Eszter Nemethi (b.1987, Budapest) is a theatre maker and researcher based between Cork and Brussels. She is interested in the space between people, contexts and ideas and creating structures (practical, dramaturgical and spatial) that can be activated and inhabited by others. Her work often combines play, pedagogy and reading as methodologies. She explores the relation of public spaces and border zones in the way in which they are sites of the emergence of narratives of communities regarding themselves.
She holds an MA in Social Practice and the Creative Environment (LSAD) and she is a graduate of the a.pass (advanced performance and scenography studies) post-master research programme in Brussels. From ’15-’19 she was the curator of Quarter Block Party’s public art strand and she is the co-curator of MOTA nomadic conversations in Brussels. In recent years her work was presented at Kanal-Centre Pompidou (BE), De Markten, Cork Midsummer Festival, Spare Room, Dublin Fringe Festival, Galway Arts Centre, Pallas Project/Studios, North Main Street, different Irish Pediatric wards and strange fields in Brussels.
She is currently developing a radio-theatre work Speak Like No One in Particular about the politics of listening and Mythmaker an intergenerational card-game about the future.
