Nina Bade is originally from a small town in Central Germany. She did her bachelor studies in Theatre science and Art History in Leipzig and completed her studies with the Masters programme Staging the Arts and Media in Hildesheim. After having worked in the dramaturgy of Festival Ruhrtriennale under the Artistic Direction of Barbara Frey 2021-23, she now lives and works in Hamburg as a freelance dramaturg. Her artistic interest mostly comes from biographical contents and her approach is documentary. Her artistic process is driven by her interest in people, building connections with former strangers and her curiosity about their view on the world and what we have in common.
We'll be sharing more details about their creative plans and upcoming projects in due course and look forward to welcoming Bea and Nina to Sofia!
