"ABSURD, DEVASTATING, INTENSE, AND SHE HAS COMPLETE CONTROL OF THE ROOM." THE FEST
"MASLI'S SET PIECES HIT EVERY BEAT, LEAVING THE AUDIENCE IN STITCHES." THE SKINNY
"It is as if she has just discovered the power of telling a joke, the spell it holds over an audience and the pleasure hit that comes with their laughter." The Fest
Julia Masli is an Estonian born, London based performer, theatre-maker and clown. She is committed to the exploration of how to be a human being in the world, or at times - a blade of grass. Her work aims to connect directly to audience’s hearts, make their bellies hurt from laughter, and transcend the concept of time and space, on a good day.
Winner of the Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality at Edinburgh Fringe 2019. Most recently, her show Legs had an extended sold out run at Soho Theatre. Julia's show Anna Karenina Na Na with The Pushkinettes was nominated for an Off West End Theatre Award for best production at Voila Europe Fest 2019.
