Kip Chapman - This bloody schedule
Kip Chapman is an actor, playwright and director who is having a very busy 2017. He directs That Bloody Woman, a rock opera about Kate Sheppard, and is also the co-creator, writer and director of Hudson and Halls Live! Both shows are touring the country currently and will also play a the Nelson and Tauranga Arts Festival (That Bloody Woman will also play the Napier Arts Festival). Chapman is also creative director of this year's World of Wearable Art. He's had acting roles in Top of the Lake and the Toa Fraser feature film 6 Days. Chapman believes some established New Zealand theatres do not cater enough to young audiences and has committed himself to rectifying what he sees as this imbalance.
