Martina Kartelo has BA in economy, BA in theatre acting and MA in performing arts. She was born in Split, Croatia. She has been studying in USA, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Belgium, France and Denmark. During her theatre studies and some time after she finished her BA in theatre acting she was taking part and performing in classical and experimental theatre productions. Since she finished her MA degree in 2011 she is travelling and working mostly in Europe and combining solo and collaborative projects where she combines theatre, anthropology, sociology and philosophy.
One of her focuses in theatre is if and how theater can "cure" society. She has attended many International projects, trainings and workshops.
