Meet Miami’s Teo Castellanos, who will join our theater faculty this summer:
Teo is an actor, writer, and director. He received his B.F.A. in theater from Florida Atlantic University, where he studied under full scholarship with four-time Tony Award-winner Zoe Caldwell. He is the author of NE 2nd Avenue, a one-man show based on Miami characters, commissioned by Miami Light Project. NE 2nd Avenue won the prestigious Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (Scotland) in 2003.
He is artistic director of Teo Castellanos D-Projects, a contemporary dance-theater company whose original work fuses world cultures, religion, and music, examining social issues through performance. The company has toured South America and China and is currently touring the U.S. with its latest work, “Scratch & Burn.”
Teo has lectured and taught workshops at colleges and universities and in communities throughout the United States and the Virgin Islands. He is currently the executive producer of Miami Project Hip Hop (MPH), an annual event produced by Miami Light Project that honors hip hop roots and aesthetics. He is the recipient of the 2005 State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowship.
We can’t wait for you to meet him!
