My name is Adriana and I'm a multi-hyphenated arts and culture expert. I was born in Mexico from Brazilian parents and I grew up in Italy. I’ve lived the majority of my adult life, studied and worked in the United States (1 year in Dallas-Texas, 7 years in New York City). As of September 2019, I'm based in Milan, Italy.
I'm fluent in Italian, English, Portuguese and Spanish.
I attended Bocconi University (Milan, Italy) where I earned a Bachelor in International Economics, Management and Finance with a comparative thesis about Niche Strategies for Experimental Theatre (class of 2012).
I graduated from the Acting Conservatory at The Stella Adler Studio, but some of my additional theatre training include The Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and NIDA in Sydney, Australia.
Some of my writing credits include my interviews to Belarus Free Theatre, Title:Point and FlucT which have been published by The Creators Project (Vice Media). Other credits go to the original plays Rocco Chelsea Adriana Sean Claudia Gianna Alex (off Broadway at HERE Arts, NYC) and NoWhere-NowHere (TheaterLab, NYC)
While in New York I've been Director of Development for John Gould Rubin's The Private Theatre, a non-profit theatre company that aims at revolutionizing the aesthetics of American Theatre. I’ve served as a board member for Vieve Price's TEA, a company grounded in the Insight Method for conflict resolution which engages in theatre for social justice. Last but not least, for Valeria Orani’s The Italian American Playwrights Project, I translated into English 3 soon-to-be-published Italian plays (Armando Pirozzi, Elisa Casseri, PierLorenzo Pisano). For this project, I also taught the Translating And Performing Italian Theatre class at Muhlenberg College with professor Daniel Leisawitz (spring semester 2019).
