    I’ve been back in America this week, lighting Mr Popper’s Penguins at Minneapolis Children’s Theatre. It’s been a great experience, and the Penguins are as well received here as before in New York, Seattle and London. Thanks to Peter C.

  • Just a few quick photos left over from my first design on the main stage at Sadler’s Wells last month. I was lucky enough to work with Akram Khan and Sandeep Virdee and some amazing Indian choreographers on two nights of dance as part of the Darbar Festival 2018. A significant part of the lighting design was using an installation […]

  • Just a bit different this week, as we present The Play that Goes Wrong on a thrust stage (for only the second time in my memory * ) at Chichester Festival Theatre. Obviously for a show with a fixed back wall that provides something of a challenge, but luckily Alan Bartlett’s been planning for this date since the tour was announced. […]
