ABOUT | CV

MARINA RODRÍGUEZ is Berlin-based actress and director with current work in both Germany and Spain.

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

In 2011 she created Kazibaze Theater Company, with whom she organised the bilingual theater Festival for Kids Kindertheater Reihe (2012-2017).

In 2012 she began to work with the company Theater Am Tisch. It was with this company that she presented her first work as an actress and 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, at the Fellini Gallery Berlin in 2016.

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

In 2017 she collaborated with the dancer and choreographer Valentina Bordenave, joining the Anderplatz Kollektive and creating the piece Detached.

In the same year she started working on her second piece as a director called Porn is On. A piece about how & where feminine sexuality is reflected in mainstream pornography. With this presentation she won the theater contest Caravana de tràilers from the Festival Terrassa Noves Tendències 2017. The whole piece was premierd at the 2018 edition of the same festival.

“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.
