As a director and choreographer I tackle storytelling from a myriad of perspectives, styles, and themes. I seek work that challenges me intellectually and artistically, and I strive to motivate my audience to reflect on their own experiences and understandings of the plays they see.
When working with actors and designers, I believe in the collaborative nature of theatre. Much like a captain steering a ship, I cannot create my art alone. Indeed I rely on the talents and input of other artists to complete my vision of any show.
The process of creating theatre is organic and the form a play takes continually fluctuates and adapts to new discoveries, information and play. I specialize in harnessing that evolution and moulding it into the form of the story in line with the playwright’s intentions.
A resident of the DC Metro area for 14 years, Kristina teaches theatre full-time at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School where she is also the artistic director of the Good Counsel Theatre Company. In addition to her work at the school, Kristina serves on the Board of Director’s for Damascus Theatre Company and has performed in three productions with DTC: My Favorite Year (Belle), A Little Night Music (Petra), and Fiddler on the Roof (Frumasarah).
When not working with DTC or GCTC, Kristina freelance directs and choreographs at different community and educational theatres across the DC Metro area--from Alexandria to Annapolis. She has also worked professionally as an assistant director with The Olney Theatre Center, Roundhouse Theatre Company, ATMTC, and Signature Theatre. Kristina earned her BA in Theatre from the University of Maryland and her Certification in Teaching from Notre Dame of Maryland.
