NATACHA KOUTCHOUMOV

IMDB

"Natacha is a genius. The most captivating, charismatic, effortlessly masterful artist I have

had the honour of seeing. I'm tempted to say something facile like - this is Blanchett,

Swinton, Hunter and Cotillard all wrapped into one - but that's not fair - she is too unique, too

inspired and far too good for comparison. Acting gets no better than this - and rarely close."

- Keith Merrill

Winner of the Swiss Film Award in 2007 for Don’t Panic by Denis Rabaglia and

was nominated for her role in Garçon Stupid.

 

Co-director of the Comédie de Genève since 2017, Natacha was born in Geneva.

After studying at Fordham University in New York she trained at Paris IV (Sorbonne),

specialising in modern literature. She then entered ENSATT (École de La Rue Blanche,

Paris) where she trained with Nada Strancar, Alain Knapp, Adel Hakim, Aurélien Recoing,

and Claudia Stavisky. 

 

In classical and contemporary theatre, she’s worked with directors such as Adel Hakim,

Élisabeth Chailloux, Denis Maillefer, Robert Bouvier, and Dorian Rossel.

She is a writer and regularly collaborates as a columnist in the press and on radio (Le Temps, les Quotidiennes, RTS-La Première). RTS, RITA Productions and Akka Films also collaborates with her to develop screenplays for television and cinema.
