The Clipa Theatre was established in 1995 in Tel Aviv by Israeli dancer and director Idit Herman and Russian actor/creator/musician Dmitry Tyulpanov. Their encounter and partnership led to the emergence of a unique theatrical language, interweaving the arts of theatre, dance, design and music. The theatrical style synonymous with Clipa is characterized by totally encompassing each and every element of the performance. It entails absolute knowledge and command of all the elements of creation: movement, space, costume, set, sound, lighting and direction. In the group’s work, these components are fundamental tools of expression, alongside the performer’s action on stage.
