B i o g r a p h y
Hi! I'm Noemi, pronounced no-amy. As an actor, deviser, and director, I want to explore contradiction and connection in the theater and film I create. I'm based in Berlin and work in German, English, and Polish (and some French as well...).
I graduated from Stanford University with honors and distinction and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. I earned a B.A. in Theater and Psychology as well as the Eleanor Prosser Prize for Excellence in Theater. All that is to say, I I studied directing, acting, neuroscience, and counseling for 4 years, and that time really shaped who I am as an artist and as a person.
I'm really passionate about creating innovative theater while also addressing racial and social inequality in my work. That's why I'm thrilled to be growing as a director at the Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin, Germany's 2014 and 2016 "Theater des Jahres" (Theater of the Year). I've assisted the directing team on many shows, from a memorial piece about Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink to Winterreise رحلة الشتاء with the Exil Ensemble, a group of actors from Syria, Palestine, and Afghanistan, to Oliver Frljic's Ein Bericht für eine Akademie. I also wrote, directed and performed in a play called Epilogue at the English Theatre Berlin, which imagines the afterlife by putting narratives of women across the globe front and center. In 2019, I did the same for a new play called A Face to the Story in the Newspaper..., a play about queer Polish Jewish identity, which premiered in Kraków.
My background includes classical and contemporary acting, improvisation, directing, devising, playwriting, filmmaking, playing violin, and just a hit of sound design. I've always been bad at picking just one thing, but I find that in the arts, I don't have to. I'm excited to keep working with people who inspire me and bring their own mixed bag of tricks into the rehearsal room or onto the set.
