Creation & direction
Idit Herman is a creator, director and designer. She co-founded Clipa Theater for which she has created over 50 original productions in Israel and abroad, varying from solo performance to large scale immersive work in theaters, museums, public space and more. Her recent work shows a conscious shift from using an exaggeration of set, props, costumes, light and sound to obtain total control of the audience experience, towards creating mobile and minimalist concepts that result in a maximum effect for the often participating viewer.
