Covid-19 has been completely crushing to our theatre and events industry, but 2020 also brought in huge success of an Olivier award for a current show of Cecilia’s, Baby Reindeer, by Richard Gadd. Once theatre revives, the show will head back to London’s West End and New York’s Broadway, to continue captivating new audiences. Another commission last year, with Opera North, retelling Dr. Seuss’s ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ in opera form for 3-7 year olds also sadly had it’s life cut short by the pandemic, but we hope it will revive in digital form soon as it had a profound and magical effect on those young people who did see performances.
From a Graphic Design background, Cecilia went on to train at the Motley Theatre Design Course and her work since then has covered a broad spectrum, from site specific performances and traditional theatre to live events, installations and several unique projects for Health settings. Projects include The Snow Queen (The Sherman Theatre) dir Tessa Walker, Jekyll & Hyde (Birmingham Rep Theatre) dir Tessa Walker, Tidy Up (Peut-Etre and Gt. Ormond Street Hospital), Four Realms of Christmas (Westfield immersive for Disney), Consensual (Soho theatre) dir Pia Furtado, Crimp 1, 2, 3 & 4 (Guildhall) dir. Chris Kelham, ‘Vicky’s Place’ (re-design of an Oncology ward at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital) Vital Arts, Beyond the Waterfall (Bompas & Parr).
During this turbulent time she waits for projects that were in early stages, to be able to continue, but is also currently being active by using her 3D spacial skills and love of scenic painting for new commissions: designing and executing interior murals in domestic settings.
