Maria has been fascinated by the wonders of costume making and backstage life since she was a child. In the last four years, she delved into the transformative magic of theatre-making. She has built a reliable network in Lebanon by working as a Production Manager on plays and an Assistant Stylist on TV commercials in Arabic, French and English. She learned to manage high pressure situations, long working hours and creative compromise of ideas to meet time and budget constraints, in addition to having effective collaboration skills in different industries.
She challenged herself to expand her knowledge and network by coming to the UK. At GSA,
Maria has proven to be adaptable, a problem solver and eager to learn all about the theatre industry in the UK.
As a painter and creative soul, she enjoys being part of the creative process as well as the technical
and managerial aspects of a production. She hopes to utilise all of her skills, her learning in the
UK and her previous experiences to bring an interesting approach to any project she works on.
Her goals are to start as an Assistant Production Manager with ballet projects and companies and
work her way up to Production Manager. She also has the great ambition to one day create the
first National Ballet Company in Lebanon.
