What is Nowhere|nowhere?
NoWhere | NowHere is a production company that aims at creating a bridge between the excellency of the Off and Off-Off Broadway theatre scene and the new wave of Italian filmmaking to introduce a new cultural business model that makes theatre financially independent and thriving through new aesthetic elements of cinematography.
My dream for a better theatre is for theatre to grow stronger in its own form: for it to be inventive, for it to have individualistic defiance, for it to be authentic and free, non belligerent but uncompromising, to step forward into its own self respect, for it to find its own voice and have the power of its own agency, for it to shock you, electrify you, make you question yourself and your beliefs. People should walk out of the theatre differently than how they entered.
I undoubtedly believe that theatre, in its better form, can be all of this and I set myself to an irreverent quest to find how to make it.
MY NAME IS Adriana...
...and I'm an international theatre artist. I was born in Mexico from Brazilian parents and I grew up in Italy. I’ve lived in NYC for the past 6 years. My favorite NY credit is “NoWhere|NowHere”, a devised play about the role of the immigrant artist which I co-created and co-produced (TheaterLab) with other international actresses and long time friends and collaborators Samantha Hoefer (German, Polish) and Mouna Rmiki (Moroccan, French). The play was developed under the leadership of John Gould Rubin and Kat Yen.
I'm Director of Development, managing member and resident actress for John Gould Rubin's The Private Theatre, a non-profit theatre company that aims at revolutionizing the aesthetics of American Theatre. I’m a board member and company actress for Vieve Price's TEA, an artistic company grounded in the Insight Method for conflict resolution that engages in theatre for social justice. Last but not least, I’m Artistic Associate to Valeria Orani’s Umanism in The Italian American Playwrights Project, a program that seeks to create a cultural exchange of contemporary playwrights in the US and in Italy.
I graduated from The Stella Adler Studio, but some of my additional training include The Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and NIDA in Sydney, Australia.
Before coming to New York I attended Bocconi University (Milan, Italy) where I earned a Bachelor in International Economics, Management and Finance. While at Bocconi university, I was a permanent member of the Bocconi Theatre company, and co-founder of the Bocconi International Theatre Group. Recent credits include A Doll House (Marble House artistic residency) and There's Something About America (a stage reading at The Actors Studio). My interviews to Belarus Free Theatre, Title:Point and FlucT have been published by The Creators Project (Vice Media).
