Marga Socias is an actress and above all a storyteller, who draws the audience in with her serene, easy and witty personality towards her imaginary. She establishes ‘ironic/unexpected’ connections between the senses, body and memory. She has been touring extensively around the world telling stories in different formats and for varied audiences, with little more than an umbrella or a folder and always creating an intimate and memorable atmosphere. At the moment she is interested in how to open doors to other worlds, working mainly with curiosity, the truth and the lie.

From 2002 to 2012, she has been a member of Teatro de los Sentidos, an international company specializing in Sensorial Theatre.
