Kate Billingsley is a trilingual improvisational actor and teacher. She has taught at BIG and performed with Pop 6, Your New Dad, Maggie, and forms half of the duo, Mamamouchi, along with Marc Reber. In her funny, tender, insightful, genre-busting one-woman show, CommuniKate: ArtAlive!, directed by Mike Harris, she takes art history off its dusty shelf and gives people an intimate, visceral, emotional connection with artists they love. She performed CommuniKate at Second City in Chicago this past October. She has performed in French in Paris and the South of France, in Spanish in Seville, and in English in Manhattan (UCB, Magnet Theater) and in Baltimore with BIG (including a fundraising benefit performance for Baltimore’s NPR station). After 7 years in France and Spain she is launching her show back in the U.S., and is really excited to be back with BIG.
