Monica Anastase is a cultural entrepreneur and the founder of !MPRO – the National Improv Festival in Bucharest, Romania. Until 2020 she was an active performing improviser and a trainer of improvisation techniques for personal development, working with both adults and children from various walks of life, from disadvantaged groups to business environments. Since then, she has been in a transition to blend her background experience with her call towards relational health, by creating various programs that bring people together around delicate and important questions.
Monica holds a BA (2006) in Acting from the National University of Theatre and Film “I.L. Caragiale” in Bucharest, and an MA in Anthropology from SNSPA (2018). She appreciates good food, ways for a more sustainable living ethic, travelling the world, the truth of non-verbal cues and seeing both sides of a story.
