ARTISTIC DIRECTOR VALLEY LIPPER
Valley Lipcer, Roundabout Theatre Artistic director has been developing immersive and participatory theatre for young audiences for over 25 years, exploring how theatre can inhabit, enliven and respond to public spaces, how audience agency can be meaningfully built into a show and how shows can become ‘worlds’ that can leave a legacy beyond the experience of the show.
For all of her projects she employs the same rigorous design process in world building, experience mapping and dramaturgy. She has also worked as a freelance theatre director, a festival director ( Shine, Falls Festival Arts Village, Arty Party) a creative producer ( NORPA, National Circus Festival, Spaghetti Circus) and a touring street theatre performer ( Strange Fruit, Snuff Puppets ).
