Eva von Schweinitz

Eva is an interdisciplinary theater artist and filmmaker whose work combines performance, media, and storytelling. She was born in Germany and has lived in the United States since 2008, but never got rid of her accent. Her films, both documentary and narrative, have screened at festivals including Tribeca Film Festival, Palm Springs International ShortFest, International Short Film Festival Oberhausen and others around the world. Eva is fascinated with the boundary between the analog and the digital, and between the fictional and the real. Her work often invites the audience to apply their own imagination, making them active parts of the storytelling process. As a video and sound designer, Eva has worked with New York theater companies and artists including Elevator Repair Service, Sibyl Kempson, Eliza Bent, Sarah Hughes, and Superhero Clubhouse. Further, Eva has worked as a movie projectionist for about 15 years. When you turn around in your seat at the movie theater and look back to where the image on the screen is coming from, that's where she is, up in the booth, pushing buttons and threading up the film in the projector. Eva is excited to join the GIA faculty this year!   www.brainhurricano.org
