Arielle Zaytsev

Arielle Zaytsev is a performer, creator, and storyteller.

Arielle Zaytsev was raised in Los Angeles by her Jewish Russian-speaking doctor parents, meaning, as a first gen, there was a lot of pressure on her to follow in their footsteps. However, after a stint in Fiddler on the Roof in middle school and a general love of validation, Arielle decided that performing was her destiny. 

Now based in New York City, Arielle has graduated with her BA in Acting at Pace University and is currently non-union. She also works as a tour guide, which is basically her workshopping her solo act with some Chinatown recommendations thrown in. Always on the go, her weeks are packed with rehearsals for her next devised piece of theater, but her weekends are film shoots, a newer medium that she has fallen in love with. She fills the few empty parts of her days with brainstorming travel itineraries, binging TV shows, and doing anything from her “lazy susan” of hobbies (building miniatures are in right now).

She loves interesting, original works and is on the hunt to work with interesting, original people.
