Kate Fry is a costume designer and scenographer for stage, screen, and themed entertainment.
As a scenographer, Fry designed both the set and costumes for an immersive, devised opera The Wreck, created with director Annie Saunders, composer Mariana Sadovska, and the ICE ensemble at Opera Omaha and hailed as “ingenious” by the Wall Street Journal. Recent productions include a confidential themed entertainment play-test, the immersive techno-opera Looking at You by composer Kamala Sankaram (Here Arts Center), a Neiman Marcus commercial featuring Rachel Brosnahan, and an immersive experience for Santander Bank at the Oculus in NYC that brought awareness of domestic violence to millions of pedestrians in the World Trade Center hub.
In 2019 Fry made her Broadway debut as Associate Costume Designer for Burn This (Hudson Theatre), and designed costumes for Rapper Tierra Whack’s music video Mumbo Jumbo, which was Grammy-nominated for Music Video of the year. Fry’s work has also been shown at BAM Harvey, The Public Theatre, NY City Center, La Mama, Walt Disney Concert Hall, REDCAT, SF MOMA, Spoleto Opera Festival, Alabama Shakespeare Festival, The Poly Theatre Beijing, The Sydney Festival Australia, Divine Comedy Festival Poland, Prague Quadrennial, Tribeca Film Festival, and the Venice Film Festival.
