Coco Azoitei studied violin at the Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, winning several prizes before working full time as a violin soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player. She held a full time job in the BBC Concert Orchestra for two years and decided to pursue acting while appearing as a stage musician in a Headlong Theatre production of Strinberg’s ‘Easter’. Coco will be graduating in December 2016 from the Advanced Professional Intensive Diploma at the Giles Foreman Centre for Acting in London, a 16-month postgraduate-level method acting course based on the movement psychology method of Yat Malmgren. Her roles include Natasha in ‘Three Sisters‘ and The Mother in the devised play, ‘Refugee‘, Cassandra and Cilissa in ‘The Oresteia‘. In December she will appear as Serafima in her graduating-term play ‘Dying for It‘ by Moira Buffini, based on ‘The Suicide‘ by Nikolai Erdman and an Industry Showcase at the GFCA in Soho.
