Órion Lalli - DRT 47.355/RJ



Órion Lalli is a political activist (recognized by Front Line Defenders) performer, visual artist and professional actor with theatrical background and experience in the research field of performing arts. Since 2005, his research has focus on the intersection and influences between Dance-Theater and Performance Art. 

In 2020, he was censured by the brazilian government, chased and had his life threatened. Lalli was charged as a criminal for "Religious Vilification" by deputies of Bolsonaro´s political party .

In 2021 he was part of the webinar: "Speaking Truth to Power: Religious or Belief Minority Artists, Voice and Protest" organized by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and Danish organization FREEMUSE.

2021 he participated to the Safe Havens Conference  organised by Safe Havens (SH|FT) and Freedom Talks 


After this event, the threats intensified and he had to leave Brazil to ask for political asylum. Since 2022 he is recognized as a political refugee by the French government. 

His work is primarly documentary, mainly developed from the experiences of his own body and its dialogue through different languages, such as spectacles, performances, videos, sculptures, photographs, and installations in search of a direct interchange with today's modus operands. 

He is the founder and director of Grupo Tarto de Teatro, which works through different languages such as street theater, performance, children and adult shows, corporate theater and workshops for art educators, performing in countries like Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Chile.


One of his main productions is the show "Part-ir do Corpo" that talks about the LBGTQIA+ deaths in Brazil governed by Jair Bolsonaro. Directed by him, the production received 11 nominations and 6 awards including: Best Choreography, Best Lighting, Best Direction, Best Scenography, Best Actress and Best Show, at Festival de Teatro de Salto/SP, with Grupo Tarto de Teatro.


At the Faculty of Communication Arts and Design (FCAD) in São Paulo, he starts his scientific research, "(Per) Forming - The search for corporeal knowledge in the state of Being", thus creating the "Residência Per(for)m Artistas", a monthly meeting for artistic sharing.


At the Celia Helena Arts Center in São Paulo, he starts another scientific research "Looking over the eye that looks at nothing - A view on blindness", where he proposes a show for non-sighted people about indigenous legends.


Since 2018 he has been developing the project EM.COITROS, encounters of a body living with HIV, where he delves into his body and the unraveling about HIV/AIDS and the possible relationships with performances and art installations, a dialogue about public policies in the field of arts. 


Órion has worked with great names such as Ismael Ivo, Isaac Karabtchevsky, Marcelo Lombardero, Roger Honeywell, Hector Guedes, Leonardo Neiva, Janaína Leite, Alex Neoral, Ligia Cortez among other great artists in theater, music, dance and performance.
