ABOUT

Grace is a freelance performance designer and facilitator with bases in London and Norfolk. She undertook a full-time residency in the National Theatre's Max Rayne design studio from 2018-2019.

 

In 2019 Grace was a finalist for the JMK Award with Jocelyn Cox, and for the inaugural Naomi Wilkinson Award for Stage Design with Told by an Idiot.

 

Grace graduated with a First Class BA (Hons) in Design for Performance from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2017. She is a contributor for Blue Pages, the Society of British Theatre Designer's journal.

"Theatre makes us less alone. It brings us together and it shares stories.

 

Design has an under-appreciated yet crucial voice in these stories. I have a particular interest in the role of performance design in climate, class, race, disability and queer politics. Sustainability is a key concern in my practice. 

 

I love community, collaboration and the sea."
