Single Line Theatre is an independent, forward-thinking arts organization who found its niche at the intersection of theatre and film.
The company’s mission is to create thought-provoking work — the kind that deeply examines human condition in its complexities — with the goal to better understand our individual and collective selves. Our work is built on values of collaboration, diversity, and artistic excellence.
Single Line Theatre’s inaugural production of The Body of a Woman as a Battlefield in the Bosnian War by Matei Visniec was presented in September 2014 at The Cultch as part of the Vancouver Fringe Dramatic Works Series. This year, the company produced the pilot episode of Hunt for Joy for Telus Storyhive.
Sinziana performed at the acclaimed Festival d’Avignon in France with Made The World Over Theatre, and toured with the same company in South Korea. She worked with directors such as Andrea Boyd, Jeong Ju Kim, and Bernard Salva, and is now thrilled to be working with Cristian Badiu and Darryl Ahye. She has acted, directed, and created new works in both English and French.
Sinziana moved to Vancouver after completing graduate studies at L’École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq in Paris, where she focused on Movement and Physical Theatre. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Drama Honors Degree from the University of Alberta.
Darryl Ahye – Film & Media Director
Darryl has been directing, shooting and editing commercials, short films, art films and music videos for over a decade.
He is resourceful and creative in finding ways to express stories and ideas through his videos. He consistently studies and practices to expand his knowledge of film, technology and art.

Katherine Krampol – Artistic Associate & Arts Administrator
A creator experimenting at the intersection of media and live performance, Katherine’s work has been on ongoing exploration of the cultural memory of her ancestors. Her latest project, The Sleeping Regime (in development) – is an intermedia theatre piece exploring the legacy of communist dictator Nicolai Ceausescu’s grisly reign in Romania and its psycho-emotional effects on her family and Romanian people. A graduate of the BA Drama program at the University of Alberta and Pull Focus Film School, Katherine is honoured to join Single Line as Artistic Associate and rock star Arts Administrator.
Cristian Paul Badiu – Artistic Director
Cristian currently plays the roles of director, performer, designer, researcher, and teacher in relation to The Theatre and would like to add to those the ones of playwright and dramaturge. His journey into the arts prompted him to travel and learn in a few countries around the world: Romania, France, US and now Canada. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Performance Studies at University of Alberta following his MA in Theatre Arts from Eastern Michigan University. Cristian is excited to showcase the work of Single Line Theatre and this amazing creative team to the Vancouver audiences.
