Kate Fry designs costumes for opera, theater, film and dance.
She made her LA Opera debut with Thumbprint in 2017. Her work explores clothing as poetry, to illustrate the complex nature of identity as both individual and contextual within society. Recently, Fry’s designs have shown with the LA Philharmonic (composer Jacob Cooper), at HERE Arts Center (The Idiot by Robert Lyons and Kristin Marting), and the Spoleto Festival USA (The Little Match Girl, a collaboration with puppeteer Mark Down and director Phelim McDermott).
Beyond the stage, Fry's work ranges from fine art—teaming up with French artist Julien Previeux’s project What Shall We Do Next (winner of the Prix Marcel Duchamp)—to film and television, most recently designing costumes for a 1960s-era television pilot, The Picture (directed by David Winkler).
Fry's work has been shown at The Public Theater, NY City Center, Grand Palais Paris, 3LD, La Mama, REDCAT, Prototype Opera Festival, The Bootleg Theater, Honor Fraser gallery, Prague Quadrennial, and the Tribeca Film Festival. MFA: California Institute of the Arts. (KateFry.com)
