Being part of “Common Greatness”

A story, a photo. This is the proyect of David Rota, a young photographer who has developed  “Common Greatness”, a place where common people tell their own story. Maria participated in this new project and this was the result. What do you think?

Common Greatness

“I was never afraid of not being able to live of my profession. I guess it could be, or it’s, unconsciousness. I don’t know. (Now I think I’m afraid. It depends). I only know that if I don’t do this I withered inside of me and I get very sad. Even when I feel misunderstood, when I play, when I perform, I feel that I fit. Fit.” 

Classical National Theatre Company

Maria selected in the wonderful cast of the dramatized lecture “La traición en la amistad” written by Maria de Zayas. A cutting edge classical play written by a woman who was ahead of her time. The play was directed by Jesus Cracio and produced by Compañía Nacional de Teatro Clásico, premiered 9th February 2015.
