Antoinette LaVecchia 57m · Rest In Peace dear Giuseppe (Joe Joseph Siravo) I treasure our last visit together a couple of years ago on your beautiful rooftop. I brought you meatballs and you masterfully regaled me with epic stories and before we parted, you shared sweet and tender feelings. And I left just after the sun had set. Perfetto like you. Ci vediamo caro amico
Early this morning Joseph Siravo passed quietly away from this earth. He was my dearest friend and confidant, my colleague, my co-conspirator, my teaching partner and mentor for 30 years.
Joe is ingrained in our Lucid Body community, not only for bringing Shakespeare into the House and creating with me my favorite class to teach, The Lucid Shakespeare and Beyond. But also because when I was emerging out of the dance world, he gave me an entrance with a confident hand into the theatre world. He believed in me. He believed in my work. He introduced me to all he knew.
The Lucid Body was able to be born because of his support.
Please join me today in lighting a candle and blessing him as he transitions to a new realm which will certainly be adorned with Shakespeare as soon as he arrives, whether they want it or not.
Fly high, my friend.

This is very sad news. He was a passionate and supportive teacher. I always felt he loved to be in class with us. 💔🎭
I’m so sorry, Fay. I was lucky enough to know the brilliance and sensitivity that Joe brought into every room. I am thinking of you and all who loved him. His legacy lives on.
So sorry this happened.
I worked qith Joe and then took your class .
Was this covid related?
Or the orher C?
What a dear he was.
I was in college and a summer directing apprentice at New York Stage and Film. I had the opportunity to be one of a trio of assistants to Max Mayer as he directed Dark Rapture by Eric Overmyer, a theatre noir that featured an insanely wonderful cast led by Frances McDormand and David Strathairn. It also included Joseph Siravo, Dan Moran, and Bruce Macvittie who had a shake-down scene together that I know today would be beyond offensive but at the time, thanks to those actors, filled everyone in the room with the greatest magnitude of giddy delight. I overlapped paths with Joe only two other times over the next 30 years, which is kind of amazing given the small world of NYC theatre, but his work in that show gave me a surge of rocket fuel for this art form that lives on. I’m sad that I’ll never get a chance to thank him in person.
