My name is Katie Butler and I am an artist. My work investigates 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.


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 and adults in classroom, higher ed 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.
