After moving from Vienna to Turin in 2001, besides acting I started working on dramaturgy and stage direction, both for opera and theatre. From 2002 to 2008 I’ve been Hausdramaturgin of co-founded CineTeatro Baretti in Turin, focusing on multiculturality and music-theatre. Afterwards I collaborated with Association 15febbraio and from 2009 to 2015 I led together with author (and husband) Luigi Chiarella – aka yamunin – the association Satyrikon, focusing on contemporary drama and cross-over of arts.

In all these years, while planning seasons or events or working on single projects, I wrote and translated into Italian several plays, above all translated authors standing out Nobel Price Elfriede Jelinek, whose texts of course I’ve been also playing on stage.

Here below is a gallery with some theatre projects followed by an archive of activities and a bibliography of published or staged texts. On the bottom of the page you’ll find pictures from some opera settings, too.
