Lena Megyeri, Hungary

Lena Megyeri manages and facilitates independent theatre projects in Hungary. Currently she works as the artistic manager of the Mozsár Műhely theatre space in downtown Budapest. Mozsár Műhely is a 100-seat venue that opened in 2016 in the former event space of a café, and since then it has commissioned about 6-7 new works in every theatre season. The managing team’s goal and mission is to support contemporary plays, independent artists and emerging talent.

Lena’s passion for performance is also reflected in her writing: she has published in most major Hungarian dance and theatre magazines. Currently she is a regular contributor to the printed periodical Ellenfény, the online dance magazine Tanckritika and participating in the mentoring programme of Színház (Theatre), one of Hungary’s oldest and most renowned theatre journals.
