Combining engaging performance with elaborate self-made costumes, Kate Mior produces visually stunning creative-movement based living art, mime and an array of hilarious characters; from street theatre installations to art-house shows and bawdy vaudeville, she performs with professional circuses in shows and tours as a solo performer in the world of buskerfests.
Kate began performing on the streets of Toronto, Canada while completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Production at Ryerson University. Upon graduation, Kate was invited to participate in festivals across the globe, so she packed her bags and never looked back! For three years, Kate studied corporeal mime technique intensively with Dr. Giuseppe Condello under whom she developed her base movement vocabulary. She bolstered this training with workshops in pantomime with Rick Warmer in Tucson, Arizona, as well as clown and dance with Grindl in Toronto to finesse her character work.
From informal street corners to world-class festivals, intimate cabaret stages to big top tents, Kate has performed her unique installations and amazing mime shows across Canada, the US, Europe, Asia and Africa, picking up an impressive array of variety skills along the way: from balancing flaming cakes on her face to juggling machetes, Kate is a highly skilled character artist who creates unique shows from poignant and contemplative to downright hilarious.
