From Latin America to Germany

Marianne Eilers González, born in Viña del Mar, Chile, in 1997, pursued an interdisciplinary degree in Arts and Humanities at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC). She majored in the Theory and Practice of the Scene, with minors in Universal Literature and Psychology. In 2021, she relocated to London to undertake a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Directing for Stage and Screen, achieving distinction first-class honours.

During her undergraduate studies, Marianne played integral roles in diverse leadership positions. She actively contributed to the political movement ‘Nueva Acción Universitaria’ and served as the Coordinator of the Students Union. Additionally, Marianne took on pivotal responsibilities in various student-based projects and even stepped into the role of Assistant Professor in different modules.

In 2023, Marianne accomplished a significant milestone by developing the play titled ‘Alerta,’ for which she served as the writer, producer, and director. The play premiered at the Bread and Roses Theatre and experienced a remarkable success, being completely sold out during its three days of performances.

Now based in Germany, Marianne is actively exploring teaching and facilitating roles, particularly focused on children and teenagers. Her current research revolves around language, where she is developing a new practice called ‘Language-Focused Practices’ within the framework of intercultural theatre practices. Through her work, she remains dedicated to using art as a powerful tool for social justice and community connection.
