Katy Baird, the self-proclaimed ‘hot-mess’, will present the London premiere of her latest work, Get Off, at Battersea Arts Centre from 8 to 25 May 2024. She is an artist who frequently finds herself in bizarre situations of her own making. Her practice is centred around a desire to create a shared space that can be both welcoming and radical. After the success of her debut WorkshyGet Off offers a candid, poignant, and hilarious take on the human experience.

An honest and raw interrogation into our need for distraction, Get Off is an acutely personal one-woman show about excess and consumption. It raises essential questions about the autonomy we possess in choosing where and how we seek fulfilment. From Katy’s trademark humorous perspective, she unveils her journey into the ‘pursuit of pleasure’ as the audience experiences an evening that challenges and aims to bring us closer together.

Reviews for Workshy:

“Messy, anarchic, very funny” – The Stage.

“Baird is a brilliant, clever and funny performer” – Exeunt.

“You can just imagine the Arts Council symposium. It would be called ‘What If Live Art Fell Into The Wrong Hands’ and the main topic of discussion would be Katy Baird” – The Scotsman.
