Markella Syrri

Markella is a Greek Dramaturg and Theatre maker. She holds a postgraduate degree in Dramaturgy and Playwriting and has participated in different devised projects along with working in backstage theatre. She collaborates with emerging playwrights in the development of original scripts. She is interested in work that explores the complexity of identity and culturally specific writing that challenges the audience’s perspective. As a non English speaker she finds the possibility of creating new linguistic codes and dialects for the UK stage fascinating.

Markella’s question: How do we support writers to speak their own language? How do we curate the space for culturally specific and polyglot work?
