Created in response to DePaul Art Museum’s exhibition Selva Aparicio: In Memory Of, Memo is a site-specific performance that explores privacy, secrets, and intimate moments in the context of ordinary household life. How do the walls of a home free us? Constrain us? Hold us? From the everyday absurdities of sharing space to the quick flares of family tempers, Memo invites audiences to join artists from The Theatre School, School of Music, and DePaul Art Museum in a unique look at who we are when we are not quite alone.

With DePaul student-developed and performed theatrical vignettes set to student-composed music, made in response to Chicago-based artist Selva Aparicio’s artworks, this run marks the first collaboration between three of the DePaul Fullerton Arts Corridor departments. Theatrical performances have been directed by The Theatre School’s Professor Toranika Washington with musical guidance from the School of Music’s Assistant Professor Osnat Netzer as part of The Learning Studio museum education initiative with Jim Duignan of DePaul’s College of Education for DPAM.​
