ASLANT THEATRE COMPANY
Aslant Theatre Company is a female-led collective producing new work and imaginative adaptations of the classical repertoire. We provide a platform for re-telling and remembering the stories of the past using an eclectic and provocative range of practices.
We are conscious of who gets to speak and tell stories, especially in literature or on stage, and we aim to give a voice to those who are or have been historically “aslant.” We are asking ourselves how can we flip the dominant narrative, tell the untold stories of the past, examine the overlooked points of view, and retell the classics in a different way.
Antonia Georgieva is a director, playwright, and founder of Aslant Theatre Company. She began her training as a director during her BA at Columbia University in New York. She was the recipient of the Austin E. Quigley Award for Theatre and the Seymour Brick Award for Playwriting and graduated Cum Laude in 2018. She then pursued an MFA in Advanced Theatre Practice at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, where she trained with practitioners like Anne Bogart (SITI Company), Ben Kidd (Dead Centre), Amit Levy (Frantic Assembly), Tom Hughes, and Lucy McCormick.
Antonia specializes in new writing and adaptations of the classical repertoire and is particularly passionate about telling women's stories. She has worked on a variety of productions for both theatrical and non-theatrical spaces involving a wide range of production sizes – from directing one-woman shows to heading a site-specific production of Hamlet. In her devised work she often tackles issues of representation and equality.
She is also a member of the London-based theatre company 'PUNKT Collective.
