Mercedes joined FesTeLõn in 2018 after meeting Mariví at King’s College London where Mercedes directed the Spanish Department’s annual play. Her love for live performance comes from her 9 years performing in amateur musical theatre. Mercedes enjoys combining her Spanish language skills and her six years of Digital Marketing experience to promote the festival and create entertaining online content. She also does all the post-production videography (including FesTeLõn’s participation in the Spanish Embassy’s 2020 Culture Festival) and occasionally helps out with graphic design. Mercedes believes that FesTeLõn isn’t only an important platform for international theatrical cultures to interact but it is also a wonderful community of mutually supportive creatives who want to celebrate the arts and share them with the world.
