About me
Celine is a 25-year old London based movement artist, filmmaker and photographer who also freelances as a casting director. Her performance background includes training in ballet, contemporary, house and voguing, as well as acting and physical theatre. As a dancer, she has been appearing in music videos (La Roux, Frida Sundemo, The Pressure), commercials (Vodafone UK, G-Star Raw UK) and performed on stage for Sam Smith at the Brit Awards 2019. As a performer, she’s starred in her own physical theatre piece Putzi Kamionka, which debuted at The Place Theatre in 2019. Having worked for LANE Casting for a year as a casting associate she's cast multiple projects and gained experienced in this field, specifically in dance related work. Simultaneously she’s kept working as a freelance photographer, mainly focusing on portrait and movement shots for dancers and actors, as well as documenting the European Ballroom scene, and has had her work published in Kaltblut, Sleek Magazine, Hero Magazine & Indie Magazine. Throughout her Drama & Theatre arts Degree at Goldsmiths University, she found her paths to be continuously crossing over between movement and directing, and aims to expand her work further in this field.
