Outdoor Theatre and Festivals
Here at Vortex we love the challenge of designing and making for an outdoor space from key costumes and props through to an entire set. Infinite possibilities are unleashed when you are working in infinite space!
we've created outdoor stage sets across fountains, wrapped and transformed statues in public squares (including a floozie in Jacuzzi), and showcased costumes in an array of settings including cathedral ruins, country houses, museums, art galleries, libraries, shopping centres, festival fields and played the streets!
Our client base includes Birmingham International Dance Festival, Bestival, Fantastic Fun with Words Festival, Imagineer Productions, Highly Sprung, Warwickshire Libraries and Complex Development Projects the people behind the creative village FARGO in Coventry.
