Samara Hersch

The theater maker Samara Hersch divides her time between the Netherlands and Naarm (Melbourne). In her artistic practice contemporary performance intersects with social engagement. She devises formats in which non-professional performers and audiences encounter each other in unlikely and intimate settings. With works such as ‘Sex and Death’ (2016), ‘We All Know What’s Happening’ (2018) and ‘Body of Knowledge’ (2019), she has been focusing on intergenerational exchange. Hersch studied at DAS Theater in Amsterdam and is currently Artist in Residence at the production house Theater Rotterdam.
