What's she got to do with the Secret Theatres festival?
Alison has designed the 'Mask of Orpheus' production which opens the 'Secret Theatres' festival at The Royal Festival Hall. She comments on the influence that Birtwistle's music has on her as a designer and the ways that she has found of drawing themes from his music and utilising them in the productions. Watch out in the production for a watery version of 'The Arches' - the structural device for the second act of 'The Mask of Orpheus'!
