Theatre Director

  • Location: London and Madrid
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

I worked non-stop as an actress since I was 14 years old, in TV and film, until life put theatre in my way and I felt in love with it. After writing, acting and producing shows I have realized that what makes me shake with happiness is directing plays, so that is why I am now so glad to say that I am: a theatre director.

I am based in London but also have my home in Madrid, Spain. I am currently working on “Royal Flush”, which will be my 4th season creating innovative plays in English language with Parlon Company, commissioned for Canal Theatre of Madrid (One of the most prestigious theatres of Spain).

My passion for all kinds of art gives me the strength to tackle complex multi-media productions where the narrative crosses forms to tell a consistent story through innovative and unorthodox means.
