Ela Cosen was born and raised in Berlin. Thanks to Comedy Sportz she is finally tackling her „Neuköllnophobia“ - a common condition among Kreuzberg-natives. She left her beloved home for the metropolis of Bielefeld to study sociology. She kept moving, from Singapore to Bordeaux, to finally pursue her doctoral studies with a Fulbright scholarship in the USA. She came back to Berlin not quite a doctor but an actress from the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre. Since her return form New York City she performed for various theatres like the Volksbühne Berlin and Schauspielhaus Hamburg, as well as „off-theatres“. She is a guest performer at Deutsches Theater Berlin, dances Butoh, which looks scary and ugly, and does voice-over work.
