Salwa Dor Carmenaissa


Salwa is a Moroccan-born, US-raised (and now Prague-based) actress. Shortly after moving to Oxford, UK in 2008, she landed her first lead title role in the stage production of Federico Garcia Lorca's House of Bernarda Alba. She went on to train in London's Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, where she obtained an Acting Diploma in 2013, and played a lead in the college's production of Simon Stephens' Pornography (2012).


After relocating to the Czech Republic in 2014, Salwa debuted with Blood, Love & Rhetoric in Fernando Pessoa's Disquiet (2015), followed by Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House (2015) and Bertolt Brecht's The Irresistible Rise of Arturo Ui (2015). She has also appeared in short films and commercials.


Salwa is both a native English and French speaker (and speaks a few other languages rather poorly). Aside from acting she also dabbles in journalism and creative writing, and is extremely fond of having really long conversations about nothing.
