Writer & Actress
Maroussia Vladi is the writer and actress of the award winning two-hander play “What Seems Like A Lifetime Ago”. First staged at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2013, “What Seems Like A Lifetime Ago” later went on national tour around Australia and received critical acclaim.
At the conclusion of this tour, and having also come to complete her four years of study at The Conservatoire of Dramatic Arts, Maroussia left for Paris. She lived her next five years in this enchanting city. Whilst there, she completed a further two years of actor’s training at École Jacques Lecoq, the internationally renowned school of physical theatre. Maroussia also completed a Master’s at La Sorbonne in French Culture and Literature. Most importantly she created, together with fellow colleagues from Jacques Lecoq, her very own theatre company, ‘Keep It Moving Theatre’. In Paris the theatre company performed in French, their most famous work being, “Les Rhinoceros Ne Sont Pas Encore Morts”, in English: “Rhinos Are Not Yet All Dead”. After a season in Paris in April 2017 the production went on tour around France.
In early 2018 it was time for Keep It Moving, to get a ‘move on’ and the company, toujours represented by Maroussia Vladi, now prepares to tell their newest story here in London.
