Bojan Djordjev is performance maker from Belgrade, educated in theatre and art theory in Belgrade at Faculty of Drama/University of Arts and Amsterdam at DasArts. Apart from Belgrade, his works have been shown in Berlin, Brussels, Amsterdam, New York, Shanghai, Vienna, Zurich, Zagreb, Rijeka, Ljubljana… Directing credits include performances based on: H. Guibert, E. Jelinek, J. Joyce, G. Ferčec, I. Sajko, and three operas including Les enfants terribles by J. Cocteau/P. Glass.

He is a member of editorial collective and co-founder of TkH (Walking Theory) platform and Journal for Performing Arts Theory. As an artist he is interested in using theatre as a place for collective thinking, a machine for processing complicated discoursive propositions such as economy, art history, politics and critical theory. His recent works revolve around finding artistic and theatrical public formats for Marxist thought as well as research into artistic heritage of the Left in Yugoslavia and elsewhere. In spring of 2016 he took a trip to Buenos Aires on a cargo ship in order to study intricate choreography of world trade which resulted in the piece Said to contain: a collaboration with Maja Leo, Laura Kalauz et.al.
