    Reviews:

    'Katharine Hurst is an actress who exudes charisma, intelligence and poise'

    (Kansas City Star on Mata Hari 2015)

    'Playing exquisitely to her strengths, the piece combines the choreography of dance, in which Hurst exhibits a fluidity that is hypnotic'

    (5 Stars - TV Bomb on Mata Hari 2015)

    Katharine Hurst is an excellent performer and is able to bring us Mata Hari and hold that character fully and believably throughout. Hurst offers us an incredibly precise performance and that precision is to be found right down to the ends of her fingertips.

    (Fringe Review on Mata Hari 2015)

    'Hurst is astonishingly versatile - warm and concerned as a worried mother, delicious as a conning French showman and crisp and cruel as a doctor bent on experiment.'

    (The Stage on Woyzeck 2013)

    'Katharine Hurst is a one woman whirlwind, using voice, mime, movement and humour to tell this most bleak of tales...I watched in awe.'

    (Ink Pellet on Metamorphosis 2011 - 2012)

    'A brittle, rhythmic, grotesquely and comically exaggerated Mrs Samsa...Outstanding' (The Stage on Metamorphosis 2011-2012)

    'The three-strong cast miraculously conjured up two separate crews and gave a masterclass in presenting a lot of action in a little space... impressive storytellers and a rare kind of magic.' (The Stage on Vampirates, 2011)

    But leading the performance was Katharine Hurst, whose energy and enthralling range of unique characters, including a sadistic lunatic doctor and a General Blimp-like officer, gave a glowing performance. The enigmatic acting, innovative ideas, including the particularly effective use of a mini Woyzeck puppet and the witty script, made the show nothing short of inspired.

    (Isle of Wight Press on Woyzeck 2010)

    'Provocative, intriguing and sensitively done.'

    (Three Weeks on The Other Side, Edinburgh 2009)

    'Hurst's performance will move you to the edge of your seat, to feelings of guilt and to tears.'

    (Allthefestivals.com on The Other Side, Edinburgh 2009)

    'Katharine Hurst is a fine actor who chillingly combines hilarity with horror.' (The Stage on Fear and Misery of the Third Reich 2008)

    About me

    Ranging from playing physical, dynamic comic characters

    to 'engaging smiley mum'

    Described as having 'funny bones' on more than one occasion.

    Very relaxed, friendly and warm energy on set.

    Natural, spirited performer and keen ensemble player.

    Experienced in devising and collaborating with actors, directors and theatre companies to make slick, fast paced physical theatre

    Work frequently with Scene Productions Physical Theatre Company.

    Worked in Association with South Hill Park and Redbridge Drama Centre Park to develop a promenade, Community production of OH WHAT A LOVELY WAR in 2014.
