As the director of Ghost Mountain Ghost Shovel for ten years, Val Lee have been employing a poetic constellation of action script, installation, sound, hypnotic rhetoric, composite structure, mise-en-scène, and space to construct ephemeral situations.
Current works focus on urban violence, political turmoil, body memories of unusual states, abstruse historical reenactment, and diversified modes of psychological absorption and participation for the public and audiences.
Val is developing Murmuration, a lecture performance that builds a poetic narrative that is between fiction and reality; that is novel yet has established scientific facts and sociological and political ideas. The narrative begins with bizarre group behavior of animals and dive into themes of societal decisions, human violence, and how invisible forces form our perception of the world around us.
