Aurelia is the talented daughter of Victoria Thierrée Chaplin, the celebrated British circus performer, and one-half of the creative team behind the legendary Le Cirque Invisible.
Aurelia's Oratorio was dream-like, whimsical, and mysterious. I remember afterwards being inspired by the show to work on the Suitcase of Wonders, which at that time was sadly languishing is somewhat disrepair in my basement. The show gave me fresh inspiration for new creative ideas, perhaps even indirectly attributing to my giving the Suitcase a pair of drawers based on seeing Mme Thierrée perform the magical Chest of Drawers vignette.
