Her work has been invited to festivals such as the Heidelberger Stückemarkt, the Autorentheatertage in Berlin, and the Mülheimer Theatertage. Carina’s recent projects include an experimental film entitled zebra, a theatre production on climate change in close cooperation with scientists, activists, and Eco-Social Design students, and several performance projects based on texts by Fiston Mwanza Mujila: Tram 83 at a club in Mannheim for Nationaltheater, Fluss im Bauch // Fleuve dans le ventre, an interdisciplinary, international co-production rehearsed in the Democratic Republic of Congo with shows in Kinshasa and Europe, and the writer’s most recent play, Garten der Lüste.
