​PERICLES by William Shakespeare Director: Drew Mulligan Composer: James D. Reid Lighting Design: Jack Weir

Venue: The Drayton Theatre 2013


"So good are these four actors, and so well thought out is the production..." 

by Tristan White for R​emotegoat​

"Valentina Ricci’s punchy design - where a tweed jacket becomes a suit of armour and a transparent sheet the swirling folds of the ocean - makes everyday objects profound and beautiful."

by Sally Scott for The Stage​


 "With just a mere hint of scenery – sails and a few bits of rope dangling from the rafters –and some authentic and well-devised sound effects, one gets a real sense of atmosphere. (...) The costumes are modern with wigs, raincoats, duffle-coats etc. being the order of the day, and all fit perfectly with the ambience and the overall design." Peter Brown for Londontheatre.co.uk​

Devised Theatre

 IAB Institute of the  Arts, BA (Hons) Acting, Barcelona:

From 2017 I am teaching a Devised Theatre module at IAB. My work is based mainly on the Russian school (Stanislavski and Chekhov) but also resonates with the visual culture I have study and worked with.  Every project has a specific theme within which students are asked to find their own voice, work independently and collaboratively and create their own work. I have directed the workshop and the production of  "Alice in Wonderland", written and devised by Year 3 IAB, 2019
