Negative Vibe Records are extremely proud to announce the signing of Kate Pendry.

Born in London in 1965, resident in Oslo, Norway since 1995.

Since arriving in Norway Pendry has written and produced over fifty pieces for the theatre, many of which have been performed in Europe. She has a reputation as a political and controversial artist because of the red thread of social commentary in the work, and her signature use of dark humor.

She has also produced a series of interactive electronic works both solo and in collaboration, in particular "sense:&less" which used artificial intelligence and virtual reality to create a dramatic theatrical atmosphere. (Awarded Honorary Mention at the Prix Ars Electronica 1996). Other IE pieces have been presented at the Rotterdam DEAF festival, the Istanbul Biennale, the National Theatre, Oslo.

Her play Pornography was nominated for the Ibsen Prize 2009, and her dark drama for teens Erasmus Tyrannus Rex won the Ibsen Prize in 2010.

Sex In The War Zone - her piece on war tourism in the Balkans was awarded the National Performing Arts Hub Theatre Prize 2002. The play performed across Europe including the Cartier Foundation in Paris and the Museum Of Modern Art in Stockholm.

She was a presenter for feminist radio station Radio Orakel in Oslo for 12 years until 2013 and an associate playwright at the Norwegian Centre For New Playwriting (Dramatikkens hus) in Oslo 2013-2017.

Pendry is also an actor with Winter Guests performance ensemble, and a co-founder of the Dunkel Festival art concept (Hamar/Oslo/Fredrikstad) - where original music and theatre works are presented in complete darkness to the audience.

A comperehensive biography of her life and work by Marie Laland Ekeli - Demonologi: Kate Pendrys liv og verk - was published in 2017 by Transit Forlag, and became a Tronsmo number one bestseller.

Human Tsunami: Trump - her documentary film collaboration with Mads Sjøgård Pettersen focuses on the tensions around the inaguration of Donald J Trump (which she and Pettersen attended) and the subsequent demonstrations in DC. It will be released 20th January 2018. (Storyline North Productions).

Kate Pendry will release her debut EP through Negative Vibe Records in 2018.
