Katie Day is Artistic Director of The Other Way Works. She develops original concepts for new projects and productions, and leads multidisciplinary teams in the practical realisation of these. Her particular area of interest is the emerging frontier where theatre meets new technologies. She is always on a quest to provide magical and bespoke experiences for ever more sophisticated audiences. She was the winner of the Hello Culture Award in 2014.

The Other Way Works creates playful theatre that immerses our audiences in the story. The intimate scenarios we create allow our audiences to explore places and perspectives anew, provoking them to change the way they see the world.
We are at the leading edge of a new wave of theatre makers re-inventing the way people engage with culture, using real world spaces and emerging technologies. Our work integrates games, technology and immersive experiences with site-specific theatre.

Katie joined iShed from December 2009 to 2010 as an Associate Producer, to run the Theatre Sandbox programme during 2010.

Theatre Sandbox was a national scheme to support the production of six new experimental pieces of theatre/performance which utilise pervasive media technologies.
