Yan Balistoy studied acting at the ZHdK in Zurich. He was then engaged at Theater Oberhausen and Theater Neumarkt. During this time, he also worked in film and television.

Since October 7, 2023 he is fighting against the antisemitism he is suffering from the beginning of his engagement at Theater Neumarkt. The direction decided to accept the anti-israel-boycott of the terroristic organization hizbollah as a wish of a libanese performer in the ensemble.
