kat armstrong

actress, video/visual(/)artist, hot mess, etc

Kat (she/her) is an actress in her third year of post-secondary — drawn to messy buns, chipped piano keys, em dashes, cemeteries, Andromeda, and theatre’s hum. She’s been video-producing at Quest, filming with lbs/sq", devising at Ghost River, animating for Lunchbox, and composing for friends. If you dare: ask her about her “b**ch” drawing series. She falls into her own heart through shared intimate conversations and silly dance-wiggles. Her influences stretch from the palms of your hands to the psych ward. She loves Ephron, Mock, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, FKA Twigs, Estradiol, Evanescence, Natalie Ficner, and lavender. She thinks about ghosts every day.
