Katie Gould has been living and working as a theater maker, personal trainer and yoga instructor for eight years. Since graduating from the Pig Iron School she formed Lightning Rod Special, with fellow APT alumni Alice Yorke, Scott Sheppard, Jenn Kidwell and their friend and collaborator Mason Rosenthal. Together they have made four wild, and daring pieces of theater influenced and inspired by their Pig Iron training. In the fall of 2015 and spring of 2016 LRS had the pleasure of collaborating with Strange Attractor on Sans Everything, which was presented in New Orleans, Providence and Charlestown and will come to Philadelphia in the spring of 2017. When not in the studio, Katie is coaching or training herself in kettlebells, barbells and alignment-based Yoga. She is training to compete in the Strong First Tactical Strength Challenge and in the SF Ironmaiden.
