we spent almost 8 hours each day with each other rehearsing. I’m so thankful she said yes and that we got to do our showcase together. She pushed me so much as an artist and as a performer through that process and I don’t think I could have done this with anybody else. I’m so thankful for the time we got to spend together, both socially at drama school and in the rehearsal room and I look back at that time with such fond memories. She was a truly unique and singular person. A true artist and an extremely generous person. She was one of my closest friends at Drama school and I really am so lucky that I got to know her. I miss her dearly but I am thankful for the impact she made, both artistically and as a friend.
Kit, the most beautiful soul. Kind, witty and generous to your core. Sending peace and love to the stars dear friend. x
I only worked with her Kate a few times, and although we didn't see eye to eye on some things (we both being passionate and politically active), I could nonetheless respect her commitment and ability as a singer-songwriter. She came across as selfless, both in the room and outside it; by the nature of the work she produced and the way she interacted with others. To die so young is of course a tragedy, but what led to this is a tragedy for all of us. I've been in similar places myself, and can say that the care by others combined with the will to genuinely listen can move mountains when you're in a hole. It really is ok not to be ok, and it's important to talk to each other beyond the British superficial "how are you?".
Good luck Kit, and thanks for the music and thoughts your journey left through life left us.
