'Ding Dong Yvonne Calling' and 'OzStar Airlines' are physical character comedy and circus driven pieces whereas 'Festival T.V. ' is a project that involves a walkabout, a live show and creates digital documentation of a festival event shared on the web to reach a larger online audience. Kate truly believes that variety is the spice of life and feels very blessed to work in the arts. We at the Moisture Festival feel blessed to have her make her way to Seattle to join us for the 2015 event.
