ANTONIA GEORGIEVA

Artistic Director

Antonia Georgieva is an international director, producer, playwright, and founder of Aslant Theatre Company currently based in London. She began her training in theatre 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 is completing a dissertation on contemporary approaches to adaptation in theatre.

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.
