Patricia Rivas was born and raised in Montreal, in a family that emigrated from Uruguay. She holds a Master’s degree in Arts History and for the past few years has been devoting herself more to writing for the theater.
In 2017, she wrote and performed the monologue J’suis jamais malade en été d’habitude, which is anchored on the story of the arrival of her multiple sclerosis diagnosis. Then, she wrote the second draft of Fragments d’Ana, a quasi-monologue that addresses what it can be like to live with Alzheimer’s. Currently, she is working on the dramaturgy of a children’s play about single parenthood.
