Alison is my name. Given by my Venezuelan grandma to honour her favourite actress. What a life coincidence that her grandchild ended up becoming an actress.
When I was 18 I changed my hometown from Caracas to Madrid, looking to pursue my dream of becoming an actress, 4 years later I achieved the first step of this journey, getting my B.A in Performing Arts.
At 25 I decided to try living in Tokyo for a year. I experienced what it is to work as an actor in english, spanish and japanese. It proved to be challenging but it taught me discipline, resilience and gave me more reason to continue this path of the actor, now back in my beloved Madrid.
I have been on stage since I was 16. My journey started with Musical Theatre, little by little I started to fall for physical theatre, dance theatre, jazz, ballet…
I guess I could be described as a passionate soul. I fall too deeply for the things I’m interested in and I never stop until I’ve mastered them. That makes my learning so much more intense, but so full of meaning.
From my passion of living and feeling, I get my will to live from creating and doing.
I don’t know how to live without playing, I don’t know how to live without theatre.
All of my experiences have shaped me into the person and artist I am today.
