a chat with Kristina

Q: Can you introduce yourself?


HI. I’m Kristina. I’m a theatre artist (performer, creator and director). I’m the director & creator of 12 and I
currently live in Ottawa. I love to create work that looks at our relationship with Nature and with one another.


Q: What other theatre projects have you been a part of?


In Canada, I’ve performed at theatres such as the National Arts Centre, Great Canadian Theatre Company, St
Lawrence Theatre Festival and Undercurrents Festival. Other projects I’ve created in collaboration with youth
include 12 Drops & 1 Moon, Wild Life, and now in development: Stuff.


Q: What does being in 12 mean to you?


It means that I get to allow the passions, fears and truth of young people to be seen, heard and hopefully
respected. Although I feel helpless at times, I know that I’m doing something–something for youth.


Q: What’s your favorite part of the natural world?


Mountains. In particular, the mountains of Colombia, my home.


Q: What is one of your specific Climate Change worries?


That many humans, as a species, continue to operate from a place of ego, power, and with the illusion that
they’re more important than the natural world around them.


Q: What is a question you would like to ask about Climate Change is?


What will it take for you to stop, just stop — and dare to own your part in what is happening?


Q: Do you have a favourite hobby?


Learning about neuroscience. I am seeking to find an intersection between theatre & science.


Q: What’s your favourite word?
