Solveig Gade



In 2008 I completed my Ph.D. on interventionist strategies in contemporary theatre and visual art at the University of Copenhagen. Subsequently I served as a dramaturge at the Danish Royal Theatre (between 2008 and 2014), where I collaborated with directors and companies such as Christoph Marthaler, Michael Thalheimer, Elisa Kragerup & Det Røde Rum, Christian Lollike & the dance company Corpus, and Nielsen.  Reumert awarded performances include The Sorrows of Young Werther (2010), Metamorphoses (2014), and In Contact (2014).    

Extending on my postdoctoral research I am currently working on re-contextualizations of images of war and conflict in contemporary theatre, dance and visual art and the ways in which artistic practices seek to probe, challenge and re-imagine the status of the visual document and in a larger sense the logics of image warfare. Concurrently, I am affiliated with two collective research projects, Images of Conflict – Conflicting Images (2017-2021) and The Aesthetics of War (2018-2022), both funded by the Velux Foundation.

I am author of the monograph Intervention & Kunst: politisk og socialt engagement i samtidskunsten (politisk revy, 2010), and my work on interventionist dramaturgies and artistic representations of war and conflict has been published in journals such as Performance Research (forthcoming), TDR/The Drama Review, The Journal of War and Culture Studies, Diffractions, Peripeti, Kritik and K&K. I serve on the advisory editorial board of Performance Research, the executive commitee of EASTAP: European Association for the Study of Theatre and Performance, and the board of the Danish journal Peripeti.

I teach subjects in Drama analysis, Performance analysis, Applied Dramaturgy, and Theatre and performance Theory.
