Leon Rogissart (1995) is a Belgian theatre director. He graduated from the Theatre Directing programme at the Academy of Theatre and Dance in Amsterdam in 2021. For him, the theatre is the ultimate place to create a collective experience where intuition and resonance outstrip everything else. Alongside theatre, music and virtual reality (VR) are also key cornerstones of his work. The combination of the three give him the opportunity as a director to unravel abstraction in reality, and to deconstruct the concept of time. In 2021, Leon, together with his colleague Paul Boereboom, received the award for best VR production at the KABOOM Festival in Utrecht with the VR prototype Ascension.
