Born in Filiasi, Romania, in 1978 Gina has been a member of the regular ensemble of the National Theatre of Craiova since 2001. In addition, she has worked as an acting teacher with the arts department of the University of Craiova for two years. While developing her artistic career with the National Theatre Gina was also keen to improve and broaden her professional skills and, for this reason, became actively involved in both theoretical and practical artistic research. Her PhD thesis, based on Jerzy Grotowski’s work, brought her the opportunity to work and collaborate with some of the most famous theatre makers, such as Anatoly Vassiliev, Eugenio Barba and Thomas Richards. Gina lives in Craiova.
