Lauren Hart Theatre Maker

Lauren Hart was born in Sheffield, England in 1985. She graduated in 2007 from Central School of Speech and Drama in London where she trained as a performer. Since graduating she has worked professionally in the independent theatre scene around Europe performing her own work and collaborating with other artists. She has performed at various venues and site specific locations in the UK, Germany, Norway, Finland and Greece.

Lauren's work is focused around themes of intimacy, connection and anonymity. She has an ongoing interest in the different types of relationships that can be developed and challenged between the audience and performer. All her work is devised and created from scratch so each performance is unique and tailored made. She specialises in one-to-one performance, audience participation, physical theatre and site-specific theatre.

She moved to Berlin in 2015 and collaborated with Fang Lu on her video art project ‘Ex Lovers’ and performed her one-to-one performance 'This is Mine. What's Yours? At the English Theatre Berlin and Theaterhaus Berlin Mitte. Wrought-Sheffield (one-to-one performance festival, UK) commissioned her to develop and perform a new cross cultural performance 'I'm not (t)here anymore' which uses Skype video call to connect the UK and Germany. The performance was shown as part of the festival in April 2016 in both Berlin and Sheffield.

In September 2016 she was invited to perform 'This is Mine. What's Yours?' at the Pori Theatre Festival in Finland. Following a collaboration with German artist Dara Friedman on her video poetry project one of her poems was shown at the Supportico Lopez gallery in Spring 2017. Her new solo show 'My Head is an Animal' premiered at the English Theatre Berlin in January 2017 and was shown at the Pori Theatre Festival in Finland in September 2017.

She is currently based in Sheffield, UK and works as a Theatre Maker, Performer and Educator. She regularly teaches theatre workshops and community projects for children, young people and adults in particular those at risk of exclusion from mainstream society. She is passionate about creating value through her work whilst contributing towards positive social change using theatre as a tool to inspire and make a fundamental difference to individual lives.
