Bogna, born in Gdańsk and based in Berlin, is an internationally renowned stage designer with a twist. Her work bridges the worlds of performing arts and empowerment, drawing inspirations from diverse landscapes like Auroville and Bali.
Her credentials include the notable International ‘Social Art Award 2019’, demonstrating her commitment to using art as a tool for social change. In 2020, her TEDx talk shed light on the role of art in transforming marginalized communities, emphasizing participation and visibility.
Bogna’s deep understanding of theater, backed by her expertise as a Drama and Performance Scientist and Germanist, gives her work a distinct dramaturgical edge. Over the past decade, her projects have extended to countries like India, Indonesia, and South Africa, culminating in her current endeavor: establishing the NGO Masterpiece for Good to further these cross-cultural collaborations.
Since moving to Berlin in 2003, Bogna has contributed to both independent and mainstream theatrical venues. Her portfolio ranges from TAK Theater, Uferstudios to the Volksbühne Berlin, Staatsoper Unter den Linden and Deutsche Oper Berlin.
Bogna’s art, though inspired by Joseph Beuys’ “Social Sculpture,” carries a distinct personal flair. This signature approach often lands her invitations to run workshops and projects at art schools, institutions, and festivals, or being invited as an expert and speaker at conferences.
