Katrin Redfern


Katrin produces film (two Sundance Festival Official Selections), theater (five Tony Award nominations), photography, radio, and podcasts, from science reporting to writing and directing audio drama. She writes about politics, anthropology, and conservation among other things, and her plays have been produced in New York and Berlin. The daughter of two world travelers, she bridges multiple nationalities and loves exploring—she has studied wilderness skills with some of the best survivalists on the planet, hunted with hunter-gatherers in Tanzania, run with the bulls in San Miguel, hiked the red heart of Australia, uncovered illegal detention centers in Cambodia, and organized internationally for migrant and worker rights. She currently lives between the Hudson Valley and Brooklyn, where she is the Co-founder and Creative Director of Brooklyn Soundstages and Be Electric Studios. Katrin holds a BA from the Institute for Social Ecology, an MA from the University of Sussex, and an MSc from the London School of Economics. Currently she is enjoying work as a researcher at the American Museum of Natural History. Katrin is a 2019 Felipe P. De Alba Fellow at Columbia University and Visiting Fellow at the Institute of Intellectual History at the University of St Andrews.
