Visual Arts Residency
Natalia Lassalle-Morillo (B. Puerto Rico) is a theater artist, filmmaker, performer and visual artist. Melding theatrical performance, intuitive experimental ethnography, and collaborations with non-professional performers, Natalia’s practice centers on excavating imagined and archived history, decentralizing canonical narratives through embodied reenactments, and challenging the prioritization of written history by foregrounding instead the creation of new mythologies.
Natalia earned an MFA in Theatre Directing from CalArts and a BFA in Drama from the Experimental Theatre Wing at NYU. Residencies and fellowships include: Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, Amant Foundation (Brooklyn, NY), Mass Moca Studio Residency & Fonderie Darling in Montréal, QC. Her work is part of the KADIST collection, and her films, installations, & performances have been presented in museums, festivals, performance venues, and unconventional spaces, internationally. She teaches Film & Video at MICA.
