Synopsis: Mica has been fired for being brutally honest and for merely doing her job. At 38, she is writing her CV, and, given her mood, she writes it mercilessly-professionally competent, emotionally truthful, and sexually explicit. This is the CV of a generation caught off-guard by crisis and hooked to WhatsApp. Ana Asensio, stars in the International Premier of this one-woman theater-presentation written by best-selling Spanish author Paloma Bravo, directed by Jean Randich and produced by Factoría de Arte y Desarrollo.
Mica´s Skin, the novel, was published by Plaza&Janes - RANDOM HOUSE MONDADORI, in May of 2013, and now, only five months later, UNITED SOLO, the world's largest solo theatre festival, has selected the play to be part of its 2013 edition.
Ana is an actress and director who currently divides her time between her native Madrid and New York City.
"Penelope Cruz should watch her back," says NYTheater.com about Ana, following her performance in Medea´s Get Some Issues, presented last year at 2012's United Solo Festival and named the Best International Show. The play's international tour continues at Monomafia Festival in Estonia this August 14th.
Asensio's film-acting credits include: "The Afterlight," co-directed by Craig MacNeill and Alexei Kaleina; "The Archive," by Oscar winning director Ethan Spiglan; "Zenith," by Vladan Nikolic; and, the HBO short film "Betty La Flaca," by Hugo Perez.
Asensio's most significant theatrical role to date has been in the one-woman play, "La Diva," by award winning playwright Jeronimo Lopez Mozo that Ana translated to English, adapted and directed. "La Diva" has been performed in Europe, Africa and North America.
Currently, Ana is developing her first feature film as writer/director that will be shot in New York City.
