  • Catherine Duquette


    Catherine makes performances that are fiercely alive with her audience. She specialises in interactive theatre -- bridging live art, game design, and social activism. Borrowing elements of play from game design, she positions her audience as co-players, offers meaningful choice on stage, and creates a space for dialogue. This gives every performance varied tones -- from hilariously funny as people reveal their foibles to deeply moving as they open up about their vulnerabilities. Every show offers an element of risk while demonstrating the possibility and power of moving through that risk. 

    Catherine is an American based in London but developed her practice in Berlin, Germany. Her work has appeared at the English Theatre Berlin, Sophiensaele, MOMENTUM, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Camden People’s Theatre, Battersea Arts Centre, Attenborough Arts Centre, and Omnibus Theatre Clapham.

    3 x Thursday: Mary and Her Monster

    Thu 15 Jun at 7:30pm
    Mary must write a story. Frankenstein must create a monster. Both will create life. An interactive lab to balance the power and vulnerability of mothering in our tech-obsessed world.

    'Every interaction has a purpose. This isn’t about putting on a show. It’s about creating real change in people’s lives.'

    Catherine Duquette talks about what interactive means for Mary and Her Monster, a work-in-progress sharing on 15 Jun as part of the 10th Anniversary of Calm Down Dear.
