Adriana Santos is a Los Angeles based actor and writer. She holds a BFA in Drama and Creative Writing from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and an MFA in Playwriting from The Writer’s Foundry at St. Joseph’s College in Brooklyn. Adriana is a Colombian-American trilingual daughter of immigrants. She is part of a wave of immigrants’ children who look just like their parents but don’t have their accents. Her work aims to specify an experience of not quite fitting into Latina stereotypes or traditionally “American” ways of life yet feeling both wholly Latina and American at the same time. Original works by Adriana have been published on various online platforms. Her plays have been presented at NYU Tisch’s Experimental Theatre Wing, INTAR Theatre in New York, Playwrights at the Grand in Brooklyn, the Zurich University of the Arts and the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts where Adriana was one of three students from NYU selected to participate in an international arts collaborative called Building Bridges. Adriana is also a company member of cullen+them, a multidisciplinary (modern dance and acting), socially conscious performing company headed by choreographer, Hannah Cullen. Cullen+them has performed at the Met Breuer and New York Live Arts among other venues in New York. Adriana most recently performed in a reading of a new play, SMILE, by Melissa Jane Osborne, directed by Michelle Bossy as part of IAMA Theatre Company’s New Works Festival in LA. Recent television credits include: Daredevil (Netflix), Sweetbitter (Starz), and Taken (NBC).
