Office Coordinator – Elena Larkin
Elena moved to Melbourne in 2012 from NSW’s Far North Coast where she was involved in youth and community theatre for many years. She graduated from The University of Melbourne with a BA in Creative Writing in 2015, and has trained at The Victorian College of Arts and 16th Street Actors Studio. She performed in Adelaide Fringe Festival 2016 in a devised piece called “Do You Want to See Something Beautiful?” and is currently working on a new work for Melbourne Fringe Festival.
Elena saw her first production at La Mama in her first year of living in Melbourne. It was a night of performance poetry unlike any production she’d ever experienced. Ever since, Elena has been taken by La Mama’s commitment to local and independent artists and to producing works that don’t necessarily fit the norm. In 2015, Elena completed an internship at La Mama assessing scripts for Liz Jones and has been hanging around ever since. Elena is overjoyed to be reading scripts again this year and working as office coordinator.
