I work with performance makers from initial discussion through to realisation and develop visual concepts through research, drawing, models and rehearsal mockups.
Boldness, lightness, expectation and surprise are important elements in my work and I enjoy working close to rehearsals in order to bring out designs that are integral to the piece, living and iconic.
I have independently of K A S P E R S O P H I E designed dance, theatre and circus and taught design and its relation to choreography at London Contemporary Dance School and The Danish National School of Performing Arts.
Alongside my practice I have worked as associate and assistant with some of the most esteemed UK designers today; Richard Hudson, Leslie Travers and Es Devlin on productions at among others La Scala, Bregenz, The Met, Royal Danish Ballet, The Bolshoi and Teatro Massimo.
