Silvia Perez He knew how to turn his career around to meet a full version today. After rising to fame as a model and later as one of the “Alberto Olmedo girls”the sad end of the remembered comedian led her to start from scratch. “Everything came together with a lot of energy and it was like a rebirth”remember about “The Last Passage“, made in 2006 and that meant her return to the stage. That path led her to the present, where she stands out in “The Last Bonaparte” beside Mauro Alvarez on Saturday nights at El Camarín de las Musas.
“Although the life of Marie Bonaparte seemed very interesting to me, and it is, I had not taken into account that crossing it with my life would have other types of repercussions”he explains with a trace of surprise in his words. Silvia Perez he knew how to connect the life of his character with his own story, which gave the work an unexpected turn and even served to heal sections of its journey. As proof of his good present, the idea of choice appears in the work he does: “I began to travel a new path where I can choose what to do that until then I had not done”recalls about his second stage in the media.
-Discovering yourself in history prompted you to accept the proposal?
-It happened to me in rehearsals that I began to discover what I was getting from inside my childhood, from my life as a sex symbol, from the story of my mom and dad. At some point, I had some difficulties until I let go, I surrendered and there it flowed more and more. I honestly feel like I’m giving birth every night. For this to be true, I have to go through those places every night, the painful and sad events. I think it cures and heals, especially because I’m learning but it’s very interesting.
Does this experience exhaust you?
-It’s not heavy because we artists get into the places we have to get into and we have the ease of knowing that we’re voluntarily getting into those places, that’s how we get out too. Afterwards I enjoy it with the return of the people and the dinner with the companions, there I am already with me.
-You fully lived your spirituality when that was not so usual, did you ever feel observed?
-I realized that I was judged, people were ironic. She never changed what she felt or the path she was taking. The gaze of the other influences everyone’s life and has happened in mine, especially in the 1980s. In the case of spirituality, since it is such a real contact with what we are, you begin to discover that judgment of others and criticism is part of the compliment. It ends up generating more compassion for me than anything else.
-You were part of Alberto Olmedo’s “team”, how do you see humor today?
-The truth is that I don’t see much humor. I feel that what is called humor I don’t know if it makes me laugh, it is very difficult to make people laugh. Although the work of the drama and this thing of crying is highly valued, I assure you, I who have traveled both sides, it is much more difficult to make people laugh than to cry. I learned that working with Alberto and, although I think there are interesting things, there is not much humor.
