Aria Sharma

Aria is a barely five-foot, Trinbagonian, multidisciplinary artist and actress who is currently pursuing her Masters at the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies; University of Toronto. She has been fortunate to have crossed paths and learned from so many persons thus far in her life. She received her undergraduate degree in acting at the joint program between University of Toronto Mississauga and Sheridan College in 2019 and went on to continue her training with Factory Theatre as a member of the Mechanicals program in 2019-2020 under the leadership of Nina Lee Aquino and Natasha Mumba. Apart from acting she works as a director, dramaturg, composer and sound designer. Her most recent creation was an original audioplay entitled The Trick to Walking Backwards; a fantasy/adventure story  that plunges you into a world where Trinidadian folklore exists in tandem with ‘reality’.
