"Performing Space" Workshop and Presentation

"Performing Space" Workshop and Presentation

Belgrade-based theatre director Jadranka Andjelic and scenographer Antonella Diana are to lead a week-long workshop in Wellington, 24-28 July, exploring the interaction between the performer and the performance space. The workshop culminates with a public presentation and discussion with the artists, at 7pm on Friday 28th, at Thistle Hall; everyone is welcome and entry is koha/donation.

Where does the space end and the performer begin? How do the two communicate? How can the scenography become alive and the actor become part of the scenography?

The workshop is for artists involved in any aspect of theatre-making, from performing to directing and designing. Places are still available, phone (04) 934 9605 or email

Jadranka Andjelic is a founding director of DAH Theatre Research Centre (Belgrade, Serbia), and Antonella Diana has worked for more than twenty years as a graphic designer, scenographer, painter and mask-maker in Italy, Denmark and Serbia. Further information about Jadranka and Antonella is available at

Jadranka and Antonella have been collaborating since 1995 on performances with DAH Theatre Research Centre (Serbia), Theatre OM (Denmark) and international projects. They first visited New Zealand in 1999 for the Magdalena Aotearoa International Festival of Women's Performance, and will return to New Zealand after attending the Magdalena Singapore festival, 9-15 July.
