Dramaturg | Playwright | Librettist

Since 2009, I have written mainly for theater and opera. I have worked with Àlex Ollé as a dramaturg – Quartett (by Luca Francesconi) at Teatro alla Scala in Milano, Histoire du Soldat (Stravinski) at the Opera de Lyon, etc., and as a librettist – Frankenstein (Grey) at La Monnaie, Bruxelles (2019).  I am currently writing a second opera for Mark Grey, Birds in the Moon, that will be premiered in 2020 in the US.

Up until 2009, I worked for several Catalan, Spanish, Italian and French theater companies, as a playwright, assistant director and producer. I was also part of the Sala Beckett Theatre team from 2003 to 2008.

Back in 1996 I moved to Dublin to study contemporary Irish theater and I stayed until 2001. In Dublin, I worked as a playwright, director, actress and assistant director in tiny, small, medium and huge projects. Among those I value the most are Armada Theater Co., Opera Theater Company, Dublin Fringe Theater Festival and the contemporary music ensamble VOX 21, with whom I worked on several projects, directed by composer Benjamin Dwyer.

Training

Dramaturg, Playwright and Librettist

I trained at the Col·legi de Teatre of Barcelona, the London College of Music and Drama in London and the Griffith College in Dublin as a performer. I decided to move to creative writing, dramaturgy, fiction and poetry, which led me to do the Universitat de Barcelona’s Postgraduate in Narratology, the Lancaster University Creative Writing MA (UK), and a PhD in Critical and Creative Writing at the University of Bangor, Wales (Unfinished). Countless spcialized training courses at the Sala Beckett International Playwrighting School with Martin Crimp, Anthony Nielsen, Xavier Albertí, etc.
