Keren Ida Nathan / Ida Wilde

Ida is a writer and director based in Berlin with a MA in Fine Arts and Undergraduate studies in Philosophy and Literature. Writing and directing for Stage, Film, Dance and the discreet Arts, aligning herself with certain outdated genres, such as operetta, lyric poetry, Jacobean passion plays, plein-air painting and pamphleteering. Her work is intersectional, centered around storytelling as a form. She focuses on social behavior, radical communality and queer femme identity, which began with her daily practice of historical female drag, as Ida Wilde. In addition she has long been experimenting with collective forms of working structures in the arts, transparency in organization and sustainability.
