Kate Fry

Costume Designer

Kate Fry designs costumes for opera, theater, film, and dance. Recently, Fry’s designs have shown with LA Opera, LA Philharmonic (composer Jacob Cooper), at HERE Arts Center (The Idiot by Robert Lyons and Kristin Marting), and the Spoleto Festival USA (The Little Match Girl, a collaboration with puppeteer Mark Down and director Phelim McDermott). Beyond the stage, Fry’s work ranges from fine art—teaming up with French artist Julien Previeux’s project What Shall We Do Next (winner of the Prix Marcel Duchamp)—to film and television, most recently designing costumes for a 1960s-era television pilot, The Picture (directed by David Winkler). Fry’s work has been shown at The Public Theater, NY City Center, Grand Palais Paris, 3LD, La Mama, REDCAT, Prototype Opera Festival, The Bootleg Theater, Honor Fraser gallery, Prague Quadrennial, and the Tribeca Film Festival. She received her M.F.A. from the California Institute of the Arts.
