Berlin based Marilyn Nova White (they/them) is an authentic actor, dancer, drag king and kinky performance artist with half Bulgarian roots. Their multidisciplinary work explores performance, movement, and the body with a focus on gender, physicalities and desire.

Discovering their passion for acting, the world of drag kings and the multi-faceted wonders of kink greatly influenced the narrative of their current work.
