Cleo DeOrio, graduate of Lima Senior High School, will be in Lima to discuss her latest production, ‘CITIZENS OF NOWHERE’ on Wednesday, December 19th at ArtSpace/Lima, 65 Town Square, Lima, OH. Doors open at 7:30 pm. The original work was devised as part of her second year studies under the guidance and collaboration with Dell’Arte faculty members Sayda Trujillo and Laura Munoz. ArtSpace is happy to host the viewing of the work in their new film room as a fundraiser as the troupe makes their way to perform at the International University Theatre Festival in Mexico City.
Cleo DeOrio was a student at the Liberty Arts Magnet and graduated from Lima Senior High in 2012. She received a Bachelor’s of Arts at Baldwin Wallace University in Cleveland, Ohio, with a focus in Directing and Choreography. She is currently based in Humboldt County, California, as she completes a Masters degree at Dell’Arte International. Her work has been seen in shows such as BIG LOVE, Fyoo Zh En New Music and Dance ’14, ‘15, and ‘16, Around the World in 80 Days, and Citizens of Nowhere. Many of her works have premiered in Cleveland, including OHM, an original piece of movement, dance, music and text. More of Cleo’s work can be seen in the upcoming Dell’Arte season.
Dell’Arte International is a Theatre Conservatory in Blue Lake, CA. The school’s pedagogy is based on the ensemble devising process and the creation of completely original theatre and community based arts. The physical theatre study at Dell’Arte is based on the historic forms of Commedia Dell’Arte, comedy that began with 17th century Italy; Melodrama, an 18th century form of dramatic people’s theatre; and theatrical Clown, a Russian political form of comedy.
Here, Cleo and her ensemble have created works based in character development and physical play, based in styles such as family theatre, tragedy, as well as engaging the community as collaborators and inspiration for theatre.
