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 Dog (Featurepoint Cinema), Schizo Cool (Schizcago Pictures), 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, LaCosta Theatre, and a variety of community festivals. In her spare time she practices aerial circus arts at the Actors Gymnasium. 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.
