Biography for Mirenka Cechova

Mirenka Cechova is a Fulbright doctoral student in residence at American University where she is teaching as an adjunct faculty member. She has completed two MA degrees at the Academy of Performing Arts (AMU) in Prague, one in the Department of Nonverbal Theatre and the second in the Department of Alternative Theatre. She is completing her PhD at the Academy, focusing on directing physical theatre and mime.

In Prague, Ms. Cechova founded Teatro Pantomissimo and Spitfire Company, professional acting ensembles that focus on experimental and visual theatre. Both groups have performed throughout Europe in Germany, Poland, Italy, Bulgaria, Hungary, and in Israel. Her companies have received important distinctions, including the Grand Prix at the Festival Zdarzenia in Poland, The Price of Teatro Roma festival, and the Theater News award. She has taught in the Czech Republic, Germany and Poland.

As a director, choreographer and performer, Ms. Cechova's emphasis is on new acting approaches that connect inner impulses and a strong inner visualization that translates images from the unconscious, using expressive physical technique.
