CREATOR + TEACHING ARTIST + DIRECTOR

Welcome!

About me

My name is Katie Butler and I am a theatre maker and educator investigating the nature of connection and community in a deeply divided world. As a creator I explore the ways we subvert the fault lines of politics and ideologies to reach out to one another. I often end up with more questions than answers. 

And sometimes I bring silliness into the world and call it Art.

The Bryan Project

The Bryan Project is an ongoing community-driven documentary piece centering around the town of Bryan, Ohio. Civic practice collides with storytelling to uncover the role of the arts in rural America and questions what truly makes a small town thrive.

 

*This project is a proud recipient of the NET/TEN Remote Connection mini-grant to continue the work!

TEACHER+ARTIST

I am a Philadelphia-based theatre artist and educator, with a BFA in Theatre Performance from the University of Texas at Arlington, a professional certification from the Portland Actors Conservatory and an MFA from The Pig Iron School with a degree in Devised and Physical Performance.

 

Since 2015 I have been an arts educator, working with students aged 7-18 in classroom and after school settings. My work as an artist revolves around fostering human connection and the collision of storytelling and civic practice, blending mediums and styles to serve communities. I aim to work with underserved populations with the guiding principles of collaboration and physical storytelling to mobilize community-wide arts practices that foster diversity and growth.
