The Stage Newspaper

Drugs, food, or those little hearts on Instagram: The human brain processes all pleasures similarly. However, when Scottish hedonist, performer, and self-proclaimed hot mess Katy Baird opens the door to the world of desire on stage, the pleasant can quickly turn into the unpleasant - and vice versa. Ruthless, disarming, and interspersed with a great deal of British humor, Baird lustfully crosses the boundaries of taste (and of the audience) as if an invisible shame and protective filter of the theater had been removed. Like her smash hit WORKSHY, which was also shown at Kampnagel in 2017, her latest work GET OFF offers deeper insights into human needs and longing for conversation. Dressed only in a few neon strips, Baird aims to capture moments of disarming honesty and follows the credo of her co-director Kim Noble, whose disturbingly poetic works have been among the Summer Festival highlights in recent years: human abysses are best explored with sly humor!
