Billy Kissa is an actress on scripted and Improv Theater. After attempting to adapt to a “normal” career, studying Tourism Management in Heraklion, Crete, she returned to Athens to follow her first and great desire, acting. After graduating from “Theater of Arts, Karolos Koun”, she crossed paths with Improv Theater and completed ImproVIBE’s training in 2012.
Ever since she teaches and performs improv in Greece and all over the world. She is a main instructor at House of Improv (HoI) and a co-organizer of the International Greek Improv Festival “Mt Olymprov”, a member of the European improv network “The SIN”, part of the international collective for women improvisers “Project Eve”, the international troupe “3 Deadly Sinners” (a collaboration of Greek, French and German actors) and still works as an actress in scripted theater.
She works with adults, children of all ages and voluntarily gives improv classes to immigrants and refugees.
She lives with her cats (Hippy, Kotzam, Flerken) and dog (Mojo) and she dreams of the day she will be able to own a combination of an animal shelter and an Improv school/theater (yes, that’s right. An improv animal shelter!)
