Stephanie Orta-Vázquez (she/they) is a Bilingual Multi-Hyphenated Latinx Artist born and raised in Puerto Rico and now based in NYC, where they studied Creative Writing and graduated with a BA in Acting. She is a Classically Trained Actor, a Writer, and a Devised Theater Maker who’s created and participated in multiple works, both with and without a script. They trained in Poland with the Grotowski Institute and collaborated in Spain with the Institute of the Arts in Barcelona, where they also performed an original devised piece. Stephanie is most known for their resilience and ambition in the field, her initiative in 2020 led to an online Zoom presentation of her One-Person-Show, written and performed exclusively during the pandemic. In 2021, her Spanish micro-theater plays were chosen for Desde Nuestra Trinchera, a collection of works presented by and written by young Puerto Rican artists. Stephanie is currently working on a very personal script for a short film, which she is hopefully planning to have produced soon.

When Stephanie's not writing, she is performing, and when she's not performing, she's writing. "Para mi isla, siempre."
