Mad Kate (they/them) is an electronic producer, performance artist and writer based in Berlin. Their explorations of borders between/within bodies and touch as political practice have brought them to theaters, communes, technomansions, prisons, dungeons, squats and galleries around the world. In January 2020 they released a new single, “Born Out Of Sex“, with their postpunkperformance project Mad Kate | the Tide. Mad Kate is also one half of the producer-performer duo HYENAZ, who released the EP and video Columns on 13 January. HYENAZ tour a techno ritual based in consent, touch, sound, and movement to break physical and mental isolation and to spark discourse that is both critical and utopian. HYENAZ recently produced the sound design for Du Verdienst Deinen Krieg (8 Soldiers Moonsick) directed by Sasha Marianna Salzmann at Maxim Gorki Theatre Studio Я. They also choreographed Clusterfuck, a contemporary dance group touring with Peaches stage show “There’s Only One Peach with the Hole in the Middle”. Mad Kate is currently producing sexWORKperformanceART, which explores the concept of “performance” and the sexual/ized body in labour and production of Art.
