Hi my name is Andrea Cabrera Luna, I read an MA in Performance and Culture at Goldsmiths College with Maria Shevtsova, who inspired my interest in the sociology of theatre and performance. I read Directing at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow, a BA in English Literature at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and a BA in Acting at the National School of Performing Arts (ENAT), Mexico City. I enjoy movement in all its varieties. Life, people, meditation, curiosity and inquiry are my great sources of inspiration.  I had the immense privilege of training with directors Augusto Boal, Mike Alfreds and John Wright. I have also trained with European companies Theatre du Soleil, Odin Teatret and Complicité.
