Unusual Projects
Peter Brook Quote.jpg

As live theatre can happen anywhere we are often asked to advise on unusual projects. Examples of this include a demountable (pop-up) theatre based on the historical Rose Theatre for the Royal Shakespeare Company. We also have extensive experience of creating highly serviced ‘empty spaces‘ within which a variety of very different auditoria can be created. 

 

Another great example is Flip's work at the new Waterfront Theatre for The Esplanade Theatre Company in Singapore. The new auditorium provides flexible seating formats of varying scales.

 

Flip is also currently the Project Manager for The Reel Store; an immersive digital exhibition venue and flagship for Coventry City of Culture 2021.
