Christina Vasala Kokkinaki
Christina’s involvement with theatre started at the age of 15 when she joined the local theatre group in Kefalonia, the Greek island where she grew up. She studied law and drama in parallel and successfully graduate from one of the two. She took short acting courses at the Theatre of Changes in Athens and the Central School of Speech and Drama in London. It was five years ago that she discovered GEDS, later joined the GEDS Committee, and started participating in and arranging playreadings and then helping out with productions. She played the small role of Gretel, a prostitute, in Frankenstein by Nick Dear (2018) and the slightly bigger and absurdist role of Madame Fromage in ‘Dentity Crisis by Christopher Durang (2019). Weekdays from 09:00-18:00, Christina plays an international lawyer who protects migrants’ personal data. In her free time she invents intriguing murder mystery stories in the sometimes quiet streets of Geneva with the improv group Murderet.
