About The Event
We are proud to partner with EUNIC Washington, D.C., and the Laboratory for Global Performance & Politics of Georgetown University for the European Theater Residency, a part of CrossCurrents (May 5-11, 2019), Washington’s biennial festival that highlights innovative artists from around the world who are harnessing the power of performance to humanize global politics.
Romanian playwright and theater director Ana Mărgineanu joins 6 artists from Austria, Bosnia/Sweden, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, and Spain for a week of intense creative exchanges under the leadership of The Lab’s co-director, Derek Goldman.
If in D.C. on May 6, don’t miss the “Meet & Greet” Discussion with this ultra-creative bunch at the House of Sweden. The other European participants are Anna Dora Dorno, Philip Ehmann, Alexander Karschnia, Natálie Kocábová, Mersiha Mesihovic, and Lucia Miranda.
Ana Mărgineanu is a theatre director of Romanian origin who works both nationally and internationally. She graduated from The National University of Theatre and Film of Bucharest, Romania. She is co-founder of PopUp Theatrics, a partnership creating immersive theatrical events around the world, a past resident of Women’s Project Theater, LaGuardia Performing Arts Center and an alumnus of The Lincoln Center Directors Lab. Her work has been presented and developed at the Working Theater, Urban Stages, NYTW, The Lark, Ensemble Studio Theater, The Secret Theatre, The Public Theatre and in numerous theaters and festivals in Europe, most notably: New Plays from Europe Wiesbaden, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, National Theatre Festival Bucharest, Sibiu International Theatre Festival. Her recent projects include: The Female Role Model Project at 3-Legged-Dog Art and Technology Center NYC; The Vanished Year Trilogy at Mic Theatre Bucharest and The Museum of Lies, an immersive party game for 24 audience members, created by PopUP Theatrics.
Called “one of the reigning queens of New York's highly intimate, one-shot-only, conceptual-based theater” by the NYC critic Randy Gener, Ana Mărgineanu is known for close cooperation with the local communities who are audiences for her work, highly metaphoric visual style, and ability to draw raw, visceral performances from her actors.
