Work-shy by Katy Baird

Deciding on a career is never easy.

Is it best to follow your dreams or to be practical?


My granddad was hired out to dig the fields from the age of twelve. As a teenager he dug ditches before working in the steelworks, shovelling coal into a furnace.


I am a team player, who is adept at managing multiple projects

simultaneously while maintaining composure and a sense of humour.


This is a show about work. Some people work to earn money, some work to feel fulfilled, some people don¹t work at all and some people run away and join the circus.


Katy Baird is a London-based artist and activist who often finds herself in uncomfortable situations of her own making. Her solo work is intimate and autobiographical, reflecting on gender, class and sexuality. She has performed at festivals and venues such as The Arches, The Yard, The Basement, Cruising for Art and BUZZCUT as well as squat parties, clubs and raves.
