CO-ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, PRODUCER, PROFESSIONAL ACTRESS
At the age of five, Kristina Pakhomova’s destiny was sealed when her mother became a lead actress with a local theatre group in Russia. Watching her mother acting on stage, show after show, created a spark in Kristina that inspired her to make a life-changing decision- one day it would be her on that stage.
Many of her friends would vouch that once Kristina sets her mind on something, there’s no stopping her.
She graduated from LASALLE College of the Arts with a BA(Hons) in Acting. Kristina has performed in a number of theatre plays, short films, TV and radio projects as well as producing, directing, writing and performing in her own work. She is artistic director and founder of KrisP. Production, a Hong Kong based theatre and film production company. Now also co-founder and co-artistic director of Bold Moment Theatre and Actor Training (Singapore) with her business partner Khairul Kamsani. Kristina’s life mission is to help people express themselves freely and authenticity through creativity. Making bold choices and live to the fullest. She is a true believer that everyone is born creative. But sometimes we forget about it. Blocks, fears, and insecurities take over, they block creative channel, so creative energy is stuck with no way out. This “stuckness” then affects all areas of life. Kristina’s goal is to remind her students that they are already creative, and she can show the ways how they can let themselves be creative.
Khairul Kamsani is a theatre director, researcher and acting teacher on PhD scholarship at De Montfort University conducting practice-based research on Actor Training with Virtual Reality (2021-2024).
