Profile

Tania El Khoury creates interactive and immersive installations and performances that reflect on the production of collective memory and the cultivation of solidarity. Her work is activated by tactile, auditory and visual traces collected and curated by the artist and her collaborators, and they are ultimately transformed through audience interaction.

Tania’s work has been translated to multiple languages and shown in 33 countries across 6 continents in spaces ranging from museums to cable cars. She is the recipient of the Herb Alpert Award, the Soros Art Fellowship, the Bessies Outstanding Production Award, the International Live Art Prize, the Total Theatre Innovation Award, and the Arches Brick Award.

Tania is a Distinguished Artist in Residence at the Theater and Performance Program at Bard College. She holds a PhD in Theater Studies from Royal Holloway, University of London. Tania has presented work in spaces ranging from national museums to small boats in the Mediterranean Sea. Her solo work has toured several international festivals. She is co-founder of Dictaphone Group, a collective using urban research and live art in order to reclaim public space.
