Dorottya Kiss

Creative Entrepreneur/ Cultural Economist/ Art. Director/ General Manager/ Choreographer/ Trainer-Inspirator

Film & Stage Crew

Amsterdam, Netherlands


Besides being a performing artist (BA) 'from origin', I hold a BA degree in Cultural Sciences (incl. a Minor at the Erasmus Sc. of Economics) and two MAs in Cultural Economics & Entrepreneurship and Arts & Cultural Sciences (Erasmus University of Rotterdam). I love teamwork (‘no man stands alone’) and I’m also addictively passionate about coordinating & managing different projects (with different people) on different levels & from different perspectives (e.g. management / R&D, internal and external communications, logistics). Due to my creative -arts & design-, cultural scientific and business background, I have a broad global network and an intensified eye for detail and people (from different educational and cultural background) without missing and accentuating the whole picture.

My (18y) work experience within many layers of the cultural & creative sector has taught me to adjust to a continuously changing environment and tackle (organizational, financial, psychological etc.) issues with an open mind and a persistent creative approach.

Besides being a continuous entrepreneur I’m also highly interested to collaborate with or work for people/ organisations (whether within the non-, or for-profit sector or within the academic sphere) that seek my contribution on a personal-, organizational-, local-, national-, (EU) or international level.

By the age of 27, after having a more challenging personal life (than an average person under 30) I decided to take matters into my hand. I decided to 'create my own reality' instead. While sharing own experience and knowledge (whether verbally or through movement), I would like to motivate and inspire people in finding a 'healthy body, mind & spirit balance', their own passion, dreams and the tools to achieve their full potential that can make an individual even happier...whatever that may mean...
