Filmmaker Screen Writer Movement Director

Filmmaker Screen Writer Movement Director

A creative polymath. As a filmmaker, artistic director, screenwriter and choreographer, Litza has produced work on stage, screen, mountains and galleries.  With a keen eye for visual spectacle and a knack for comedy and emotional nuance, Litza’s work is embodied, quirky and distinctive. She has choreographed some of the most iconic scenes in film and produced live pieces, screenplays and paintings.

Themes: Litza creates absurd, darkly comic worlds populated by fairies, fallen angels, cowgirls, lonely aliens, talking birds, witches and water-sucking vampires. Her writing is embodied, visceral and set in visually evocative spaces, from desolate landscapes and crumbling rooms, to musical alternate realities, sinking ships and flying cities. In these worlds, her characters transform and move, they travel through wormholes, they fly and they fall, they drown in oceans and they disintegrate into dust. Litza is a dual national and often explores liminal spaces, thresholds and metaphorical journeys in her work.

A storyteller and screenwriter: Litza is interested in how and why we tell stories, and how these stories influence the world around us. She believes that a good story shows us the world as it is, as well as how it could be.  She has always been curious about human psychology and loves building interesting worlds and asking challenging questions.
