Alice in Winterland – Rose Theatre 2017

★★★★★ Surrey Magazine
★★★★ The Times
★★★★ Love London Love Culture
★★★★ Essential Surrey

“The impressive set is almost entirely made up of a staircase and beautiful, colourful, wonderfully inventive projections” ★★★★ London Theatre 1

“Dan Denton’s video design; full of moving cogs and technical artistry, it transforms the wintery Wonderland into a shifting and unpredictable canopy.” ★★★★ Whatsonstage

Sukanya – Royal Opera House 2017

“Molly Einchomb’s triple-staircase set is backed by a huge white scrim that’s kept busy with inventive video imagery by 59 Productions, so as theatre the show is more total than partial. However, the effect, like the music, is not easy to describe. Best go see for yourself.” ★★★★ What’s on Stage

“In Suba Das’s semi-staging a staircase broad enough to dance upon rises from amidst the musicians, while video projections sweep the story seamlessly between the world of the Mahabharata and the present day.” ★★★★ Birmingham Post

★★★★ The Telegraph

“With minimal but evocative designs by 59 Productions, the semi-staging was a visual treat. [..] Projected backdrops of misty wooded landscapes, palaces and sunsets captured the heat and mystery of India.” The Observer

“Ravi Shankar wrote this, his only opera, when he was 90 [..] This is the work of a dying man reaffirming his delight in life and love, music and spectacle [..] Suba Das stages it on an imposing temple staircase, with an esoteric and sometimes bemusing range of videos projected onto a backcloth: everything from a starry night sky to what seems like a giant fishtank.” The Times

The Wind in the Willows – Rose Theatre 2016

"Timothy Bird’s simple set design is effortlessly transformed from The Riverbank to Badger’s set to Toad Hall and so on with brilliant projections. "
★★★★★ TimeOut London

“But the most magical element in this captivating show is surely Timothy Bird’s projections, which shimmer over his clever wooden set of trapdoors and twisting trees. With the wave of a narrator’s hand, Bird conjures a swirling river, a tumble of autumn leaves, a rickety bridge, or the magnificent Toad Hall. The effect is repeatedly breathtaking.”
★★★★ What’s on Stage

“Timothy Bird’s smart set shows impressive gnarled wooden branches creating a high canopy over the stage, but it is his use of projection, combined with Aideen Malone’s lighting, that makes this production magical.”
