Maria João Falcão


I am an actress. Performing in theatre, cinema and tv. 

Currently based in Lisboa, I lived and studied theatre in Madrid, Paris and New York.

In 2019, I created the theatre platform número cinco, during my master's degree in Theatre Practices at ArtEZ  (Holland). 

This theatre platform is part of a personal research about the Actor's Autonomy. It is through it that I intend to continue my theatre practice, meet other artists, travel, develop my projects as an actress and create an artistic community.

With numero cinco I am interested in the possibly of a continuous practice, understanding and exploring the relationship between peers, and in the concepts of responsibility and authorship in my work as an actress.

I was born in Lisboa.
