Hello, I`mWalaa Kaddah
My name is Walaa, and I am an actor/dancer passionate about drama in all its glorious forms, so I wouldn’t mind being called a drama queen. If anything, I find it fitting to how I found meaning in life’s existential questions, and accordingly, that’s how I chose to carry myself in the world. I have a BA in Theatre Arts from the American University in Cairo and a two-year MFA in the Meisner technique from the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre, NYC, making me 3rd generation Meisner actor. I also have actor conservatory training with SiTi company, run by Ann Bogart, specializing in Suzuki and viewpoint actor training. I am a current student at Cairo Contemporary Dance School, completing my third year of short dance Modules. I have worked professionally with many directors, such as Marwan Hamid, Mohamed Shaker Khodier, and Khairy Bishara, and I am an active member of the Egyptian Actor Syndicate.
