Catinca Drăgănescu is a Romanian theatre director and playwright. She also has a degree in advertising and public relations and a PhD at the I.L. Caragiale University in Bucharest. Her work consists of different interdisciplinary creative research platforms focused around sensitive social and political themes. Her performances use game structures in order to offer audiences an experience that actively engages them in a dialogue. She uses movement and stillness as tools of increasing tension and emotional impact.
In 2010, together with a group of artists, she founded a cultural NGO and since then they have become involved in community projects, social interventions and hybrid art that use creative work as a tool for empowering the counter-narrative of underrepresented social categories.
