Kate Zibluk (she/her) is currently a student at Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at The New School in New York City. Residing in Brooklyn, she has been able to witness a wide range of experimental theater and performance that is shaping what she wants to do in her future. So far, she’s not super sure! Kate is pretty chatty, a lover of birds and iced coffee, and in general, an extremely anxious human being (the last point is something she’s working on)! Kate has experience in working the box office at The Brick Theater, managing The Brick’s social media, doing basic theater tech, assistant stage managing Eugene Lang College’s production of “The Laramie Project” at Mabou Mines, performing in Eugene Lang College’s production of “Hoppla, We’re Alive!” at LaMama, and running around doing anything she can to be helpful.
