Jasmin Cardenas

The daughter of immigrant parents, Jasmin Cardenas is an award-winning Colombian American storyteller, actress, educator and social activist who explores the uncomfortable truths found when you grow up between cultures. Jasmin regularly tours her bilingual program which highlights lesser known folktales, myths, and legends from North, Central, and South America. She has performed at Steppenwolf and Goodman Theatres, and her television credits include appearances on Chicago Fire, The CHI, and Betrayal.  Fusing her love of performance with the need for raising social consciousness, she enjoys helping young people find solutions to real life problems, create a space for dialogue around issues of conflict, and create art that speaks to the needs of today’s world. “There are brilliant passages where Cardenas enthralls…. She is speaking the dialogue clearly in English but it feels like she is speaking in tongues.” Chicago Theater Beat
