Although she is still a Theatre Directing student in Cluj-Napoca, Irisz Kovacs is trying to incorporate a sort of bodily translation of meaning in any scene or exercise she directs, and to visualise movement in her work as a photographer also. Her last directing exam was a (very) free adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slapstick, set in a kids’ pool, filled with warm water and green apples, a sort of theatrical poem illustrated through the body’s contact with water. Last year, she created a domestic performance called “Casting Call”, where she invited strangers for a night at her house, to be interviewed in the position of her friend. After that, she directed a one-man-show in Bucharest, based on the story of Daniel Keyes’ Flowers for Algernon, a very physically- demanding, almost acrobatic approach of a touching story. Right now, she is directing an all-girl adaptation of “Medea” by Euripies.
