Višnja Sretenović works as a freelance director, performer and actress. She studied acting at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts in Belgrade, Serbia. Shortly afterwards she moved to Germany, Hamburg, received the MA of Arts degree in Performance Studies and focused on her own artistic work in the fields performance and film art.

Her works were presented in Hamburg at Kampnagel, MS Stubnitz, Gängeviertel, Lichthof Theatre and Galerie 21. She took part at the exhibition FIGURE FOUR at BALTIC Center for Contemporary Art in Newcastle GB as well as the festivals in Hamburg: Hauptsache Frei - Festival of the performing arts and FEMLAB - A feminist experimental platform. As a performer, dramaturge or co-author Višnja has been working with performance-collectives SIGNA and schröderstatkus as well as with Hamburg’s artists Heike Bröckerhoff and Lois Bartel. As an actress she performed at various theatres, films and television productions in Germany, Austria, Denmark and Serbia, such as Volkstheater Vienna, Theatre Republique Copenhagen, Boško Buha Theatre Belgrad, Filmfest Munich.
