Mariana is a young performer born and raised in the South of Portugal.
In the end of 2019 she had her debut on an original musical production in Portugal NICOLAUS’ FACTORY ( FABRICA DO NICOLAU) where she worked with an important group of actors and production in Portugal.
At the age of 6 years old Mariana started to learn Piano, Flute, Music Theory and Choir at MUSIC CONSERVATORY in Portimao. A few years later she accidently came across an acting workshop and (what an amazing accident) she found what she wanted to do for life. From here she did her acting formation in Lisbon at School of Actors (ACT) but never forgetting how music made her feel in 2017 she decided to leave her country and go on a adventure of her life and move to LONDON.
In London she studied at INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE OF MUSICAL THEATRE ( ICMT ) where she had intense training in singing, acting and dancing. Mariana also had the chance to train in NEW YORK CITY with industry professionals at ICMT.
Mariana is always looking for new classes and challenges to help her become a better performer and adjacent a better person so in January of 2020 she started her training with INDUSTRY READY CTC .
During this last 3 years Mariana has been working at a Hostel not only where she found a family but also had the chance to develop some skills such as EVENT HOST organizing weekly events. In parallel has been working in a day centre supporting and entertaining special needs clients with all types of disabilities.
