I light shows. I use a lighting language that is bold, beautiful and truthful. I’m interested in work that is about humanity. I love making shows with music, and shows with dance. I love new writing. My favourite rehearsal rooms to be in are those with an open, collaborative process where all voices are valued.
I have worked mostly in the UK, and also in China, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Canada, the USA, Mexico, Ireland, Holland, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Armenia, Romania, Russia and the Czech Republic.
I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with some amazing artists. I am committed to development, equality and diversity in theatre through mentorship. Find out more: www.katharinewilliams.co.uk
