Dr. Schlueter is a performance maker motivated by a fascination with the limits and possibilities of the archive, and the challenges to fair use, copyright, and creative transformation that this work can engender. Her creative works, many of which transform found text into performance events, have been produced at the Little Theatre (Seattle), Cleveland Public Theatre, LexArts, American Theater Company (Chicago), Kranzberg Center (St. Louis), Grandstreet Theatre (Helena), Available Light Theatre (Columbus), the Wexner Center for the Arts, the Columbus Museum of Art, Tristan Bates (London), Off Broadway at 59E59 Theaters, and on BBC Radio 4. She was named an Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award winner for FY 2019. Prior to coming to CCAD, Schlueter was an Associate Professor at Ohio State University, where she founded and produced The Lab Series, a student-driven, department-nurtured performance research laboratory. There, she also served as a Project Director for the Social Change, Community Engagement, and Creative Practices Discovery Theme and a Faculty Fellow in Curriculum at the Graduate School. She serves as a board member for the Mid America College Art Association. For more information, including material on her published scholarship and teaching awards, visit
