Vicki Weitz

For Frequency Theatre: ACTOR ~ DIRECTOR

Vicki has been working as a live artist since 2005. As part of Live Art Collective East (LACE), Vicki was a runner-up for The Olympic Artist Taking the Lead project. Encouraged by the Arts Council, LACE applied for and received funding to create eight live art projects in the region in the build up to the Olympics. Vicki was part of the research and development team for both bids and is now working on one of the eight projects: Three Step Endeavour, which celebrates the simple joy of temporarily leaving the ground beneath your feet.

As a solo artist, Vicki has created and performed live art pieces at a variety of places in the region, including Colchester, Cambridge, Luton, Ipswich and Chelmsford.

Vicki works as an actor with Father Hen Theatre Company, based in Colchester. Father Hen aims to approach text with a non-rational way, keeping the interpretation open, fluid and playful.

Vicki also works as a freelance practitioner at The Mercury Theatre in Colchester, running drama workshops for a variety of groups, ranging from toddlers and parents to the Over 50 group.

Vicki is also a Clown Doctor with Suffolk Artlink, working in local hospitals to help children deal with fear, anxiety and boredom.
