  • By Friedrich Durrenmatt, translated by Maurice Valency, directed by Cole Lewis

Clelia Scala is a visual artist whose work includes mask and puppet design, installations, collage, and illustration. Her work explores the fantastic and uncanny, stemming from a lifelong engagement with tales and myths and her interest in the theme of human interaction with the natural world. As a designer and fabricator for theatre, Clelia has worked with theatre companies and institutions such as Carousel Players, Geordie Theatre, Guilty by Association, Lemon Bucket Orkestra, Odyssey Theatre, Queen’s University, Suitcase in Point, Theatre Kingston, University of Missouri-St Louis Opera Theatre, Yale University, and Zacadia Circus. Clelia’s visual art has been shown in galleries in Canada and the United States and is in private collections across North America. Clelia is the recipient of the 2019 Established Artist Award for the City of St Catharines. Her work has been supported by the Ontario Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Kingston Arts Council, and the St Catharines Cultural Investment Program (with Puppet-A-Go-Go). She teaches theatre, mask, and puppet design at the Dan School of Drama & Music at Queen’s University.
