Selection of Set

Designs

As a theatre designer and performance maker I am interested in the intersection between different diciplines and practices. I have chosen to work across a broard section of the performing arts: new writing, poetry, classics, adapted novels, performance art, opera, street theatre, participatory theatre, dance and circus, in transitory or purpose built spaces, intimate and larger venues.
