“I am art. I am Barcelona. I am Swab” is a series of interviews with relevant people of the Barcelona creative environment, whose aim is to enhance the cultural network of the city.
Today we talk to Bruna Cusí, Spanish actress of theater, television and film and winner of the Goya Award for Best Newcomer Actress 2018.
I am Bruna Cusí. I am art. I am Barcelona. I am Swab.
In one sentence, how would you describe your relationship with acting?
I can indeed describe it in one word: Intense.
A place in the city that connects you with art?
The theater of the National Library of Catalonia.
If Barcelona was an art work, what would you name it?
I like to be literal with titles: Barcelona__2022
A message to young creatives?
Focus on being able to dedicate yourself professionally to what is vocational for you, but don’t be sorry if sometimes it doesn’t work out, because, after all, life and your health are always more important than any artistic process.
What projects are currently keeping you busy?
As an actress I have finished “Upon Entry”, the debut film of Alejandro Rojas and Sebastian Vazquez and I am also lucky enough to be getting into the universe of “Golem”, the next film of the Burnin Percibas, which we will shoot this summer.
