“Anyone can play a note - an artist plays in the spaces” -
I am a theatre artist from São Paulo, Brazil based in Hoboken, NJ and graduate from Penn State University with a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre.
At the ripe age of six I first found my passion at the Casa do Teatro Célia Helena in São Paulo. There, I was introduced to the arts through a groundwork of improvisation and devised theatre - adapting classic texts such as Hamlet and Don Quixote into...'unique' theatrical experiences. Fair to say this six-year-old took it very seriously and thus the theatre-maker in me first came alive.
Since, I have studied around the globe at the New World School of the Arts, the Tring Park School for the Performing Arts in the United Kingdom and most recently Penn State. These institutions provided me opportunities to train in a variety of different genres, working on classics, new works and concerts - exposing me to the tools and space to get specific about the artist I wanted to be.
What continues to motivate me in this field is the power we have to own our perspectives, choices and flaws - sharing those with others in an effort to connect with them on a greater level. I am eager to continue playing in the work that is collaborative and curious.
