Self-proclaimed ‘hot-mess’ Katy Baird brings the London premiere of her latest work Get Off to Battersea Arts Centre this May. Following on from Katy’s highly successful debut Workshy, which looked at work and the things we do for money, Get Off continues Katy’s frank, poignant and uproarious take on the human condition. 

An honest and raw interrogation into our need for distraction, Get Off is an acutely personal one-woman show about excess and consumption, raising essential questions about the autonomy we possess in choosing where and how we seek fulfilment. From Katy’s trademark humorous perspective, she unveils her journey into the ‘pursuit of pleasure’, as audiences experience an evening that challenges and aims to bring us all closer together.  


Since premiering at Transform Festival, Leeds in 2023, the show has been in development ahead of a two-day run at CAMPO in Ghent in April before making its London premiere at Battersea Arts Centre for three weeks (8-25 May). The show will go on to tour in Hastings, Colchester and Norwich this Autumn.

Katy Baird is an artist and curator who has performed at festivals and venues across Europe as well as squat parties, clubs and raves. She says of her work; “My practice is centred around a desire to create a shared space that can be both welcoming and radical. My work explores ideas around class, gender and sexuality. It can take the form of cabaret, theatre, intervention, film or participatory performance. I enjoy using my body to create a space that questions, pokes and prods current dominant narratives on what is ‘acceptable behaviour’.
