Steph VF was born in Santa Marta, Colombia and immigrated to the United States in 2007. They left Colombia in 1998, at a very young age, but that didn’t stop Colombia from coming along with them wherever they went. From their mamí’s arepas de huevo to the Saturday morning cleaning ritual and of course, the music that got you dancing… and cleaning, que no se te olvide! But Colombia and its spirit was also in the countless communities and people that shared the same values and made them feel at home.
Robi Rob’s Boriqua Anthem: A Sketch Variety Show is a love letter to the Latino people, music, food and experiences that have felt like home away from home. The new families and communities built on shared love for its languages, cultures and people. Borders don’t divide us, we can all come together over a plato de arroz con pollo and find that we have a lot in common with each other. And the things that are different are worth sharing and celebrating.
Since moving to Austin in 2018, Steph VF has been fortunate to work on projects that ignite their spirit like Super Black (Fallout Theater) and Angola (Coldtowne Theater), with Teatro Vivo, and the Paramount Story Wranglers and many talented collaborators with beautiful experiences and stories to share.
Currently, Steph is performing in Fuck This Week and Good Fight and teaching improv classes, all at Fallout Theater.
