Tea Tupajić to partake artist-in–residence program in Berlin

place: Berlin, Germany
organiser: Student Centre
Theatre director Tea Tupajić partakes from 9 to 22 December in the programme of the international research residence at Tanzfabrik Berlin (APAP Production Studio) within the project by Culture of Change – Student Centre titled APAP – Performative Europe.

Tupajić is currently working on her new stage production Variete Europe and within the project she wants to explore the identity of what we know today as Europe by bringing on the stage people from everyday life that resemble the characters from the European mythology  or the history of art.

The performance deals with the European identity as we know nowadays and through improvised situations and tasks performers are delving into characters in order to explore myths that are creating our lives.

Tea Tupajić was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 2003 she entered the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Zagreb, in the department of directing and radio art, which is she now finishing. As part of Borut Šeparović’s workshop (HR/NL DasArts) she created the solo multimedia performance, Moment. In 2007, she received a scholarship to spend the autumn semester at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, in the USA. She has collaborated on Branko Gavella projects, as part of the Eurokaz festival, and with Jan Ritsemm on the performance Oedipus revisited, which premiered in 2010 in the Kaaitheater, Bruxelles. Published in the magazine Frakcija, in 2009 she received a grant from Tanzquartier, Vienna.
