Kat O'Connor is a Midwest native, but born with an Irish passion that was a bit too big for a small town. A collaborative performer
who is equal to the challenge of co-creating a story, she brings her own talent and experience and blends it with your directorial vision. She has been featured in a number of independent films, including the award-winning short film Hatboxes (Fernwork Productions), Out of Sight (Nebula Creatives), featured in the 2015 Court Métrage at the Festival de Cannes, and 16th Street (Studio 22).
She is a company member of Terra Mysterium Performance Troupe, and has performed with them both musically and theatrically at the Chicago Fringe Festival, The Athenaeum Theatre, a music video, and multiple festivals and conventions. She also practices aerial circus arts at the Actors Gymnasium.
In 2014, she co-founded the production company Burning Brigid Media to create stories for those who are commonly overlooked. A graduate of Drew University, she is a natural storyteller, with words or, just as often, without. Her personal mission is to tell the story, and thus change the world, one heart at a time.
