Vittoria Orlando is a designer, assistant designer, and collaborator based in NYC.
She gravitates toward creating work that explores the real, the fantastical, and a conversation between the two. Art that speaks to her most puts a hyperbole on life and escapes from it, while inciting meaningful conversation in its audience. Vittoria is interested in creating art that challenges conventional methods of storytelling and uses imaginative solutions to achieve a design. She is passionate about sustainable and equitable labor practices in our industry.
Her work has been shown at The Public - Under the Radar, Ars Nova, Repertorio Español, NYU, ART/NY, Brooklyn Children's Museum, Culture Lab LIC, Fordham University, the Ailey CitiGroup Theater, Dixon Place, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the UK.
When she's not working, Vittoria enjoys spending time with her family and friends, watercolor painting, and taking care of the only plant she's ever managed to keep alive - Emerson the Aloe
Vittoria holds a BA in Theatre Design and Production, and a BA in Visual Art, from Fordham University. She also has experience as an Electrics Apprentice at the Santa Fe Opera.
