Welcome

I was born in Chile, and there I became an actor, theatre director and teacher. When I came to Canada in 1976 I already had a full theatrical career in my country of birth. The change to a new language, a completely new environment and culture was challenging. In this website you can find out how my theatre career continued and evolved in my adopted country. My personal experience with exile and immigration made me see theatre with new eyes, as an essential instrument for social and personal transformation. In 1988, I founded PUENTE THEATRE in Victoria BC, with the mandate to express through theatre the experiences of immigrants and diverse minorities. With PUENTE I had a rich, varied and profoundly life-affirming journey. In June 2011, I retired as PUENTE’s Artistic Director. I am  ready for new projects where I can use my experience as director, workshop facilitator, dramaturge, storyteller, and actor.
Since I retired I have been very fortunate and I’ve been able to participate in several exciting projects . Please click in the next line to see a description of them!
