ACTRESS ON THE RISE
"She walks into any room, be it a red carpet event space or the Pilates studio at the gym. Every head turns. For all the right reasons. Then, when she chooses to speak with you, her eyes light up like a thousand stars at midnight. She is an actress, model, fire twirler, video producer, director, dreamer and international woman of mystery."
More than 3 decades after Rauschenberg, filmmaker Evgenija Radilova spearheading Chinese cultural exchange
"“I believe that theatre can connect and transform people, and either by observing or participating we learn more about ourselves and the world around us,” professes Evgeniya, who characterized the experience as “the most profound” in her life."
ABOUT filmmaker Evgenija Radilova
"Evgeniya snagged a Best Actress award at the Blow-Up Chicago International Arthouse Film Festival for her performance in Let Them Have Their Way! But she proclaims that her most satisfying performance came in Kindertransport, in which she played a 13-year-old German Jew who was sent by her mother to England on a secret boat. For her performance, Evgeniya received the Charles Jehlinger award for Best Actress from The American Academy Of Dramatic Art."
CHINA - This past summer I was invited to teach and direct a play with the students of Chongqing China for a summer theater workshop! This experience changed my life forever in the most positive way! It was a great success!
We launched the Alchemy theater and film workshop and I was just invited back to go back this year for two more workshops. This time in Shanghai and Chongqing and for a film workshop. The students transformation was profound to watch. Biggest compliment I got was after the show when everyone was crying out of joy .....Some of the Chinse teachers said..." How did you do that? None cries in China!"
