"LOOK AT ME" Magdalena Emar @MEMAR 2018

I'm an actor, writer, and translator. I've trained with Mariclare Costello, Neil Tonken & Susan Banker, Susan Giosa, Jean-Louis Rodrigue & Kristof Konrad, and with the teachers at Studio4, including Matthew Scott Snyder, Sean Barnes, Lak Rana, Wilmer Calderon, James Franco, and Robyn Cohen. I was cast as a lead (Mrs. Stone) in the Studio4/Rabbit Bandini feature film EVIL DAYS, a role that required a double preparation due to my character existing both in reality and in a dream sequence. Dreams, doubling, translation, the blur of identity, our multiple selves, these are themes that fascinate me. I love the poetry of Fernando Pessoa, and  Virginia Woolf’s ORLANDO is my favorite novel. I'm working on several scripts that feature feisty female characters. My essays, reviews, interviews and other writing can be found at www.magdalenaedwards.com. I am working on a book about the work of poet and translator Elizabeth Bishop, whose poem “One Art” reminds us that “the art of losing isn’t hard to master.” Love and loss, life and death.
