is a director who trained at Goldsmiths College, London and UNATC Bucharest. Her action-research looks at the possibilities of art democratization and the extension of participative forms into reality. She works on subjects related to the behaviors of turbo-capitalism, employing techniques from theatre, technology and the social sciences to challenge the presumably permanent aspects of reality. Her recent actions confront contemporary dystopias and imagine situations in which the participants end up negotiating attitudes and policies of co-existence. Since 2012, Ioana has been working on a visibility platform for the “affection industry,” together with artists, journalists, nannies and housekeepers from Mexico, the Philippines, Romania and Puerto Rico. Foundations and arts institutions across Europe have supported her work, including Theatre Royal Stratford East, Museum for the Arts of the 21st Century/MAXXI in Rome, Medeea Electronique and The Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens, the Romanian National Cultural Fund Administration and The Schaubühne Theater in Berlin. Her performances have been produced in Palestine, the US, the UK, France, Austria, Romania, Czech Republic, Greece, Germany, Sweden and Italy.
