Ladydust Heads for Hollywood!

Ladydust aka Marina Tsigonaki

*By Donatella Adamou

With the ease of a chameleon, Ladydust leaps from the seventh art to the world of modeling and back to the music console and the web as a radio producer. She prefers fans and admirers to call her a “music narrator”.


Marina studied French literature, drums & music theory.
She adores poetry and has published works.
She’s has produced the music for the fashion shows of Daphne Valente (chairwoman of Greek fashion designers at Zappeio Megaro) for the last two years and worked on many fashion designers’ shows. She has represented Greece in the photography course for World Peace and has been a muse of international artist and writer Demosthenes Davvetas; doctor of Aesthetics at the University Paris 8, France.

Marina’s music career kick started when she started touring her country as a DJ.
Until today she has toured in more than 20 big cities in Greece and abroad.  Her DJ set is titled: “The Art Of Modern Rock” and has become quite popular.
Prior she was the resident DJ at Hard Rock Café and the Booze Cooperativa.  The Booze Cooperative is a well known, creative multi-art foundation in the centre of Athens.

The idea of opening new paths seems by far more charming, risky, and adventurous to Marina. She’s  one of the breakout female disc jockeys in the world.  Marina tours and supports new bands internationally and helps expand the rock ‘n’ roll philosophy.
She’s also one of the few DJ’s in Europe who is sponsored by major North American companies such as Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey.
Ladydust is also known for her former radio broadcasts hosted every Friday night on Athens’ “Red” 105,5 FM. The radio show focused on an international indie rock repertoire promoting new and unsigned indie rock bands.  The broadcast was based on extensive research.  Over 1,500 demos flooded her mailbox every month from twenty countries. The broadcast was entitled:’ Tales from Planet Ladydust’.. The broadcast continues on:

Marina currently has a very hectic schedule preparing for the female starring role in the much awaited “December Riots”’ feature film.  It is written and directed by Dimitri Vorris of Metaphor Entertainment, LLC.  It also stars Michael Madsen of “Reservoir Dogs” and “Kill Bill”. She won the female lead part after auditioning among 35 actresses in the US, Greece, Spain, France and Italy. She also guest starred a few months ago in “Portable Life” starring Rutger Hauer of “Blade Runner”, directed by Fleur Boonman.


Her first breakthrough came with the ANT-1 TV2008-09 season of series “Key to Paradise”, next to popular comedian Spyros Papadopoulos. In 2009 she starred in two stage plays: “The Democracy in the Eye of Lyngea” at the Metaxourgio theater.  The play was directed by N. Katis.  The second play “‘Travel Abyss'” by Fernando Pessoa was performed at the theater Radio City in Thessaloniki.  It was directed by M. Geddes.  She also played in the movie: “Ladykiller”, produced by C. Koutsomitis.

Her future plans have the exclusive stamp of filmmaker Dimitri Vorris. She snapped the female lead in the charismatic director’s American and much discussed and  publicized production “December Riots”.  It will start filming at the end of September. The scenario focuses on parallel action focusing on the unjust loss of Alexis Gregoropoulos, which shocked Greek and all international public opinion. The story revolves around a group of Europeans and Americans trapped on December 8, 2008.

Marina portrays a radio producer.  By sheer coincidence the leading character bears the same name.She emphasizes that her character in the film is very close to her own personality.  She has had the same feeling and suffering in her personal and professional life in Greece.


Her life plan includes expanding’ the ‘avatar’ of Ladydust in other industries such as comics, animation, music compilations and more.  The Ladydust brand’ is already popular; her my space profile has hundreds of thousands of users.  Her website: is extremely popular as well.
Marina is in negotiations for a music TV documentary with Net (National Greek Broadcaster) and continues to perform her art of modern rock DJ sets.

Her next stop is Hollywood.
