Bojana Cvejic is performance theorist and maker, working in contemporary dance and performance also as dramaturge and performer. She studied musicology and aesthetics at the Faculty of Music in Belgrade (MA Beyond the Musical Work: Performative practice), and recently defended her PhD on dance and performance cum laude, at the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP) at Middlesex University in London.
Since 2000, Bojana has been based in Brussels, where she has developed a theater practice with Jan Ritsema in a number of performances since 1999 (a.o. TODAYulysses, 2000). As dramaturge, she has been collaborating with a number of European choreographers, amongst others Xavier Le Roy, Eszter Salamon and Mette Ingvartsen. Her own performance work includes directing five experimental opera performances, most recently Mozart’s Don Giovanni (BITEF, Belgrade, 2008).
Cvejic has been teaching performance theory and history in P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. She also has been active in public talks, lectures and teaching in a number of other European educational programmes. She organized independent platforms for theory and practice in performance: TkH Centar (Walking Theory Center in Belgrade), PAF (performingARTSforum in St. Erme, France) and most recently 6MONTHS1LOCATION (CCN in Montpellier).
Her research interests range from contemporary dance, music theater to experimental performative formats, from continental contemporary philosophy to speculative pragmatism.
