After a sold-out run in December 2008, multidisciplinary cirque artist Victoria Thierrée Chaplin returns to A.R.T. to again direct the heralded production that features her daughter, Aurélia Thierrée. Aurélia's Oratorio has been announced to run July 22-Aug. 2 at the Loeb Drama Center.
Victoria Thierrée Chaplin, the daughter of Charlie Chaplin and Oona Chaplin O'Neill, co-created the music hall and circus-inspired piece with her daughter, Aurélia Thierrée. The production also stars Jaime Martinez.
"Behind the red velvet curtain lies a topsy-turvy world of surreal surprises, tricks, and transformations, where dreams come to life and the impossible happens before your very eyes..." read press notes for Aurélia’s Oratorio.
Victoria Thierrée Chaplin has collaborated with her son, James Thierrée, on the design and costumes for his productions Junebug Symphony, La Viellée des Abysses and Au Revoir Parapluie, which received acclaimed stagings at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Aurélia’s Oratorio is her latest creation.
Aurélia Thierrée began her career performing in Le Cirque Imaginaire and Le Cirque Invisible. She has toured with the Tiger Lillies in The Tiger Lillies Circus and worked with film artists including Milos Forman, Coline Serreau and Jacques Baratier.
