Valerie Oliveiro is an artist born in Singapore and based in Minneapolis, MN. She is a performance maker, performance, lighting designer, photographer and manager.
She has performed for Jennifer Monson, Morgan Thorson, Rosy Simas, Pramila Vasudevan and Emily Gastineau in the Twin Cities as well as at national venues such as Danspace, New York Live Arts, Portland Art Museum, BASE Seattle, ADI and Maui Arts and Cultural Center. She maintains a long-term creative practice with Jennifer Monson.
Her lighting design work includes her own site-based visual installations as well as performance collaborations with Deke Weaver, Alanna Morris Van-Tassel, Pramila Vasudevan, Rosy Simas and Eric Larson – much of this work has occurred at non-traditional performance sites.
Her performance work “The Standard” premiered in June 2019 as part of Red Eye Theater’s New Works 4 Weeks Festival. The work researched agreements, togetherness and distance while also situating dance, writing photography, design and drawing as companion expressions while interrogating the work’s interests.
