Elena Egina is a Russian girl who decided to settle in Shanghai, attracted by the opportunities that offers this vibrant city. Not only opportunities for her career in the field of architecture, but also opportunities to meet and get to know inspiring people from all over the world.
Her genuine interest regarding people led her to 99women, but it wasn’t the only reason…
I joined that project, because I have always been curious about expressing my emotions and my inner world on stage. I used to express myself only through my designs, buildings and paintings. That time, I want to try a different approach. I met Genevieve during a dinner with friends, and she gave me the desire to take part in that amazing project.
Elena how did your first rehearsal go?
I was a little bit unconfident when I was on my way to the theater, but from the very first moment, when I entered the room, I felt an atmosphere of great unity among all the ladies. We went through different exercises together – to relax, to become creative. It was an amazing experience to connect with my own emotions, and to see how others express those same emotions… And now I can’t wait for our next rehearsal!
