Emma Rice, Poppy Keeling, Daria Bukvić, Vera Morina, Martijn de Rijk

In this Artist to Artist, director Emma Rice and producer Poppy Keeling discuss their artistic practices with the Dutch director Daria Bukvić and writer Vera Morina.

And what role do director, writer and producer play in the creative process? The discussion will be guided by moderator Martijn de Rijk and there will be a brief opportunity for the audience to ask questions.

Artistic director and director Daria Bukvić (Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina, 1989) makes social engagement a prerequisite for her work. Through humour and beauty, she confronts the audience with burning issues that hold our society in its grip. So that the audience leaves the room activated, imbued with their humanity and responsibility for the world we live in. Bukvić's performances are both radical adaptations and new texts, linguistically, musically and in the here and now. She is known for successful crowd-pleasers such as Nobody Home, Othello, Milk & Dates, Midsummer Night's Dream and Girls & Boys (for which Hadewych Minis won a Theo d'Or in 2022). Besides her work as a theatre director, Bukvić is known for directing the cinema hit Meskina and is creative producer of the television series Zina on NPO 3.

Vera Morina (born 1995) is a Dutch-Cosovar writer of drama, scenario and poetry. In 2019, she graduated from the Writing for Performance programme at HKU. Since graduating, she has been writing for Frascati Productions, Theater Bellevue, Likeminds and Theater Oostpool, among others. She took part in the Slow Writing Lab V writing project at the Dutch Foundation for Literature and received the YAA award. Themes that frequently recur in her work are origin, identity, sexuality and family. For Theater Oostpool, she made an adaptation (and 'translation' into modern Dutch) of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream.
