  • Komsany completed her bachelor’s degree in theater from Northeastern University, Boston, in 2000, and has acted in and directed plays in Cairo such as “Al-Rahaya”

Saudi director, scriptwriter, actress and theater coach Lana Kamel Komsany took part in a Theater and Performing Arts Commission virtual conference in late July as part of plans to highlight Saudi talent, and reshape and strengthen the field.
Komsany discussed employing local talent and culture to produce high-quality contemporary theater that will represent Saudi Arabia internationally.
“We have an incredible mix of creatives, academics and experienced individuals. With proper collaboration and guidance, creative content can see the light,” she told Arab News. Komsany said that our local identity “is who we are and how we make art.”
“It’s a rich and complex identity, and deserves to be represented on stage locally and internationally,” she added.
Komsany completed her bachelor’s degree in theater from Northeastern University, Boston, in 2000, and has acted in and directed plays in Cairo such as “Al-Rahaya.”
She acted in and was part of the “Bussy” (“look“) initiative to shed light on women’s life stories.  
Komsany supervised the theater department at the Visual Arts Club in Jeddah and directed plays enabling children to create actual productions.
Komsany played a major role in talent training at the Saudi Aramco program for the enrichment of knowledge at the “1001 Inventions” exhibition in Jeddah and Riyadh.
Her involvement in the 2019 Jeddah season with “Ozwa Street” boosted her theatrical career.
She later opened a private studio called I Stage, and created “I am Woman” as her first theatrical production as part of the activities of Dar Al-Hanan alumni on International Women’s Day.
