Putting on a production is more than getting the right dancers and choreographers in place. Set, Costume, Lighting and Sound all play a valuable role in both supporting the vision and increasing the context for your work. In our Design for Dance series we've partnered with Junk Ensemble, to present four workshops with the creative team of their new work to give you a closer insight into these elements.

Sabine will begin by speaking about her work as set designer, explaining the specificities of working for dance or physical theatre.

She will then discuss her experiences in dance, speaking about Swan and the process for creating the set for Michael Keegan-Dolan and explain the process Soldier Still.

This will be a combination of talk and photos, finishing with a Q & A.
