Overview

Hi, there! My name is Elena and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and have loved helping my students in Theatre, language and Italian food. I went to in Florence, Rome and Berlin and earned a degree in Theatre Director and costume design in 2004. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Accomplished and enthusiastic director who has earned the deepest and strongest experience in physical systems of performance, with a particular interest in physical action (latest Stanislavski and Grotowski), Commedia dell’Arte and Mimesic Method (Orazio Costa)
Moreover she studied dramaturgy with professor and dramaturge Andreas Wirth, Dean of University of Arts, Berlin, where she focused on the interpretation process of a text into a performance on stage.
