María Bacardí is an actress, singer and  artist.

She is the founder the Oddfellows Playhouse, a not-for-profit theatre enterprise with a mission to extend the meaning of theatre beyond existing expectations and create an environment for the active participation of artists of all ages and diverse talents from the Hamptons. Unencumbered by the responsibilities of a permanent home and a year-round staff, Oddfellows has produced many original plays at numerous venues in the Hamptons.

She is the founder and honorary co-chair of the Community Fellows of Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center, where she spearhead a multitude of theatrical workshops involving the East End youth. Informing this work is her Bachelor’s Degree of Arts from New York University in Drama Therapy and Psychodrama.

In the past thirty years, she has acted numerous roles in many theater productions in New York City and as well as in the Hamptons.

As a singer, she has recorded two albums DESEO and DUELE – which explore her Cuban roots – and she is in the process of working on further musical original creations, imbued with international flavors.

As a visual artist, she creates box assemblages with found objects and semi-objects, pigments, surfaces and paints, which are small stages where fragments of drama crystallize into fine-tuned emotional optic sentences. A dynamic tête-à-tête is suggested between symbols inside the boxes which give a visual voice to lyrical phrases. Her boxes have exhibited in a multitude of galleries in the Hamptons and are included in the collection of many collectors around the world.
