Paula Folqués is a multifaceted woman, who has combined studies and work experience in both the business and theater worlds. Paula is passionate about acting and she is a theater maker who has also developed her art through playwriting and directing. She studied acting at the Escuela del Actor in Valencia and has continued her training with numerous teachers in different aspects of acting, and stage direction.
Paula is currently working for Tukkateatteri as well as continuing her training in DEI and developing her own theatrical projects. Among her work for theater in Finland, two theater projects of her own (Virtudes and Jälleennäkemisiä) stand out in which, both because of the theme of the play and the participants, diversity has been a highlight of the show. Feminism, multiculturalism and multilingualism are other aspects highlighted in her work.
Paula is particularly interested in studying the possibilities that theatre and the performing arts currently have, or that can still be developed, to bring Finnish diversity into the world of theatre.
Paula is a certified Cultural Diversity and Sustainable Development Dialogue Cards workshop facilitator.
Paula has done DEI work with: KOM-Teatteri, Turun Kaupunginteatteri, Tampereen kaupunki.
