Kate Digby is a choreographer, director and performer who led Digby Dance for 10 years, choreographing over 30 original works that were performed across the U.S., in Canada and India with support from the LEF Foundation, the Puffin Foundation, the Putnam Foundation and the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts.
Digby’s current research involves the creation and presentation of original interdisciplinary performance works which integrate biosensing technology for the purpose of enhancing human connection.

In 2016, Digby and her collaborators hosted the Movement and Emotion as Computational Interfaces Workshop at York University in Toronto.
