Gillian Lees

Gillian Lees is Co-Artistic Director of Proto-type Theater. Proto-type are a company of multi-disciplinary Artists lead by Rachel Baynton, Gillian Lees and Andrew Westerside. They create original performance work that is diverse in scale, subject and medium. Recently this has included touring theatre works A Machine they’re Secretly Building & The Audit (or Iceland, a modern myth), from their politically driven ‘Truth to Power’ trilogy, a two-week long theatrical experience using pervasive technologies, a multi-media concert-performance featuring a live laptop orchestra and bespoke animation and a radio drama in collaboration with the BBC (The Forgotten Suffragette). Gillian has worked with the company since their move from the US to the UK in 2006. She is an Associate Artist with Sheffield-based theatre company Third Angel, a freelance performer and regular collaborator with Visual Artist Adam York Gregory.
