World Premiere of Ghosts of Bogotá by Diana Burbano at AlterTheater Ensemble in San Rafael
Livia originated the role of Lola in the Rela Lossy award winning play Ghosts of Bogotá by Diana Burbano. Description: Drama queen Lola, do-gooder Sandy, and their hedonistic baby brother Bruno return to their parents’ home country to bury their grandfather. But he won’t stay dead! A comedy about breaking the bonds of family trauma, secrets that won't remain buried, and never feeling at home in any country that can claim you.
"In a star turn, Gomes Demarchi makes her lack of self-consciousness deeply conscious, because it’s always pitched to an audience... she’s adorable, because she inhabits her feelings with the heaving, full-bodied sighs and spasms most adults have been conditioned to abandon". Lily Janiak, San Francisco Chronicle

Paulistana by birth, Livia was born and raised in São Paulo, Brasil. Since immigrating to the U.S., she finished a degree in Theater and Performance Studies from UC Berkeley and has worked at the Magic Theater, San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, SF Playhouse, Center Rep, Crowded Fire, Theater Rhinoceros, Marin Shakespeare and Arabian Shakespeare. She is a proud Latinx artist, who also writes, having her autobiographical bilingual show Quem Eu? workshopped at UC Berkeley. She believes in the power of representation, storytelling, and empathy that this art form provides, and is passionate about the many layers available to a performer inside a character. She is committed to radical representation and inclusion within her own community and the theater beyond. Obrigada, Gracias and Welcome to my site!
