SITI Conservatory Spotlight: Manuela Ferreira

Jan 24, 2017

Each week, SITI Company spotlights one of our Conservatory artists. This week, we are happy to highlight the work of Manuela Ferreira. Speaking of her work as a director, Manuela says, “In fact, that question of translation is not really new for me, because I used to work with different groups of people in different contexts– like professionals, non-professionals; young people, old people– so in a way, I’m always translating my ideas, my idea of theater. […] A director needs to translate.”
