    About me

    Performance Art, especially in theatre and film, is undoubtedly the path I will continue to follow throughout my life. Besides this cheesy declaration, here is a bit more about me: I was raised in Bucharest, Romania, then moved to London at 15, and I have been on my own since 16. Of course that involved some tough couch-surfing and constant juggling of school and work⁠—in present day, I am a fresh graduate of University College London (UCL) with a Bachelors in Comparative Literature and Foreign Languages. Besides literature and language, my course entailed philosophy, cinema, classics and art. I am (almost!) a polyglot—I am fluent in Romanian, English, French and Russian, as well as practising Japanese. On top of this, oil painting is my first love, and surrealists such as Beksiński, Bosch and Dali are my main influences. I aspire to illustrate dreams, nightmares and other absurdist imagery in their likeness. I am also keen on piano, anime and photography. I generally dream of being a professional performer and writer.

    Acting experience

    1 ) I was part of the Front of House team for Secret Cinema’s ‘Romeo+Juliet’ for the entirety of its run, which first and foremost encompassed responsibilities such as ensuring health and safety for audience members, as well as organising and coordinating crowds in order to aid with the smooth run of the show. An equally important duty was maintaining the immersive quality of the experience at all times within the assigned role. I prepared for this by practising an American accent, learning sonnets, and refreshing the Shakespearean language I knew.

    2) I worked as a member of staff for Secret Cinema’s Merchandise team during ‘Blade Runner- The Final Cut’ from April 2018 to July 2018, which taught me about maximising sales and handling stock in order to maintain the audience’s interest in the products. Another important responsibility was ensuring that I perpetuated the immersive element of the cinema consistently throughout. I made sure to inform myself of the respective film and appropriately incorporate the information in my character's persona.

    3) I was part of a Young Vic ensemble cast for a parallel production of the advertised play, 'The Trial' in the spring of 2015. The actors had creative positions, from which they reflected Franz Kafka's novel of the same name onto the theatrical space. The company discussed and analysed the text in order to create a unique play inspired by the personalities of the cast. The creative process was highly improvisational and tested the emotional limits of the cast, which helped bring authenticity on stage.

    4) I received an A* in my Drama A-level subject as a result of my practical and theoretical work over the course of two years at The Charter School in London.
