Adriana's personal work explores power dynamics, grief and loss, and the performance of gender and identity. They are inspired by the line between performance and reality, and uses performance as a tool to inform the creation of the work and act as a guide for the audience during their experience viewing it. They enjoy the interactive and collaborative nature of working with live subjects, and places great emphasis on creating an immersive experience both during creation and viewing of the work.
