Yelena Moskovich

YYelena Moskovich is a Ukrainian-born, American and French artist and writer, author of The Natashas (Serpent's Tail, 2016), hailed by the Financial Times as 'brave, original prose [that] radiates with heat', and named a book of the year by the Irish Times, Telegraph and Guardian.

She was born in the former USSR and emigrated to Wisconsin with her family as Jewish refugees in 1991. After graduating with a degree in playwriting from Emerson College, Boston, she moved to Paris to pursue movement composition at the Lecoq School of Physical Theatre, and later its theoretical lens at Université Paris 8 with a Masters in Art, Philosophy and Aesthetics.


Her plays and performances have been produced in the US, Vancouver, Paris, and Stockholm. Her work as a visual artist has been exhibited at Queer Biennial Los Angeles, where she has also served as a curator. She has also written for the New Statesman, 3:AM Magazine, Happy Reader, and in French for Mixt(e) Magazine. Excerpts from her forthcoming second novel Virtuoso (Serpent's Tail, 2019) were published in the new issue of Dyke_On magazine.
