Metralla Rosa con Carla Tofano

con Gledys Ibarra

Actress

 

Gledys Ibarra is not just an actress: Gledys is the art of performance, made woman.

Her passion for acting is pure and visceral, yet her process is both thorough and profoundly intellectual.

Her thirty-odd soap operas, ten or so films and many valuable productions – whether as an actress, playwright or director – mean that everyone in Venezuela knows who she is. And Gledys is also fast becoming an increasingly well established and familiar figure throughout the rest of the Spanish-speaking world.

Famous for the sea-green eyes that give her a deep, penetrating gaze, Gledys is the embodiment of an unstoppable, powerful and irreverent femininity. She lives in a permanent state of debate between her extremes – diva of life, yet constant student of her profession, strong but always warm, sharp yet remaining close, strict yet without denying herself an occasional acknowledgement of those who may challenge her own view of what is right.

In this intimate, yet very human get together Gledys and Carla explore how much the views of Venezuelan actors have changed in recent decades, the importance of fiction and creativity in reinventing identity during times of crisis, and her plans for the future in the international and comedy arenas. Together they reminisce about historical moments of Venezuelan television, and dare to dream of a diaspora filled with triumphs and joys in English and Spanish.

Gledys won the Lukas UK Award for best performance (2018) among many others, and is currently artistic director of Latin Stage London. She is sure to make you smile from the heart and dream at full blast. Or as she herself would say: “seal those dreams, love”. Whatever happens, just like in life, the show always goes on.

Attrice

 

Gledys Ibarra è più che un’attrice: Gledys è l’arte di recitare fatta donna.

Possiede una passione pura e viscerale per la recitazione, eppure il suo processo è allo stesso tempo approfondito e profondamente intellettuale.

Con almeno 30 telenovele, una decina di film e molte produzioni di valore come attrice, sceneggiatrice o regista, non c’è nessuno che non la conosca in Venezuela. Gledys è una figura sempre più affermata e credibile nel resto del mondo ispanofono.

È famosa per i suoi occhi verde mare, che trasmettono uno sguardo profondo e penetrante. Gledys incarna una femminilità inarrestabile, potente e irriverente. Vive in un dibattito costante tra i suoi due estremi. Diva di vita ma eterna studente di palco, Gledys è forte ma affettuosa, tagliente ma vicina, rigorosa ma occasionalmente si concede un gesto di condiscendenza con chiunque mette in discussione la sua idea di ciò che è giusto.

Gledys e Carla si ritrovano in un incontro intimo e molto umano dove esplorano quanto sia cambiato il punto di vista dell’attore venezuelano negli ultimi decenni, l’importanza della finzione e della creatività nel reinventare un’identità in tempi di crisi, e i suoi progetti per il futuro in ambito internazionale e nella commedia. Insieme ricordano momenti storici della televisione venezuelana e osano sognare una diaspora piena di trionfi e gioie in inglese e spagnolo.

Gledys ha vinto, tra gli altri, il premio Lukas UK per la migliore performance (2018), ed è al momento la direttrice artistica del Latin Stage London. Farà sicuramente sorridere il tuo cuore e farti sognare a tutto gas. O come direbbe lei stessa: “consolida quei sogni, tesoro”. Qualunque cosa accada, proprio come nella vita, lo spettacolo continua sempre.

Actriz

 

Gledys Ibarra no es una actriz: Gledys es la encarnación de la actuación hecha mujer.

Su pasión por la interpretación es pura y visceral y sin embargo, sus procesos pasan simultáneamente por la elaboración intelectual más minuciosa y profunda posible.

Con al menos 30 telenovelas, una decena de films y una cantidad importante de valiosas puestas en escena principalmente como actriz, pero también como dramaturga y directora, en Venezuela no hay quien no la conozca. Y en el resto del mundo hispanoparlante Gledys es sin duda una referencia cada vez más consolidada y certera.

Famosa por su mirada verde mar, tan profunda como penetrante, Gledys es la encarnación de la feminidad irrefrenable, empoderada e irreverente. Esa que siempre se debate entre sus dos mejores extremos. Diva de la vida y al mismo tiempo perenne estudiante de las tablas, Gledys sabe ser fuerte sin dejar de ser cálida, aguda sin sacrificar cercanía, y estricta sin negarse a sí misma uno que otro gesto condescendiente con quien desafía su visión de lo correcto.

Gledys y Carla en este encuentro íntimo y muy humano, hablaron de cuanto a cambiado la visión del actor venezolano en las últimas décadas, de la importancia de la ficción y la imaginación en la reinvention de la identidad en tiempos de crisis, y de sus planes a futuro en el ámbito internacional y la comedia. Ambas evocan juntas momentos históricos de la televisión venezolana , y se atreven, durante esta conversación, a soñar una diáspora llena de triunfos y alegrías en inglés y en español.

Merecedora del premio Lukas UK a la mejor actuación (2018) entre muchos otros, y actualmente a cargo de la dirección artística de Latin Stage London, Gledys te hará sonreír desde el corazón y soñar a todo cañón. O como ella misma lo diría: ‘plomo con esos sueños corazón’, que pase lo que pase, como la vida, el espectáculo siempre continúa.
