ABOUT

MARINA RODRÍGUEZ is an international actress and director with current work in both Germany and Spain.

She graduated in drama at Institut del Teatre de Barcelona. In 2009 Marina moved to Berlin to work with Familie Flöz, and has played in the piece Hotel Paradiso since 2013. She is currently touring with them all around the world (Südtirol Kulturinstitut Audience Prize 2020).

In 2021 plays the main role in Die Türen, a short film written and directed by Catherine Periscal Julien, that dives into the world of schizophrenia (soon to be seen in different festivals). Also, this year Marina collaborates in #Kunstausbruch, a project curated by the foundation “Kunst und Natur” (Germany). Her work consist of a monologue that tries to expose her own Stream of Consciousness, and how it has been affected through the pandemic.

The concept of her last piece as an actress and director, Porn is on, won the prize Caravana de tràilers from the Festival TNT 2017, Spain. The stage performance was premiered at the 2018 edition of the same festival with further shows in Spain. 2019 the piece made his way to the top 10 best sell pieces at the international theater festival Temporada Alta.

In 2017 she collaborated with the dancer and choreographer Valentina Bordenave, joining the Anderplatz Kollektive and creating the piece Detached (Dock 11, Berlin).

2014 she won the first prize of Festival de música clássica de Cervera for her short video Frederic Mompou–Marina, inspired by the eponymous catalan piano composer.

Back in 2012 she began to work with the company Theater Am Tisch. She presented her first work as a director with the piece ALTBAU (2013), a site specific theater piece which played in many different private apartments in Berlin. With Theater Am Tisch she also premiered the piece Getaway at the BE Festival in Birmingham 2015, and the gaming piece Megalopol!s, funded by Bezirkamt Friederichshain-Kreuzberg, at the Fellini Gallery Berlin 2016.

“But there’s no kindness nor warmth in mainstream pornography, neither in Marina Rodríguez’s Porn is on. The piece is bravely facing the submission of women and the impact that this industry has on society, and it makes it clear that the image of a woman falling to the ground says much more than retrograde sermons. ” Diari Ara.
