Sodja Zupanc Lotker

Sodja Zupanc Lotker is the Course Leader of Master in Directing Devised and Object Theatre at the Prague Performing Arts Academy (DAMU). She works as a dramaturg for independent theatre, dance and site specific projects (with Cristina Maldonado, Farm in the Cave, Lotte van den Berg, TAAT, Wojtek Ziemilski). She was artistic director of the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space 2008 – 2015.

The Research of Performative Processes invited Sodja Lotker to conduct part of her research into dramaturgy of devised theatre at HKU Theatre. She will be collaborating with students of the MA scenography, and conducting interviews with Dutch theatre makers. Devised theatre challenges traditional and/or authorial theatre since this type of dramaturgy is usually made collectively by the whole creative team, often including audiences.
