Eva Signý Berger is a freelance stage and costume designer based in Reykjavík, Iceland.  

"I grew up in a small town in the north of Iceland and spent my summer holidays in London with my grandparents, who took me to the theatre, museums, art galleries and concerts from an early age. At 13 I joined a drama group for teenagers, and discovered my passion for theatre. Throughout my adolescence I performed in and produced numerous shows with my company, as well as acting with the local professional theatre and other groups. I also loved drawing, sewing and other crafts and often made costumes for the performances I took part in. Designing for performance has allowed me to combine my love of theatre and visual art and continues to fulfil my desire to collaborate with other artists to create something magical while learning something new every time."

Eva studied Design for Performance at Central Saint Martins in London and completed her BA(hons) in 2007.

After graduating she worked on various productions and projects in Iceland, Minneapolis, Berlin, London and Sweden before moving back to Iceland in 2008. She continued to take on varied jobs designing for theatre and puppetry as well as designing book covers and taking jobs as a technician and maker for stage and art productions. In 2009 and 2010 she designed the interior of a puppet museum and cafe in rural town Borgarnes, Iceland and in 2012 she worked as technician in house at the Theatre department of the Iceland Academy of the Arts, before turning solely to her passion of designing for performance.

In the last 12 years Eva has designed over 40 theatre, dance and opera production and has received 9 nominations for Gríman, The Icelandic Theatre Awards.

In 2019 Eva represented Iceland at The Prague Quadrennial 

of Performance Design.
