On a visit to Romania in 1997, I met a homeless boy of about 8 years old. I gave him a bottle of shampoo to wash his hair with. The next day, he found me and showed me how he had washed his hair, only he had very carefully washed one side and not the other. When I asked why he said that he wanted to show me the amazing difference between dirty and clean. His name was Cosmino.

COSmino aims to share:
The potential of polarity
The art of a dream
The beauty of pain
The fragility of happiness

COSmino Productions is Kuba Pierzchalski and Rachel Karafistan. The company was founded in Coventry, UK in 1998 by Rachel Karafistan. Then in 2000, while working as an actor on ‘Millenium Mysteries’ a coproduction between the Belgrade Theatre and Polish company Teatr Biuro Podrozy, staged in the ruins of Coventry Cathedral, Rachel met Polish actor, Kuba Pierzchalski and they began their collaboration.

Today they live and work in Berlin, Germany with their two children.
