3rd Gilder/Coigney International Theatre Award

honoring ADELHEID ROOSEN

Co-presented with the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center

ADELHEID ROOSEN’s work is best described as multidimensional social sculpture. Utilizing primarily theatrical methods, she creates performances and installations in places of great social vulnerability. Roosen’s work combines theatrical practice with a deep connection to community. Her ‘adoption technique’, in which players and writers are ‘adopted’ by members of refugee and immigrant communities for a two-week period, enable in-depth communication, and an intimate connection to collective life stories. Roosen prioritizes discovering and identifying ‘the other’ at all levels—culturally, geographically, socially, intellectually. She then uses this technique to develop theatrical performance pieces that promote empathy and understanding.

From Dolph Hogewoning, Consul General of the Netherlands/New York: “Over the years, Ms. Roosen has appealed to new audiences and communities, [working] with emerging and diverse voices in the world of performing arts. Her mission to integrate, to connect and become ‘the other’ provides a relevant and unique type of theater that leads by example.”

Roosen was chosen from a group of six finalists: Lina Attel (Jordan), Jalila Baccar (Tunisia), Mihaela Drăgan (Romania), Natalia Kaliada (Belarus), and Jesusa Rodriguez (Mexico). The other 14 nominees are: Abir Aly (Egypt), Sarah Berger (England), Patricia Benecke (Germany), Sabina Berman (Mexico), Kate Cherry (Australia), Drenia Frederick (St. Lucia), Elena Gremina (Russia), Brigitte Helbling (Switzerland), Carmina Narro (Mexico), Julia Pascal (England), Marwa Radwan Mohamed (Egypt), Nan Van Houte (The Netherlands), Ilire Vinca (Kosovo), and Linda Wise (France).

The LPTW Gilder/Coigney International Theatre Award was established in 2011 in honor of Rosamond Gilder and Martha Coigney, two legendary theatre women whose work on the international stage proved that theatre knows no international boundaries. Presented every three years, this Award acknowledges the exceptional work of theatre women around the world and aims to make a difference in the life and career of an international woman theatre artist. Odile Gakire Katese from Rwanda was the inaugural recipient of the G/C Award in 2011. Patricia Ariza from Colombia received the award in 2014.

Mihaela Drăgan, born in 1986, is an actress and playwright who lives and works in Bucharest and Berlin. In 2014, she founds Giuvlipen Theatre Company, a “revolutionary theater” according to Reuters, together with other Roma actresses. Giuvlipen’s performances have a feminist agenda: e.g. Gadjo Dildo which is about the hypersexualization of Roma women by non-Roma men. In 2015, she plays in the feature film Aferim!, directed by Radu Jude, Silver Bear-winning film for directing at the Berlin International Film Festival and, in 2017, is the main character of the short Magie Noir, directed by Fanny Ardant.

She is also a trainer at Theatre of the Oppressed where she works with Roma women on their specific issues. In addition, she has done multiple talks like Producing Roma Feminst Theatre and been a speaker for TEDxEroilor and Creative Mornings. She is currently working in Berlin at Maxim Gorki Theatre.

Mihaela Drăgan is one of the six finalists for The 2017 Gilder/Coigney International Theatre Award from New York, which acknowledges the exceptional work of 20 theatre women around the world.
