Katie Armstrong

I am a dance artist, originally from Aberdeen, now based in Glasgow. I trained at Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance and graduated in 2010. During my third year, I danced with Rambert Company in Itzic Galilis' "A Linha Curva" as part of the Comedy of Change Tour. Since graduating I have worked with artists and companies including National Theatre Scotland, Company Chordelia, Scottish Opera, for Simon Fildes, Ines Coelho, Tai Shani, Eowyn Emerald and Dancers and Barrowland Ballet.

I have collaborated with ZENDEH Theatre to choreograph "HEART" (ACE Funded UK tour 2013-14) and with the Oran Mor for "The Yellow Wallpaper" (Scottish Tour 2015-16). I have created my own work over the past 10 years through support from various partners and funding bodies, including SKETCHES (Live) (through support from Creative Scotland, The Work Room Surge and in Partnership with Puppet Animation Scotland) SKETCHES Film Project (co-commission from Tramway and The Work Room for DIG 2019, and currently in partnership with Beacon Arts Centre/Platform Theatre through support from Creative Scotland and The Work Room) Stronghold (commission from Dance Base for "Now Here This" in collaboration with Lewis Normand, Lewis Landini and Signy Jakobsdottir). In 2020 I was commissioned to choreograph the opening ceremony to the Peoples Post Code Lottery's International Gala on Climate Change at the McEwan Hall in Edinburgh. In 2023, I will tour SKETCHES through support from Creative Scotlands Touring Fund for Dance and Theatre, and will present SKETCHES/GLISK as a double bill at Fringe Festival 2023 as part of the Made in Scotland Showcase.
