About

Victoria is Artistic Director of Terra Incognita Arts, an organisation that uses theatre and the arts to share the extraordinary stories of ordinary people.
The organisation is currently working on Invisible Army, a touring theatre production that tells the remarkable story of Robbie, a fifteen year old boy who cares for his mum, has to get to the shops and back before school starts, and is worried he's turning invisible. Invisible Army is created in collaboration with Glasgow South West Carers Centre and will tour Scotland in October 2016.
Terra Incognita is also working with it's As I see it group to create two new walking tours of Glasgow - these tours, led by adults with visual impairments, combine historical fact with personal stories and memories to offer a unique insight into the local area.
Most recently Victoria wrote and performed My Friend Selma (Terra Incognita Arts), a storytelling performance for ages 8+ that toured theatres, schools and museums across Scotland. She also directed Amy Conway's 30:60:80, and is currently working with A Moments Peace on Privilege, which will culminate in a performance and exhibition at Platform Theatre in April 2016.
