Why Don’t We Do It In The Road is based within Vida’s own personal experience of creating theatre in the streets, squares, parks, villages, buses, hospitals, churches and even mountains. Although a personal experience, it is one that is embedded in the firm belief that art should be created collectively.

The opportunity to publish these thoughts and practical exercises came when Ljud was invited by the RIOTE (Rural Inclusive Outdoor Theatre Education) partnership to prepare a “practical guide to creating outdoor theatre” as part of the international project RIOTE 2. The result of which led to Why Don’t We Do It In The Road.
