Dr Kate Hunter is a theatre-maker and researcher based in Melbourne, Australia.

Recent works include the sound-based work 'Sonic Shoebox' (La Mama Theatre, 2021), 'Earshot' (FoLA 2016, 45downstairs 2017; Due West 2019) and 'Memorandum' (Theatreworks, Melbourne, 2014: JSPAC ‘Brave New Work’ series, Sydney, 2015). Works in development include In Perpetuity: a piece for actors, prepared harpsichord and disembodied voices, which has been supported by an Art in Biomedical Science residency at the Harry Brookes Museum of Anatomy and Pathology. Kate is currently Senior Lecturer in Art and Performance at Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia.
