Panni Néder studied directing at the University for Theater and Film Budapest. During her studies, she spent two years interning at the largest theater in Budapest, where her thesis project is still being performed five-and-a-half years later. She moved to Berlin in 2011 and served as a directing intern multiple times at Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz on productions directed by Thomas Ostermeier and Alvis Hermanis. She studied directing as a DAAD guest student at the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts from 2014 to 2015. After completing her studies, she was worked as a freelance director in Berlin. Her production Aschenmutter was presented at HAU1 as part of the 2014 100° Berlin festival.
She has a passionate interest for the working process within theater groups, the discovery of different layers within biographical theater and the use of striking visual images and autobiographical stories in theater. When she works in Hungary, she relishes participating in various movements and actions. The protest campaigns against the current policies of the right-wing conservative government are very important to her.
