Váli Theatre Lab
Váli Theatre Lab is a theatre company founded by Alice Occhiali and Valerio Peroni in 2019. Based in Holstebro, in residence at Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium-Odin Teatret.
Váli Theatre Lab produces performances and works in the pedagogical field for children, teenagers and adults. In Holstebro they collaborate with several institutions such as kindergardens, primary schools, high schools, elderly carehouse and so on.
The two founders are actors, directors and pedagogues. Coming from two different professional paths, they met each other in 2013, while working together at the international theatre company “Altamira Studio Teater”, in residence at Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium-Odin Teatret in Holstebro (Denmark). For this theatre company they worked three years, taking part in different activities including: street performances, site-specific performances, theatre concerts, organisation of private and public theatre events, community theatre, organisation and leading of theatre workshops. In 2016, they left the group Altamira Studio Teater and started together an independent path together in Italy. From 2016 they start to collaborate with international theatre groups and institutions in Italy, Denmark, Germany, France, Poland, working as actors, organising and directing site-specific shows, theatre shows and theatre workshops.
From 2018 they start a new collaboration with Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium-Odin Teatret and from 2019 they decide to base their work in Holstebro under the name of Váli Theatre Lab.
