Project Description

BIANCA O’NEILL

Bianca’s motto is “Go large or go home”. She’s a firm believer that you should be passionate about your career, people and every endeavor you take on, and she aims to be a living example. While obtaining her BA (Hons) drama degree at the University of Pretoria, she specialized in acting, writing, directing and took a particular interest in work-shopping.

Bianca is a natural on both stage and screen. She earned her colours performing in various productions notably, “Amadeus”, “Macbeth” (dir. Estelle Zeeman), “The Crucible” (dir. Pieter Brandt), “Konfetti” (Children’s Theatre) to name a few. She’s acted in various independent short films and even entered short film competitions. Her versatility afforded her a range of roles from comedy, mock-umentary and even action.

She broadened her repertoire by taking part in Industrial Theatre and Theatre for Education, performing in prisons, lecturing in Education in Arts and she completed an internship in Performance Management through the Department of Sports, Arts, Culture, and Recreation and The Market Theatre. She’s also been involved in Development Theatre as a facilitator and judge at the 2010 Ishashalazi Theatre Festival. Bianca’s versatility earned her the lead in “Who killed Change?” – a Corporate Theatre and Video Production for ABSA bank.

Bianca,in 2012 entered the world behind the camera and ventured into producing and writing. Even though she is a few years in this journey, her future looks bright. Her company Purple Tulips has co-produced over the last few years several theatre and film productions, namely, “Knock Knock…Who’s There?” (2012), “A-Minor” (2012), “Nigh” (2013), “The Jewel of Is” (2013), and “TERA” (2014). Bianca expanded her roles and character diversity in these films as Bianca not only stared in these productions but also in many others, one, which is the upcoming comedy feature, “Had Better Days” (2015). Bianca was also head researcher and one of the writers for the 6th season children’s educational show on SABC2 called “Rivoningo” (2014).
