Based in London & Glasgow
Founded in 2018 by Catriona Smith, Mini Schmidt Productions aims to create work on what she feels society around her needs to hear most about. She takes her inspiration from current political and social issues, looking at the psychology of humanity. Her projects are presented in a range of verbatim multi medias. The objective is to change minds, create needed discussions, to bring comfort and positivity and to unify one piece at a time.
Previous work includes: Heartbreak Hotel (supported using public funding by Arts Council England), LoveFestLDN18 and EU & I.
As a performer, Catriona recently played Maud in Maud Gonne Nuts, a short film by Rosie Roberts, that was sponsored by Kodak and premiered at the CCA.
In her spare time, she works freelance as an Event Manager & Producer.
Catriona will be performing at the Inn Deep Poetry evening on Tuesday 17th & at Soul Food Poetry on October 9th in Glasgow.
She is currently in the process of writing a one woman show, looking at what it means to truly live a fulfilled life. Her introduction to this was chosen as Editor’s Pick for April 2019 of The John Byrne Award. She will take up the Artists Spare Room Residency at Eden Arts to work on devising this piece at the start pf 2020.
