“It made me aware of how important it is to be part of a creative community, to support others and help them to develop their skills and to shine. Winning the Linbury has definitely been a career‑changing experience. And now I feel I have the responsibility to return that favour to the audience by trying my best to raise standards in theatre design.”

Ana Ines Jabares, Designer

Ana Inés Jabares-Pita is an Designer, Artist and Director.

Her work is eclectic. She is fascinated by new technologies and materials, lighting as well as traditional illusion technics. She is interested in blurring boundaries between artistic disciplines as well as creating fully sensorial experiences in which the audience can immerse. She also has an extensive grounding in music which kick-started my love and appreciation of Opera and Live Music Performance from a young age.

She has work with some of the most prestigious companies in the UK, such as English National Opera, Royal Court Theatre, Young Vic, Royal Shakespeare Company, Headlong, Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Royal Lyceum, Gate Theatre, National Theatre of Scotland and art galleries such as Dulwich Picture Gallery and the V&A Museum. She has also worked internationally in Italy, Denmark, Germany, Canada, Spain, Australia and the US.

Ana Inés' work has received multiple awards and nominations including Overall Winner of the Linbury Prize for Stage Design 2013 for her design of The Driver's Seat for the National Theatre of Scotland which included set, costume and video. In 2014 she became a Jerwood Young Designer for my work Idomeneus which was selected by the V&A in London to become part of their archive. In 2015, she won HECHOS DE TALENTO becoming the ambassador of Spanish Design in some of the most emblematic places all over the world, among them Picadilly Circus and Times Square in NY.
