Her work has been staged at some of the most important venues in Brazil and in recent years she has been celebrated as one of the best playwrights of her generation.

Michelle has been nominated for several awards in Brazil, including the Prêmio Shell (the most important theatre award in Brazil) and the Prêmio Luso Brasileiro de Dramaturgia.
