Alice da Cunha
Alice da Cunha was born in Brazil where she discovered her love for acting at a young age while playing barefoot, in the streets and beaches of colorful Rio de Janeiro. Later she moved to Lisbon, Portugal where she spent most of her later childhood and adolescence.
Her desire to pursue an acting career took her to London where she studied Acting at Drama Studio London, Creating Theatre and Performance at the London International School of Performing Arts and started working professionally.
Her London credits include: Theater: “This Much is True” at Theatre 503, “The Illegals” at London’s City Hall, “Closing Time” at The Assembly Rooms at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and at The Soho Theatre and “Anna in the Tropics” at Hampstead Theatre. Film: “The Iron Lady” By Phillida Lloyd and and “Outpost: The Black Sun by Steven Baker.
In late 2011 Alice moved to Chicago and was fortunate to start working with Gray Talent Group very soon after. Her Chicago credits include: Vanessa in “Veteran Voices” at Erasing the Distance, Matilde in “The Clean House” at Remy Bumppo, Edelvisa in “Please Say Yes” at Redtwist Theatre, Liz in “After” at Profiles Theatre and her character Prof. Diuma proudly hosted the clown show “Dal Vivo” at The Den Theatre. She had the pleasure of being directed by Stephen Cone in his Short Film “Paint” and by Nora Fiffer in her web-series “Matching Pursuit”.
Alice is the Co-Artistic Director of PHYSICAL FESTIVAL, an annual physical, visual and contemporary theatre festival in Chicago, and she is also an Artistic Consultant for Theater Unspeakable.
