About me

 

I am currently a student finishing off my Honours degree in drama at Rhodes University, South Africa, with one month to go. I am a Lebanese-South African looking to move to London next year to pursue a career in acting and performance, having specialised in both contemporary performance and directing. During my school years in the purely academic, all work and no play French system, both in Cape Town and Majorca, I relished my short moments on the stage during ballet performances. When we returned to South African, settling in the small resort of St.Francis Bay, accessibility to the stage was bare, and I made the most of what, my school at the time, Woodridge, had to offer by the way of theatre and drama. Looking back, I suppose I was that ‘beach’ baby who spent her extra time drawing, dancing and performing a 9most likely0 politically incorrect version of a Berkoff character. Rhodes University was heaven sent. There I could finally devour and breath the world of theatre. I threw myself into my passion with little regard for much else, save for French and Journalism, practical courses which I took to appease my parents’ concerns about my future. From acting, dancing, contemporary performance, to directing, I was there in a heartbeat. Every opportunity to perform and learn was an opportunity not to be missed. So when I was selected to direct a devised piece for the Grahamstown National Arts Festival, I gave it my all. My piece, VOID won the Best student Production for 2015. Here I am now, hustling to make myself a name in the industry, be that through acting, performance or directing, because I truly love them all. After plucking up the courage to submit myself as a performer/actress, I now have the confidence to do so. I have a dual Irish-South African citizenship.
