Director Biography - Marcelina Chavira

Marcelina was conceived during a ham fueled moment of passion over an Easter Holiday weekend in Eagle Pass, Texas. She spent her formative years in Dallas scaring her friends’ very conservative and very white parents by proclaiming that Jesus is Black and God is a woman. At Bryn Mawr College she studied dance and anthropology. Shortly thereafter she received an MA from NYU in Performance Studies. Both her undergraduate and graduate work focused on the performance of identity and ethnicity and post-colonial theory. She then decided against a Ph.D. and moved to L.A. to become a cartoon.

But cartoons are not real. So she resigned herself to voice over and has since found a wonderful home in sketch comedy. Marcelina is constantly writing for and performing with the all women of color sketch team The BAE*GENCY, The Pack Theater house sketch team Friendo, and the all Latinx sketch team The Latinx Comedy Pachanga.

Marcelina's pilot, MACHO LIBRE, was included on The Black List’s inaugural Latinx TV List. Most recently, she wrote on Netflix's Super Giant Robot Brothers, debuting in Spring 2022.

Marcelina is a visual artist as well. She frequently makes elaborate props and costumes, mostly out of cardboard, for sketch and theater. She has worked as Art Director for a DreamWorks web series for tweens and a series of short web commercials for Bauhaus (the Swedish equivalent of Home Depot).
