Kasia Lech
executive director

Kasia Lech, with a PhD from University College Dublin, is a scholar, actor, storyteller, puppeteer, and Associate Professor at the University of Amsterdam. Her research and creative practice explore theatre through practice-based and traditional scholarship and primarily focus on verse, multilingualism, migration, translation, and transnational experience. Kasia’s monograph Dramaturgy of Form: Verse in Contemporary Theatre (Routledge, 2021) explores verse in twenty-first-century practice across different languages, cultures, and media. Her Multilingual Dramaturgies: Towards New European Theatre (Springer, 2024) features over 60 languages that arise from state, ethnicity, region, and disability to argue for multilingual theatre's central role in Europe’s futures. Kasia published on verse in contemporary performance, theatre translation, multilingual theatre, multilingual actor, European theatre, theatre and animal rights, and puppetry. Kasia trained at the Polish National Academy of Theatre Arts and performed internationally in theatre, television, radio, and film, including starring as the Grey Cat, a puppet that co-hosted the awarded live TV show for children CyberMysz on Polish national television. She co-founded Polish Theatre Ireland, an intercultural and multilingual theatre company based in Dublin. She co-convenes the Translation Adaptation Dramaturgy working group at the International Federation for Theatre Research.
