Caitlin Strongarm is an Australian born performer, maker and facilitator currently based between the UK, Australia and China.
She specialises in participatory arts experiences for all ages; working primarily in puppetry, clown, non-verbal performance, interactive installation, digital and transmedia theatre, theatre for young audiences, and community-informed collaborative works.
As a multi-disciplinary artist and performer, she has been seen and loved in theatres and festivals world-wide as a character and clown, high energy physical theatre artist, street-theatre provocateur and giant puppeteer, as well as an interactive theatre facilitator in schools and hospitals.
As a designer and maker she has worked across theatre, festivals and film in Australia, China and the UK. Her designs in costume, puppetry and art range from delicate to grotesque, are completely original and 100% captivating.
As a facilitator, she is gentle and provoking, combining a BA Applied Theatre (Griffith University, 2012) with years of experience as a distraction therapist, interactive theatre-maker, and teacher to deliver arts-based workshops that centre a collaborative and empowering process for all participants.
