Kim Katzberg is a Brooklyn-based NYIT Award winning writer and performer who has been creating genre-bending, darkly comedic multimedia theatrical works since 2010. In 2011, Katzberg’s breakout solo show Penetrating the Space at HERE, was the life-changing endeavor that gave her a place within the theater world. The New York Times wrote, “Penetrating the Space has a glowing, vulnerable, haunting center.” Katzberg has performed original work at the Bushwick Starr in Catch Performance Series, Dead Darlings at Judson Memorial Church, Showgasm at Ars Nova, The Upstart Program at BAX and in Little Theatre at Dixon Place. Katzberg’s solo show for two actors, Strays, premiered in 2016 at The Brick Theater as Artist-In-Residence and won the 2016 NYIT Award for “Outstanding Original Short Script.” Strays is published in The Best American Short Plays, 2015-2016. Katzberg’s performance of Dad in a Box at HERE won the 2019 NYIT Award for “Outstanding Solo Performance” and was nominated for “Outstanding Original Short Script” and “Outstanding Innovative Design.” Katzberg became a member of Actors' Equity Association in 2021 after performing a lead role in the site-specific off-off-Broadway play Repulsing the Monkey directed by Daniel Leeman Smith. In January 2022, Katzberg had an online reading at La MaMa of her fifth solo show Whole K-Hole. During her 2022 residency at Wild Project, Katzberg shared two work-in-progress performances of the piece. Like Going to a Hardware Store for Bread, the short film in which Katzberg stars and co-wrote with Roque Nonini who is the director and filmmaker, was an Official Selection of New York Shorts International Film Festival.
