Swipe to view
"As part of the Linbury prize I was placed with Anna Fleischle, working on a new musical of The Time Traveller’s Wife as her Associate. Anna has been really supportive throughout my time working with her, but also trusted me to take the reins and help drive projects forward, giving me the opportunity to be involved in every aspect of the design process. The placement has been so successful that I have been working with Anna as her Associate almost full-time ever since on many different exciting projects across theatre, ballet and opera. As an early career designer, the experience has been invaluable and I have learnt so much from being involved in Anna’s design process."
