From Uruguay, I am currently undertaking the Drama and Theatre Studies PhD at University of Birmingham.
Since 2005, I’ve been working as an actress, director, and researcher at the intersection of theatre and politics, especially in relation to Theater of the Oppressed as a methodology. One of my main areas of interest is related to prisons and the achievements of theatre with people who are imprisoned.
Currently I am directing a devised biographical theatre project with young people in prison and with young actors, all of whom are collaborating on the collective creation process.
I am a professor at the Multidisciplinary School of Dramatic Art, where I am responsible for the area/focus on Drama History and Analysis, the course on Theatre in contexts of deprivation of liberty, and the school’s Gender Commission.

I am interested in research and liminal practice at the intersection of (and between) theatre and politics, especially–but not only–in relation to Theatre of the Oppressed as a methodology. One of my main areas of interest relates to prisons and the achievements of theatre with people who are imprisoned.
I am now conducting research about the oldest branch of Theatre of the Oppressed–Newspaper Theatre–and its use in the current political conjuncture.
In addition, I am interested in feminism and how feminist movements perform their actions.
As a result of my study and work in the drug policy field, I am also keen to continue my research about the contributions of arts to harm reduction associated with drug use.
