The starting point of Ismaili’s research was a revisiting of their times before and after the 1999 war in their native Kosovo. By exploring various facets of their identity, Ismaili produces a provocative piece that puts to question aspects of humanity.
I am a performance maker operating between theatre and visual arts. My working practice involves writing, composing music, performing, drawing and directing. Identity and body politics are subjects that I am naturally confronted with in my everyday reality. I use art as a medium to express my viewpoints and create platforms that bring people together.
Astrit Ismaili is an alumnus of Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten - Academie voor Theater en Dans - DAS Theatre.
