ildiko nemeth - director
ILDIKO NEMETH is the Founder and Artistic Director of the New Stage Theatre Company (NSTC), and the visionary force behind all its premieres. Originally from Hungary, she graduated from the Actor’s Studio Drama School in 2002 and immediately founded NSTC.
Nemeth adapts foreign writers’ works for New York premieres, and creates original pieces with her ensemble. Her works have won accolades for their bold, provocative effect, achieved by juxtaposing complex, difficult themes with physical and absurdist humor. Under her leadership, the company has distinguished itself as “daring experimental group” (Backstage) with a “unique theatrical vision that creates wonder for mature sophisticated audiences” (NY Theatre Wire).
Nemeth received the 2015 IT Award for Outstanding Performance Art Production and the 2016 Caffe Cino Fellowship. In 2017 she established The New Stage Performance Space, where she continues to support the creation of boundary-defying productions that engage artists from a host of disciplines.
