Born 1991 in Buenos Aires/Argentinia.

Giuliana Kiersz’ writing operates through a combination of personal and territorial investigations. She trained as a dramaturg in the Metropolitan School of Dramatic Arts in Buenos Aires (2012) and was invited into the Royal Court Theater’s International Playwrights Program in Latin America.

Her work El fin (The end) won first place in the X Germán Rozenmacher Prize and was produced by the Buenos Aires International Festival in 2019. In 2015, Isabel I received third prize in the National Theatre Institute’s 15th competition, whose editorial published the work in 2016.

Her texts have been performed in Argentina, France, and Mexico. The book Lucas blancas intermitentes (Intermittent white lights) (2018), published by Rara Avis Editorial, contains her works 502, B, and El día que ella dijo que había matado al perro agarré el auto (The day she said she had killed the dog I grabbed the car). She has given workshops and literary talks in Argentina, Spain, Mexico, Uruguay, and Chile. In 2018, she received a grant from the Argentinian Cultural Secretary to create Manifestaciones (Demonstrations), a project exploring the relationships between political and artistic demonstrations.
