Rodrigo Beilfuss

PD Artistic Faculty

After spending the last four years in Ontario with the Stratford Festival, Rodrigo is intensely excited to be returning home as the new Artistic Director of Shakespeare in the Ruins (SIR). Born and raised in Brazil, Rodrigo moved to Winnipeg in 2001 as an exchange student, discovering Hamlet in high-school. Mr Gord McLeod is to be blamed for everything, for Rodrigo hasn’t stopped pursuing Shakespeare since. In Winnipeg, Rod was a founding member of Theatre by the River, and he has directed and acted in several productions at various local theatres. He holds a BA (Honours) from the University of Winnipeg, an MA in Classical Acting from England’s LAMDA, and he’s a graduate of Stratford’s two flagship programs: the Birmingham Conservatory for Classical Theatre and the Michael Langham Workshop for Classical Direction.
