Bio
Opera del Espacio began as a collective of performing artists and designers focused on site-specific work in order to reveal new possibilities in public spaces by physically responding to the environment. Informed by Mary Overlie’s Viewpoints, we begin with the architectural definitions of the space and then incorporate the symbolic, associative and emotional responses to the space. The initial exploration of the outdoor or indoor space often begins with quotidian movement and shape then expands into a shared group vocabulary. Purposely brought to the community to create a live, interactive and re-envisioned experience, our goal has been to challenge our audiences to reevaluate the way they view the world around them. Over time, we have expanded to creating new interdisciplinary works that are further developed outside of the spaces where they were first generated, presenting unique site-generated performances. And, although the work is created out of the postmodern aesthetics of deconstructionism and minimalism, it is intended for the audience to be accessible, interesting, entertaining and often, interactive.

New works and performances include: I’ve Fallen/Clap Off! at Highways Performance Space; The Way Of Water by Caridad Svich at Cal State LA, Bootleg Theatre, Cal Poly Pomona, Hollywood Fringe and South Coast Rep’s SCRamble; Meet Me @ Metro II and III ; Space: The Final Frontier presented at SOSE as part of the Company Creation Festival; Private in Public for the SoCal Dance Invitational Concert and the World Dance Alliance-Americas in Honolulu; Triple [Inter]sect at Highways Performance Space; multiple site-specific performances at the desert ruins at Llano del Rio, Downtown Art Walk, Brewery Art Walk, Echo Park Art Walk, The Series at the Standard and more.
