Alie Rutty is an interdisciplinary artist and performer from Toronto, Ontario. Using photography, film, and improvisational theatre, her work often explores ideas of human relationships, and our interactions with physical media and spaces. She enjoys collaborating with her subjects, as well as constructing her own miniature worlds. She has a passion (and a talent) for bringing people together through art. As a performer and a creator, she seeks to merge her eclectic interests and background to create new and engaging interdisciplinary work.
