“In my experience, any the creative process reveals an aspect of who you are. Which I think it is intimately link to our physical journey.
In my case, I’ve been an immigrant both in Barcelona and London. As a small town girl, I have loathed and loved both cities.
As a theatre maker I have been inspired by its architectonic landscape, cultural vibrancy but most of all, by its people. The writers, musicians, grandparents, illustrators, stoners, the lovers, directors, dreamers… my work is shaped through and from my dialogue with them.”
