Biography :

Was born in Brooklyn, New York. She lived there only a few months before her family began commuting from North to South America, mainly to her parents’ native Chile. At the age of seven, she auditioned for El Conservatorio Nacional de Chile. “We had to pretend we were playing with a balloon, and we were half naked” she recalls. Amongst hundreds of children, she was accepted. She has been surrounded by music and art her entire life; her father a jazz musician as well as a scientist, her mother and grandmother poets. By the time she was ten years old, she had begun directing and acting in vignettes for her community. Her long time dream has been to merge acting and dancing in a unique way. For this reason, she choreographed a theatre/dance piece entitled Beatriz the Homneless Dancer in 1998. She has toured nationally with Repertorio Español, performing a Federico Garcia Lorca play, as well as with Cirque Ingenieux, playing Queen of the Underworld. Besides this, she has acted in several independent films, TV productions and commercials, and received excellent reviews for her portrayal of Paulina Salas in Death and the Maiden at the Danbury Repertory Theatre. In addition to being an accomplished stage actress, Ms Tejeda Rieloff performs regularly as a Brazilian sambista. For many years, she toured the West Coast with Escola do Samba Batucaje. Her credits include the Monterey Jazz Festival, New Year’s Eve at the Rainbow Room and Windows on the World, and, her favorite, Bette Midle’s 50th Birthday Party.
