For as long as I can remember I’ve always had something with theatre. As a little girl I always wanted to be on stage and perform in front of people. I used to put all sort of weird costumes on and made up all kinds of sketches, which my parents and any other person, who was present at that time, had to watch. The reason I love theatre so much is probably because I grew up with it. My mother is an actress and my father a producer and they always took me to rehearsles with them. So theatre was basically always around me.
When I was twelve I joined a youth theatre group who made performances/plays based on the writing exercises they gave to the players. This way every player had a personal connection with the performance. I’ve played there for three years, three very interesting and fun years. Last year we performed Hamlet from my beloved writer Shakespeare. It was an amazing experience and I would love to do it another time.
Even though I’ve loved theatre all my life, up to recently I never wanted to make my carreer out of it. that changed a few weeks ago. This year I decided not to play but to work behind the scenes. I did the costumes for the same youth group I used to play in. The last three weeks I practically lived in the theatre, I came there every day to help with performances, watch performances and play in performances. And I finally realised that this is what I want to do when I’m older, actually, this is what I want to do for as long as I am able.
So now when people ask what I want to do later, I have an answer: something in theatre. what In theatre I still do not know.. I love all sides of it. I might not know what part is the right one for me yet . but I do know one thing: I belong in the theatre, because that’s what feels like home.
